Flysurfer boost compared to ozone edge?

Postby plummet » Wed Jun 22, 2016 7:57 am

Can someone compare me the boost to the edge?

Particularly interested in the 7m size.

Hi,

I flew the boost 11m in 25 knots last summer, really nice kite, feels very similar to the Edge but it does wander a little as you are flying it as it has very light bar pressure.

The boost loops better than the edge by a small amount and jumps pretty much the same.

nice kite!
Tone

Thanks Tone. Do you foresee any issues rigging a boost to a ozone bar?

I think one of the big differences between the two will be the trailing edge bridal available on the boost in sizes 11m and up. Supposedly this improves the low end and relaunchability, but I can't speak from experience.

In strong wind all new kites are good...less difference in small size...the difference is when wind very light and u can see if the kite are good or not...thats why in race use edge...
