X4 18 Rocks

Postby Kiteboarddog » Fri Jun 11, 2004 9:07 pm

Just got my X4 18
rode last night in around 12 gusting to 16 mph and felt a little underpowered.
I am used to more back line tension from my 17m 03 fuel.
I was riding my Hana Crew D2 130 x 49 2" fins
I am 200 lbs
Water very choppy thanks to the Waverunner dodging back and forth and the waves coming off the bay.
I went up wind easy.
When I sent it I was pleasently surprised.
Good Jumps with good hangtime.
My timing is still a little off and I think I will like this kite even more when I ride it in steady 16mph or more winds.
It deffenately has good low end but won't replace my V4 25 for ultimate low wind.
The top end is what I am excieted about.
It feels like it will have a lot of depower but I will let you know when I get the chance to ride it overpowerd.
This Is the first kite I have had that I don't need to feel a little overpowered to get big air.

Hi

Does any one have a comparison with the low end of these kites.

Do they start at the same time etc. ?

Thanks

Wilbur

I am refering to the X4 and V4

Forgot to reference the kites.

I am refering to the X4 and V4.

Any one with comparisons out there, also any one used the Boxer 19m?
