REV vs nova2

Postby lurmus » Sat Feb 02, 2008 6:11 pm

Hello!

Im 163lb and im using my nova2 12m in 14knots to 24knots...love it, but im thinking about bying the REV cuz somone told me that in has moore C-feel...is that true? And which size is best? would a REV 11 have the same range as my nova2 12?
Anyone heard any bad shit about the REV?

Big hug!

If you want C feeling and faster turning, rather compare the Rev to the Furia and make a choice from there, the Nova 2 doesn't even compare to the Rev. The Nova 2 is a pig compared to the Furia, its much faster. Can't comment on the range of the Rev 11, but the Furia 13m is closer to the Nova 2 12m.

I think its going to be a difficult choice with size with whatever kite you go for. I am a similar weight to you and it would be a tough call between a 13 and an 11 for that wind range. I have a 9m Takoon Furia and a 12m Takoon Nova 2 as well so I'd probably go 13m simply because I can shift to the 9m pretty soon so top end is not as much of an issue, but if I had to only go one kite for that windrange I'd probably stick with a 11m as a one kite quiver. Maybe good to test the 11m's in marginal conditions and see if they are grunty enough, the increases turning means they can generate a lot of power.

lurmus, go for the furia. It's a really good kite. Much more bar pressure compare to the Nova2
