Would you buy a North Vegas or Ozone C4?

Postby bortola » Tue Sep 28, 2010 1:42 am

Hello All,

I ended up falling in love with wakestyle riding and I am seriously considering updgrading my quiver. I currently ride Eclipse thursters and nanos that my wife will take full possession. I have been landing some s-bends and tantrums here and there. After doing some research I narrowed down to two options: the North Vegas and the Ozone C4. I know one is a 5-line and the other a 4-line concept. Since my landing rate is of about 50%, riding a kite with a reasonable relaunch would be nice.

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

thx

I have tried C4 4-5 times and I have a Vegas 2009 10 m2, and have tried the Vegas 2010 12m once.

Personally I would get the C4. The 2010 is a great kite and the 2011 will as I understand it come with 2 settings for either wakestyle or freestyle and have a bit more grunt which is good for heavier persons like me.
The Vegas is of course also a good kite. I just personally landed my tricks better on the C4.

Another option would be the Airush Vapor.

I haven't ridden the C4 - but the above is a hell of an endorsement. THe 2010 Vegas is the bomb!

C4 all the way. As previously mentioned it's great for landing tricks. And it loops incredibly smoothly so theres no surprises half way through.

I fly the 2010 model and have found the re launch is amazing.

In terms of trying new tricks, Ive never felt more confident than while using the C4.

And you don't feel this way about the Vegas? This is a big part of the magic of a Vegas.

Try them both, and make your own decision, or...buy the one you get the best deal on or that your buddies ride. I think they are both good for what you want.

I'm with you there - I'm thinking those riders haven't tried a 2010 Vegas... I only have a few hours on the C4, so I refrain from comparison, but the 2010 Vegas is a really special kite... 10M is the best kite I've ever flown

Fair comments, Both are good/wicked... my personal fav is the c4 (I like the bar/chicken loop setup).
Each to their own.

Baller got it right though, go with the one you can get the best deal or mates ride.

Good luck picking one.
