Slingshot Octane water relaunch?

Postby stenovme » Wed Oct 26, 2005 12:52 pm

Could anyone compare the water relaunch characteristics of the Octane compared with the Fuel? I have been flying Naish Ravens and they suck for re-launching... I'm moving on. My old Fuels relaunch without a hitch, just wordering about the Octanes before I buy... my Machine 17.5 is a fantastic kite in the air and off the water if so be it...

Dude are you sure you mean Naish Raven's here? Relaunching with 5th is so easy......Never had any problem with it except when not inflated enough!
