My X2's definately have more range than the set of ARX's I had before. I regularly rig my 14m kite when the wind is just over 20 these days. Previously I used my 9.5 as soon as the wind hit about 18knots.

I have used my 14m X2 when most people were on kites ranging from 8-12.

it wasn't very gusty, but lulls to 25, in the gusts I was unable to walk backwards without getting lifted...
The jumps were insane, even without a lot of speed, jumps were huge, with amazing hangtime.. very controlled..

oh.. but wait, we were supposed to be talking about Rhino IIs.. oops :smile: :smile: :smile:

Nah bro let's talk about X2's as I've never ridden a Rhino....

I've ridden BIG RED though..... and that things a sod to edge against... real hard edging.....

X2's...... piece of cake....

As for Wipikas...... I know someone who's used an 8.4 AB in over 30 knots..... and he ain't an expert either... but he needs at least 15 knots to get going... a 2:1 depower.... that's not that brilliant....

My 11.5m ARX went from 10 to 20 knots.... once again 2:1 depower.... the X2 has about 2.5:1 depower.....
