nice one Alby!

I asked for the wind strength...about 20-25 knots

Hello Lindsey,

Have you had the chance to try it? could you compare it to the Best Roca?

Thanks

Yes - the Apollo is a much slower turning kite as expected. In terms of the boosting power its hard to say because I hadn't ridden the Apollo enough to get it dialed in but I'd say that once you get used to its timing the hangtime is equal to or perhaps better than the Roca. The Roca boost trajectory will send you a bit more vertically whereas the Apollo is more horizonta. The Roca is definitely much easier to loop and launch. Overall they are both equally good at what they do but for me I'm not a big fan of race specific kites.
