What kite?

Postby Skooner Jr. » Thu Aug 19, 2010 4:40 am

I'll try to make this short.

I currently have a 2010 10m Switchblade which I really enjoy BUT I have been doing alot more unhooking so my arms and shoulders are wore out. I would like another kite that would give me some rest time when I'm not unhooked. I'm going to keep my SB and this would just be a bonus kite. I love how my the SB has massive hangtime and range so this new kite wouldn't need to float forever but should jump decently.

So what would fit the bill that unhooks great with light bar pressure and jumps ok and loops great and relaunches well due to the abuse its going to take but light pressure is a priority.....

I have some of the basic unhooked tricks figured but can't get beyond the surface pass, I realise its not the kite but the rider but obviously some kites boost better than others so some must unhook and slack better also.

12m Ozone C4 2010
11m Cabrinha Nomad 2011
11m Bandit III
12m Vapor X 2010
12m Liquid Force Envy 2011
12m Liquid Force Havoc 2011
11m Fuel 2011
12m Vegas 2011
12m RPM (I tried this kite and its very good but I personally find the bar feeling kinda twitchy, might be due the solidness of my SB)

Blade Vertigo or Trigger.

Just the same as you have listed but better pricing also lighter bar pressure.
