1. How does the bar pressure on the Furia compare to the Nova2? More than the 9m nova2 (which has more bar pressure than the 12m nova2)?
2. I find it tricky to do 1-handed jumps on the 9m nova2 without sending the kite into a loop as the bar pressure is higher. Is that likely to be the case with the Furia?
3. From what I've read the Furia seems ultra manouvrable. Does that mean that its always turning in one direction or the other (ie requiring constant adjustment)? ..or can it be parked for cruising like the nova2?
Any feedback much appreciated.
1. The Furia has adjustable bar pressure - so you can get as light pressure as your Nova2 12m2, or even more than your 9m2 Nova2. Your choice !
2. Hmmm - I dont think ANY kite (except for poor turning slow kites) can help you with this one - you have to work on controlling your kite better onehanded
3. It IS ultra manouvrable, but not instable, as it is 1:1 - so parking it is easy
But you are right - the early 2:1 Bow kites often has the tendency to be a bit "instable" because of the physics in a 2:1 bar
The other difference from your Nova2's will be more depower on shorter stroke, which is nice.
You get an extremely lively kite, very fast and "C" feel, and again with more depower
But your Nova2's will still have more max depower and still be controllable.
