I'm thinking to buy an other kite (bigger), I've got an Cabrinha black tip 2001 7. I were thinking about Naish x2, gaastra gxr or takoon skoop. I were thinking around 14m2 (x2) Some opinons about kind of kite?

Thnx Marthain

The Gaastra jumps much better and easy to handle and jump, built as good.
the 14.5m' 12-14 to 28-30 knots. the 16.5m' 9-12 to 22-25 knots.
The Gaastra is a pro kite, very good one.

Dah.....I guess you didn't see the signature about condoms?

I guess we know how smart the buyers of those kites are.

Gaastra has better low end than Naish. I have a 14 GXR and fly it comfortably in 13-23 knots(I am 83kg).The Gaastra is steadier overhead and jumps great. Naish has better top end range and is steadier in gusty wind, it is a stiffer fealing kite. Hope that helps, Stefan

In my opinion, the frontline flyers, takoon,x2,air blast, are the high performace kites, and as such are the best type of kite two own if you want to be fine tuned. the backliners are about grunt,grunt,grunt, if your into grunt they are the best. The sweetest part is that whatever your style there is a kite for you. Your first decission then is what style do you want to aspire to?

I would say both styles are high performance and the grunty style requires MORE skill to ride, but rewards those who are up to the challange with the biggest jumps. Rhino2 won the hang time at the Red Bull against everything Naish threw at it, including the X10.

also concider the Rhino2 14.0.

I didn't try the Gaastra nor the Rhino2, but the X2 14.0 I love.
great performance, but can't say if any other is better or not.

The X2 is very stable and jumps great.... but it seems that any new kite is gonna do this now. Have you considered the medium aspect kites like the TOTO or AERO??? good bottom end for those lighter winds...
