Change my draft 12m Naish to an other kite ?

Postby flysurfing » Sun Jul 06, 2014 5:33 am

Hello All,

I have a draft 9 / 12 and 17M 2013 from Naish.

I'd like to have my 12m be more freestyle able and keep the draft 9 for huge jump in strong wind and the 17 for light wind.

would you please recommend me a kite within the naish range that could still offer me great jumping ability but also allow me some good freestyle (kiteloop, unhooked)...

Thanks for your advice,

Furfing

I'd say park...if it is between the park and torch. Park definitely has more hangtime than the Torch IMO. The Pivot might be an option too. :-)

Here i had the same problem....
first had the 12,9,7 draft but the Draft is to slow in the turning/freestyle in the bigger size so i changed my 12m Draft for a 12m Park problem solved.
