Max wind for X3 18 / 16 and MachII 16?

Postby BlueSky » Tue Jun 10, 2003 2:48 pm

In Toby's X3 14 test report I read he could hold the X3 14 upto 7 beaufort (33 knots). This made me curious if it's possible to hold a 16 m2 upto 6 beaufort (27 knots). And how about the 18 m2?

Toby's table
3 Bft: 7-10 knts
4: 11-16 knts
5: 17-21 knts
6: 22-27 knts
7: 28-33 knts

(btw I'm 72kg/180, Toby's about 90 kg)

The MachII 16m is really a BIG kite. Lightweights won't need a bigger kite.

I'm 67kg and can have fun with it in 18knots on my WT137. My 90kg friend likes it upto 23/24knots.

Sometimes when I'm cought out in 20kn+ I can still manage but I get tired quickly.

On Sunday I was out in 12kn and doing 3m jumps, it was amazing ! :P

Yesterday I was out in 9kn but couldn't get upwind on my wt137 :cry:
