Apparently there are kiters using the X4 at the moment
I am still eagerly waiting on reviews and some answers on the following questions te axtract from them. before I buy.
When I look at the lecture and WWW in terms of high wind capabilities of the small X4 sizes I get the impression that the X4 delivers a less performance then in the mid-to low wind range.
- difficulty (to almost impossible) in steering the kite in high wind when allmost fully depowered. Due to deep profile.
- despite the depower-lengthening trick, still no realy good depower possibilities
Conclusion would be :
X4 only in low till mid-high wind range usable. Not in highwind
Anyone who can confirm this (with experience with a X4 12-10-8 meter), or has a comment on this statement.
I this all is true, would you then add a non-x4 to your range of X4 kites when considering a small size kite (< 12m )? Like a v4 or even an other brand?
Toby has done some testing on these kites, noticed this problem when testing them?
thx for you reactions
