naish v4 10sqm

Postby mat[44] » Wed Sep 22, 2004 11:50 am


i'm beginner/intermediate (little jumps, no rotations yet). i ride an airblast 10 (13.6 projected) and a skoop 17. i weight 70 kg.

What's the V4 10 windrandge? I want a kite for the 20+ knots.
Would the v4 10 do the trick? Or should i go for a 8m?

I can buy both at 600€ with bar and lines is it good?

V4 10

That is the right next size down from your AB kite. The 10m v4 is an excellent kite, and works very well in the range you are asking about, over 20kt. I'm 96kg, and use the kite in up to 30kt of wind.

I also have the 8m v4, and don't fly that kite very often, as the 10m is so rangy and fun.

Given your quiver size, 10m is the next step. Going to an 8 is too large of a gap: there are many perfect 10m days.

Have fun, Zeev.

mmmh, I didn't like it at all. Preffered the Boxer 10, much more stable, better lift and hangtime. And in gusty winds not that charming. Boxer is way better in my opinion!

Depending on the winds you get you should decide.
The 10 would bea better setup, but if you have strong winds many times, the 8 gets more used.
