11m Sonic vs 12m Waroo

Postby ImagineParadise » Mon May 08, 2006 4:28 am

I tryed to search for a thread like this and I swear that I saw it somewhere but what the hell, heres another one. So, any preference? What kite quiver would you recommend? 8gk/12waro or 9war/14gk for a 85kg rider. Something different? Any help is appreciated!

why combine 2 brands?

also why not go for a more modern kite?

Sonic and Waroo are both "modern" kites....
Additionally the SONIC has been tested substantially....

I have the Sonic 11 and the Waroo 7 because the Sonic came out before Best announded the Waroo. Both are excellent kites and you can't go wrong with either. I think it is better to stay with one brand and model, even though I didn't.

tHE WAROO WILL HAVE ALOT MORE GRUNT AT THE LOW END BUT IS AT A LOSSS COMPARED TO SONIC AT THE HIGH END., SO i WOULD DEFINTELY GO FOR THE WAROO FOR THE LOWEND KITE. i WAS ALSO DISAPPOINTED WITH THE 14 SONIKS HANDLN, IT REQUIRED A 55+ CM BAR TO JUST FLY OK, A 60-65 IS REALLLY NEEDED TO MAKE IT MOVE WHERE AS THE WAROO 16 CAN BE FLOWN ON A 45CM BAR JUST FINE, SOMETHING WAS LOST IN THE TRANSLATION INTO THE BIGGER SONIC KITES.

Get the waroo and try it for 3 weeks. If you don't like it send it back for the whole dog ate your kite guarantee.
