I sold my two aeros and I am looking for two new once. I will go for a 8m2 and 12m2: What should I buy, has anybody any ideas?
Aero2, X2, Rhino2 or Mach2
You need to collect all the information you can on how these kites are different, then decide which kite suits your style.
When mr. anonymous says the x2 is best because it turns the fastest, that must suit his style. Not everybody judges the best kite by how fast it turns. He could be a first year kiter who sine flys his kite, or he could be a real light weight guy. Light weight guys make fast kites look SLOW.
Here is what I know.
The Aero2 turns as fast as the X2. The Aero2 should be a kite that parks and rides earlier than the x2. The Aero2 is higher aspect now, so jumps should be much better and easier than last year.
The Rhino2 turns fast enough for any weight rider, but probably still not as feather light on the bar as some kites. North riders don't like kites with no feel at the bar when doing tricks.
The x2 you should already know about. Very fast, soon to be replaced by the x3, which I personally think will have more low end power. I have that opinion because all the other 2002 kites that were fast, with poor low end, have had their power increased in 2003.
