No, I definitely don't want to kill "Royal Pain" (isn't that the villain bad girl in the super hero high school movie "Sky High"...) But, that's what I use, and I'm 170 lbs.marcfrm wrote:...Do you want to kill "royal pain " ?
I am 90 Kg (200 lbs) and I ride my 9 Xbow in the range 20 knots to 30 knots.
One thing is that EH doesn't seem to release kites on an annual basis like most manufacturers. Seems that, once he makes a significant improvement, he puts it into production without regard to what time of year it is. So the Rippehr went from v2 to v5 in about 18 months? As far as I know, the one I have is the early 2007 version.royal pain wrote:windrider, did you buy the 07 version and is that what you are referring to as a great kite? It is not the super flat bow like the 08s. Does it perform the same? How does it compare to your Best kites(as a frame of reference)?

The 8m would probably work super if your bottom end is truly around 17 mph.
