Increasing wind range

Postby Windfreak87 » Mon Jul 22, 2013 11:52 am

I'm 225, I ride a 2011 cabrinha crossbow 13m and 10m, I'm looking to increase my lowend. I have a light wind board, which I am able to mow the lawn at 12 knots and up. Basically I want to be able to ride a smaller board sooner. It's been apparent that I can't afford a brand new light wind kite and manufacturers are producing less kites so getting close out deals is less likely. So I was considering a switch nitro v2 16m. Can anybody give me a comparison of the nitro to an 16m crossbow? As far as low end, turning speed and wind range.
