In the winds we tested not one of the riders could ride the Infinity upwind. I'm sure it was probably something with our board riding skills though.
Yikes! I really liked your review, and thought the format was pretty good, and I have assumed by your location (having ridden there myself) that you guys know your light wind kiting.
That being said, while I might understand not liking the V3 compared to the other kites, I find it extremely hard to believe that none of you could stay upwind on that kite. Granted, I have a V2 so I assume the V3 is better. I am a VERY AVERAGE kiter although I do spend a lot of time working light winds, and I have no trouble at all staying upwind on my V2. As a matter of fact, most of the time that I kite around other lightwind kites, I am often the only one holding my ground, and some of the kites you reviewed are having to walk back upwind. Sure, that is all about kiter ability and what board you are on, but I just can't believe you guys had that much trouble.
If you are looking for a lightwind kite, I would say to take all this "can't get upwind on the Infinity" talk with a grain of salt. I do know and believe it flies differently, but I have hours of really boring video that proves you can stay upwind on this kite in very light wind.
Sorry dudes, but it had to be said.
