slingshot 2009 fuels

Postby peel » Sun Oct 12, 2008 11:16 pm

HI Shymac ,
i have sold my REVs to get back on the fuels for 09 of which i have always had since 04 and greatly missed them for that year . the rev was cool though .
i have kept my 13 rev and buying a 13 fuel and a 11m fuel and weight in at about 94kg do you think thats about right
wots the low end on the new fuels much better i hope ?

I'm 96kg and I have '09 FUEL 13,11,9.
I could use FUEL13 and Glide on 5m/s wind.Low end is much better than '08 FUEL.
Any way it's slightly bigger than '08.
Also surprised it makes big pop airtime.
Relaunch is very easy as Rev.

Shymac thanks for the info ,

So would you say that the 13m fuel 09 is in place of a 15m 07/08 fuel if there was 1 . What iam trying to get at is that lets say it's 16 17 knots with a lunacy 132 would the fuel be as good or as near to the 13m rev ? cos i have a buyer for it and then i could get a 9m but in 2007 i only used my 9m fuel about 3 times . maybe it was'nt that windy

I so missed the fuels for a year , i can't wait till i get them
p.s don't mean to be gay but what sort of colours are they coming in bar white and black
or will it be the same as they normally do lots of all sorts

I'm not Shymac.
Just a Slingshot importer for Japan.

I used Lunacy 135 and '09 Fuel 13m on 8m/s to 10m/s condition.It was as great as never experenced before.

It was very best matching.

I thought Fuel13 is more powerful than Rev13.

As for the bar color my all strage was White,Black and Gold.

As for kite color combination is here.Color number is just for Japan.

Not international.

:idea: Remember color combos are very random and some are not even available depending on what region your in.

Happy Hunting...
