10 airblast -10 amp comparison?

Postby surfing buster » Sun May 25, 2003 5:25 pm

any one out there that has used both of these kites?
can you give me a comparison. I have the 10 airblast and like it a lot and was wondering if the amp was better?
thanks

its not in the same ballpark.... :D


AMP is a more aeroII/Rhino2 kite, whith bottom pull, and in my world, the fantastisk AB 10,0 (´the bedst AB even imho,) is more like the X3... Fast flyer.. :roll:

You are so right - and the AB 10 should be compared to an AMP 8.7, regarding power.

And they are very different kites in all respects.

Good to see another who like me, think that the Airblast 10.0 is one of the (maybe THE) best kites ever seen :thumb:

I just loved it.

Yep, the AB10 has to be compared to the AMP8.7 regarding power.
The AMP8.7 is kind a mix of the AMP10.3 and AB8.4.
AMP is defenitely a faster and more predictable flyer then the AB2002.
Only plus left in the AB2002 is better depower (especially) in smaller sizes.

AMP is more allround then the R2. Almost the same low-end, way better high end/depower and a LOT faster flying. So the R2 and AMP are ONLY comparable regarding low-end.

The AMP is really the best of both world to me (70kg rider). I would still like a little more depower(only 70kg rider) in the smaller sizes.
