Who knows, maybe I did buy the wrong kite. All I know is that when I flew it, I liked it a lot. Furthermore, the fact that the wind was shitty when I did means that this kite will be even better in strong winds, and I am looking forward to giving it a real review in stronger wind conditions.skyte wrote:hehe, it's HADLOW'S kite. It's not a Fusion3 with Hadlow's name on it. It's the kite he won his 4th World Title on that Flexifoil developed with him over 3years to suit his riding style and to meet his requirements.
Can't get more depower by lengthening the centreline? If you're thinking about depowering it, you bought the wrong kite!
If you open the instruction manual... you bought the wrong kite!
If you consider using the 5line setup for better safety and easier relaunch... you bought the wrong kite!
It pulls like a truck so you can get maximum pop with the kite low. Depower is NOT an option Hadlow didn't ask the Flexi R&D Team "Design me a kite with great depower please!"
I lent a proto 11m AHPro to a friend last weekend and his comment was... "Biggest grin factor session I've had for years!"
Kiddo, you can do with the kite whatever you want. It is yours! Hope that the wind will come up around SB soon .......skyte wrote:cSutt... sorry mate, just having a laugh!
I rode the Fusions and the Fusion2s and with the 5th line they had more depower than the AHPro. I prefer the AHPro in 5line mode because relaunch is easier and it's a safety system but that's partly why I chose to go Ion3 this year... suits me and what I want from a kite better!
Riding a C-kite with hardly any depower will develop your board skills to deal with gusts which is no bad thing.
You can get dialed into any kite, but especially with the AHPro, there's no point trying to change it to suit your style... ride it and adapt your style I guess!
like besttaste says... enjoy it... that's the main thing!
