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 !Aki wrote:I currently am riding the nova 2 (12m & 9m). I love the 9. I was thinking about changing to the Furia but was wondering about the following:
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.
I use the 13m2 with 9 meter extensions in light wind - and it is still as responsive.mikelet wrote:I'm seriously lookin for replacing my 06 quiver with Furias too.Seems to have all i'm lookin for & got very good reports.Anyway the first kite i need to replace is my bigger one,just want to know which could be the low end on the 13m Furia for my 83 kg.??? I'm currently riding a 5'6 surfboard most of the time out there.
All people said it's a fast turning kite,but i'm wondering if it's because comes with standar 21m. lines,anyone that tried it with 4 or 5 meters extensions can confirm the reactivity & turning speed of the kite remains very good???,Can you guys compare to other kites from other brands in similar size??
So true - I dont use longer lines in anything but "hardly possible to kite at all", and very rare....adfree wrote:I was riding my 13m Furia in 13-15 knots yesterday (80kgs on 133 TT). No one was having much fun but I was getting some proper air when I timed it right due to the kite's speed.
I am not sure that I agree with the long lines to work the kite principle. If you can't park it - whats the point?
