i have a 9.25M and two boards a 164 curver (takoon) and a 198cm F-one freespirit (direc) therefore can get out in big windrange, however thinking of selling Directional board prefer TT.
therefore what size warrior should i get a 12.5M or 16M to cover a higher windrange!??

bear in mind i weigh 90kg am ok with kites would say intermediate/beginner not expert so my wind ranges are less, can hold down kites ok but can't get going as early as board skills not as good as someone like Sq

any tips welcome

Seth,
You should definitely wait before considering a Warrior 16. The New depower system may improve what is otherwise a pretty disappointing kite. It doesn't move far enough to the edge of the window in low wind and it is hard to staw upwind as a result. If you need a kite NOW, get the 12.5.

seth.

the 16 is just a beast. hopefully the new depower will tame it.

i've got a 12m for sale, perfect condition, unused line and pulley set included. canopy has just been handwashed and reproofed. this kite looks and feels like it did when new, apart from the faint yellow staining on the trailing edge tape.

£500.
give sven a call it will be back in the shop on friday.

How did you reproof the kite? using a spray? what type off?

Thanks,
Pascal

a spray called team mclube, it is a silicon and teflon based zero build up spray.

its not actually a waterproofing, its a dry lubricant but ti works better than anything else i've ever tried.

it designed for spinnakers, and its not cheap.

the 12 and the 9 are reasonably close, but theres a big gap between the 9 and the 16 and the 16's just a total slag if its at all gusty. my least used kite, ever.

I don't notice any gap between my warrior 9.3 and 16.5. If anything there is a small overlap.

how do you find your 16M ??
Sven has one for sale with the psycho depower (WAC) system wondered about that as £600 seems good!
might wait until into new year and get someones as they upgrade!
so let me know, how does the 12 compare to the 16M interms of handling
can you get out with 12M and sine the kite whilst 16M you just hook in and tear upwind. I weigh 90kg (big ass) and have progressed to a cuver164 so want to get out more and more and more!!!1
