GK Sonic 14 vs Takoon Nova 15

Postby ed257 » Mon Jan 02, 2006 4:11 pm

Has anyone ridden both of these kites? If so, please share your insights.

- wind range
- speed across the window
- boost
- depower
- risk of inversion

Thanks,

Ed

i`ve tried the sonic11 and nova 12 in light wind on snow. the nova is softer on the bar, easier to relaunch in light conditions with the reverse launch method. felt more powerful. the sonic is more reactive. better turning speed. feels a lot more like a C kite. i guess the same should apply to larger sizes, although i haven`t flown the larger sonic.
