Slingshot RPM Windrange

Postby tswierkocki » Thu Apr 29, 2010 2:01 pm

Can someone tell what the which size RPM would replace a 9M Waroo to get the same lowend? Will the 8M do it or is the 10M a better choice?

Slingy really need to start filling in the gaps like most companies do in the smaller sizes.

Ive got the the 6,10 and 12m. The 10 is exactly like the 12, very sick kites, great for unhooked. The 6 is way fast, so i dont know if the 8 is gonna be like the 10 or the 6. I would definitely recommend the 10 as you can top it out till 30 kts easy, depending how big you are... I you compare the middle strut on the 10 to the 12, youll see its a bit fatter and tapered. i think this gives drag to keep the kite acting like the 12

Ah ha...see now your talking......I needed 13 & 9 RPM's this year but not available, so I had to keep the 13 REV2 for light wind and then I got a 10 RPM but then realised I needed an 8m aswell which was just too much money in the end.
One of the most common complaints I heard was the size choice so glad you are addressing that issue in 2011 :thumb: :thumb:
By the way....IMO, no one want's a 14m with a 10 foot bar either!!!....you only need a 13 that will fly on the 20" bar.
