Which Rebel for me ? 9 or 7 ?

Postby Pixandco » Sat Aug 05, 2006 8:38 am

Hi,

I'm more and less a beginner (I can kite on +- 60m). I cant go upwind and I cant jump for the moment. I'm 75kg.

For the moment, I have a 14m² Vegas 04 (so when I'll be better, I'll use it from 12 to 22 kts), and I want to buy a 7 or a 9 Rebel for the strong wind.

Which one do I have to take, do you think ? If I take the 9, I wont use my 14 anymore (except in 12-14 kts..) ?

But what about the 7 ? Is that a very fast kite ?

Thanks and sorry for my bad English :)

7m is too small.

use the wind range charts on North's web site.
