What are some of the best relaunching kites right now?

Postby rtz » Mon Apr 29, 2013 6:51 am

Are there any stand out kites that have just amazing relaunch?

I imagine you've all been out on a 9-12m and the wind was kinda light and not great and either couldn't relaunch or it wasn't easy or took a long time.

Any kites flown lately that were just flat amazing? A kite that was noticeably better than all others?

from my experience is a matter of wind, if you have enough wind almost every kite would realaunch ok. i'm flying north's evo, it has a superb relaunch (and I think is almost the same in all delta kites)
it barely relauches itself!!!

The Best Kahoona relaunches the easiest. I have tried many other kites, but the Kahoona is by far the easiest to relaunch. I even take it wave kiting on bigger days even though it is not a wave kite because it relaunches better and faster than any other kite out there.

Any low aspect kite. Ie short and fat kites. High aspect, long and thin kites are the hardest to launch.
So in the ozone range reo is easiest. Edge is hardest.
