Re: The new Uni Control Bar by Blade

Here is a helmet cam vid from last week that gives a look at the Unibar in use. http://youtu.be/Rq07K3ZnfP8 The Unibar is being used by riders with other brands of 4-line kites with great success. Most note worthy is the Cloud. :o The shorter throw needed is easy to dial in with this bar. It made my...

The new fat lady boosts so hard when its lit,
I really got to put out to keep up with her!
A very sweet kite when its fully powered lit up in 12 to 18.

-a video from a Fat session early in the week.
Powered performance on tt's or directionals, just go for it!
Makes the most out of poor wind conditions thats for sure.
I have not found the top end of this kite yet either...it rocks! :o

2 things I love about the v2 fat lady
Reacts like the trigger, quickly with precision and power,
and the uni-bar, such a deluxe compact bar for such a big kite.
All I need now is wind!

Re: Blade 2013 9m Trigger

the winds came and I was able to snag a sunset session with the 9m. 2 other riders were re-rigging to 7's, it was cranking in the gusts! The Trigger is so amazingly stable, the sheeting is perfectly matched by the Unibar and depowers the kite to the pressure that feels most comfortable. I could just...

Having one of these in the quiver makes for some sweet rides!

Re: 2013 Blade Fat Lady - Second Generation Light Wind Maven

I totally respect your experience about bar pressure. 8) The v1 had a lot of travel to reach that "depowered" state. I was using a 3 kite quiver last year, a 17-12-7 and used the FL in very powered conditions. To help with this, I added 4" of travel to the sheeting lines on the stock bar, out to the...

Re: 2013 Blade Fat Lady - Second Generation Light Wind Maven

Thats a good question...for MOMI. My observations so far... You have to really pump it hard, so its a stiffer skeleton. The middle strut is thinner than the mid strut on my 2013 9m Trigger, like WAY thinner. -and the draft is very pronounced. More lift and less drag perhaps. The wave setting pig tai...
