RHINO 2 vs TORO 2 - help !!!!!!!!!!

Postby Guest » Thu Mar 27, 2003 9:09 pm

What does a heavy beginner/intermediate use for light winds (, 10-12 mph)?
20m size
RHINO 2
Or
TORO 2

What are the differences between these 2 kites
What advantages?
What disadvantages?

THANKS

don't know about the toro 2 20m2
but i do know that the rhino 2 20m2 rocks
i have never flown a better light air kite
the thing has range!! i weigh 220 lbs and i can get going in 9 knots and hold it down to nearly 20
i would say that once you get the set-up down (kite and bar) the kites is easy to use and is easy enough for a intermediate to use
i think beginners should probably stick to a smaller kite and a bit more wind no matter what, because big kites are just harder to use no matter what

Wouldn't suggest a 20M kite for a beginner.

if your not an expert kiter take the Toro much easier to waterstart, till now I never managed to waterstart the 20m2 Rhino2, so if you drop it you swim!!!!!! furthermore if your not over 85kg you don't need an 20m2.....

I don't understand. :roll:
This is an easy kite to relaunch.
In 8 kts of wind it rolls over and you just pull on the outside (back) line on one side to get it to the edge of the window. Just before it reaches the edge give that same lina a hard pull and the kite will shoot up.
this is only a problem if there is too little wind or you have the kite oversheeted.

P.S. NOT A BEGINERS KITE

And for you I think it is perfect - the TORO.

The biggest Toro2 is 18m2. For a beginner, I suggest to go for smaller kites because the big once can get overpowerd very fast which would lead you into dangeres situations. So, start with 14 or maybe 16 and than you can see, philippinho
