You will get a wind range of approx 15 to 25+knots, with that kite.

A mate had the same kite, and I would say the range was smaller than above, 17-23 knts would be nice and comfortable, thats Uk wind, cold and dense.

In the learning fase the range will be small any way.

After you've mastered the kite better the range will get bigger, but don't expect a big range. Toro10 has a rather poor range. At least the Toro8 has and I suppose the range of the Toro10 will not be a lot better.

It's an excellent kite to learn how to kite. Stable, constant power and waterrelauchability is excellent. With enough wind it practically relauches by itself :thumb:

If you're learning, use any kite in the bottom end of its range, so if your kite goes from 15-25 only use it in 15-20 until you get comfy it. You can fly it in less too so you get the feel of flying it
