I would use the 28 meter lines, no doubt !

If you had constant lots of wind, and you were extremely experienced, and had your very own style - then you might try the 20 meter to see if it was "you".

But if you were, you would'nt ask about what length to use !

28 meter gives you the best windrange with the Takoons, and the perfect compromise between range and trick take off pop.

What can I say about Takoon Skoops that hasn't already been said a million times? Everyone here who has tried one loves them! I have the 6.8 and I weigh about 50kg. I can use it starting around 12-15mph and have flown it in gusts up to 30mph! It is a very stable kite with plenty of power, and a couple of the loyal Skoop riders here get huge air on theirs. As for durability, a good friend inadvertently put his 8.9 thru a series of kitemare torture tests (or is it the other way around?) and amazingly didn't get a single tear or puncture. These kites are built tough and of dacron so they won't delam like my Wipis! I wish I had more Skoops.

i've seen plenty of skoops go out of the shop and they area lightweight, very well performing kites.

but you don't want to weight the tips down and self launch on shingle beaches. the tips material is very lightweight, but i haven't heard of a single kite explode or snap. unlike 'every' other major brand.
