Re: any evo 2009 6m review??

It is a 6.5m I think they just call it a 7 for the range to flow better. Gypsy is stunning , tunable from fast to slow to turning, covers I think 8m-5m had mine out in 60mph in Nov on 17m lines. Got huge range top to bottom, even if the new one 0.5mbigger(which I doubt!) by the time you find the top...

Re: Wainman: 12+7 or 12+9?

If you can carry the Boss to 30mph you should be able to carry the Smoke to 40mph, after which stuff gets silly anyway. You could also then use the Smoke for less wind in waves. Think the gap from 12 to 7 would be too big for a 220lb guy.

Re: RPM or Rabbits...?

Have had my smoke up in plus 30mph regularly, huge boosts, very usable but that said the Gypsy is more practical if its regularly over/gusting plus 30mph. Also using them both in a lot less wind on my SS Celaritas.

Re: Bandit 3 11m Vs. Waiman Boss 12m (2010)

The kite is designed to totally depower if you ride suicide, to ensure it's got plenty of power and doesn't risk falling out of the sky, attach your back lines on the pigtail knot closest to the kite, I also lowered the top stopper on depower line down about 4/5 inches. Still gives plenty of depower...

Re: Bandit 3 11m Vs. Waiman Boss 12m (2010)

Am amazed you dont like the Boss 12m, after 10 yrs kiting and 13 different kites, I have found them and it to be my most favourite. Are you sure you rigged it right, as it's got great low end, big high end, boosts off the chart and can be made to turn really slow or fast. On top of that it's quick t...
