Slingshot Rally 2014 vs. Ozone Catalyst 2013/new 2014

Postby fca » Mon Oct 07, 2013 2:20 pm

Hey guys,

which one to chose?

-looking for good lowend
-wave performance
-freeride performance
-good upwind
-some unhooked tricks(backroll, frontroll, not real handlepasses)

My thoughts:
-Rally: much more lowend, better freeride, bad unhooking, more sheet and go
-Catalyst: better unhooking, D2 tecnoforce, big valve,

Someone help me to decide between that kites?!

Thanks a lot...

regards

Iksurf seem to think it rides unhooked ok The Rally this year is a very different kite.

The Rally 2014 is the same 2013 in shape, but has some extra steering attachment points.

Unhooking with the Rally, in the scenario's you described, is just fine, not bad at all. Compared to a Fuel for real freestyle tricks is another story of course.

I'm new to this forum...so at first hello to everyone.

for me it is the same question, but with special view on the catalyst and if it will fit heavy weight riders as well as the rally?

Make sure to try both kites if you can! I recently flew the 10 catalyst and it was fantastic! I have been on c4's a few years now and the feel of the catalyst was amazing and confidence inspiring. Both kites are pretty darn sweet. good luck with that decision. :thumb:
