That sounds like a sensible option.Goavegas wrote: ↑Wed May 02, 2018 4:57 amFor what I ave seen on the water the FX does not go so good upwind as I go with my switchblade,but still does it's job.Considering to keep my Switchblade 12 and 9 which are a little worn out,this are the kite I start kiting with so they have taken some beating,and add maybe a 10-8 and 6 FX.
I totally agreed with you, until I got a kite that wouldn't go up wind! It is the most frustrating thing. I'm a Cab fanboy, but the kite in question was an early 13m Contra. (15m & 17m were fine) They have changed the design since then I understand it's ok now.ichabod wrote: I've never quite understood the obsession with 'upwind ability'. Perhaps its just the type of kiting I do but even on a C I never find myself thinking 'damn I wish I could get upwind 10% faster". With any kind of decent power all kites go upwind fine don't they?
