Slingshot RPM 12m or Fuel 13m

Postby elmorfin » Wed Jul 17, 2013 8:38 pm

Im very applied to achieving freestyle moves (moves to blind, blind judge, etc) I have an RPM 9m. and liked it, although Im not too sure if a fuel 9m would help more to nail those moves im currently working on.
I have the doubt weather to go for a rpm12 or a fuel 13 as my big kite.
Any comments will be much appreciated.

Gracias.

I'd say stick with the same type: RPM.

Personally I would prefer the Fuel, but for the whole range. In the end, the RPM is a fine kite, also for freestyle tricks, it is a bit friendlier to the kiter, but lacks the fantastic Fuel slack. Just personal preference (BTW, after Fuels since 2004 just changed to Rally, mainly strapless wave for me).
