I'm interested in the safety features. Doc has used both and I figured he could shed some light on this, especially with his comments about the 5th lines.

Here you go, rastakite is 50 lbs more than I do and flying the Hellfish in the same wind range. He had the same experience as I do.
Looks like I could even go lower than 10mph with a bigger board what normally I would use in such a light wind.
It's mind blowing I still can't believe it, because all this happened so fast unexpectedly and you won't know the truth until you fly one.
The difference is like days and nights so you don't want to go back to the darkness because the truth is shocking and so bright........rastakite wrote:The 13m Hellfish
The wind was 10-12mph and I was riding the float 133 and I had PLENTY of power. I could jump and go up wind easy. the kite was super fast and responsive but it flies different then other kites. The wind was lite but I found that if I let the kite alone and not moved it up and down it generated more power the longer you just let it sit there. Really cool.
This thing felt like a much smaller kite but the hangtime was like a much bigger kite and the responsiveness was great no lag, you pull it goes like no other kite ive ever flown.
I weigh 180lbs.
