I've taken a 9 One in over 40kts without any doubt of my safety or the kites performance.
Taking a 9m kite out in over 40 knots..... over 40 knots is 50 mph.
That's not safe by any measure.
This is just what we need another kite pimp saying his 9m kite is safe and performs just fine in 50 mph winds.
Kyle and Rocky...... reminds me of Bevis and Butthead.
In regards to safely flying a 9m in winds over 40, this is not a reccomendation to anyone to do the same.I found myself in a situation where the wind speed increased heavily in the Eastern part of the Gorge and the kite kept its composure under heavy load.
Sure, call me a pimp! I love working with Airush. I have my reasons to stick with a company that feels like family at this point. 7-8 years now. I certainly have some bias since I spend a ton of time on Airush kites but, I do try my best to keep things objective.
Rocky's attack is pretty immature and its a shame he hasnt replied with a legit review of the kite. His cred is getting crushed after 2 posts. Hopefully he can dig out of this and keep things on the positive from here on out. Id say it's pretty crucial this happens for Dimitri and Epic's sake.
Remember, I did not start this post. I am simply lending my personal experiences to this forum in defense of this kite.
