Good post. With my limited kiting skills I've noticed this to be true with the kites I fly (fuels).Peter_Frank wrote:I have a 5m2 ENova2 as my smallest.
It is a kite with extreme depower - and I love that.
I have tried many other 5m2 kites, both other Takoon kites and also other brands - and they have all had the same problem: They PULL too much when they are turned !
I like high depower small(est) kites
... not many of us out there hey!! One of the other guys at my local has a 16m Dyno and just about rides all winds too with the good 'ol Dyno. He too loves to fly! I think our new 14m Rebels are destined to sit in the back of the car for a long time!!!!Toby wrote:nice to know I am not the only one who wants to flyPuetz wrote:... 12m Rebel as my smallest used rarely
and 18m Dyno (with Kevlar lines) as my usual bread and butter every day kite.
You are right - I just put my weight (77kg) at the post.frankm1960 wrote:My smallest is a 5m fuel with TT.
Got a surf brd but not good with it.
My goto is the 11m fuel.
I should add i'm not a Fuel type kiter...just a hack... and own fuels cause i like good 5 line kites and fuels can still last even when you get them 2nd hand.
Also I'm a puny kiter at 63kg so a 5m is really not all that small for me... I had it out in probably under 20kts with no problems.
I wish others had put their weight in their posts... would've been good way to compare.
