THANKS.
IM CURRENTLY RIDIN` A REV BUT FIND IT IS TOO FAST FOR FREESTYLE/WAKESTYLE, THE T3 HAS MORE GRUNT, DIFFERENT BRIDLE OPTIONS, BETTER RELAUNCH, SLOWER TURNING, MORE STABLE & MORE OF A PARK N RIDE KITE OPPOSED TO THE REV WHICH IS A SURF KITE ETC.. SO I AM THINKING MAYBE IT WILL BE A BETTER FREESTYLE/WAKESTYLE KITE.
(BTW I WILL TRY EM BOTH B2B BUT WIND IS CRAP IN WINTER)
PLEASE NEED REPLIES!!

Hi Aden,
I would stay with the rev, I havent flown the T3 but I love the way the rev reacts when unhooking and how it flys very close to the edge of the window more like a c-kite and the way it looses power when landing. I dont know it just feels in control all the time. The only thing I dont like much is the light bar feeling, but this has changed for the 09 more options to trim the kite and bar pressure.

I would guess the t3 will really be all that you said but it would be just another bow, that keeps pulling like crazy everytime even after landing. maybe you like that but I dont, your choice!!

keep ripping! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

IM PROB NOT GETTING THE T3, AM WAITING TO TRY TE 09 REV AS I HAVE HEARD IT WILL HAVE A BETTER LOW END (MORE GRUNT), AND LIKE THE T3 WILL HAVE DIFFERENT OPTIONS ON THE KITE (TO MAKE IT SLOWER OR FASTER AND TO CHANGE THE BAR PRESSURE I'D GUESS.)

What do you mean it loses power when landing (wouldn't that be a bad thing??)
And about how the T3 just keeps pulling??

I'm not saying that i'd prefer it to just keep pulling, I'm just not sure what you mean!

i feel too much power on my REV when trying handle passes...you gauys think it would be easier on fuel´s? rev´s get a constant and huge pull when unkooked. well, that´s what i feel. Some guys say Fuel´s get a little soft on the pull once you made your pop jump unhooked, and that´s when the handle pass must be done....is that true?

well after I started this post, I realised what the different types of kites do.
bow=freeride, C=freestyle/wakestyle, hybrid=both.

Now im waiting for the 09 FUEL as there is no better kite than that(FUELS) for freestyle/wakestyle.

I think you'll like the '09 REV2 on the highest bar pressure setting. May slow it down a little for you (but it still turns faster than T3s) but you'll get the grunt you are looking for.

I just went from T3s to REV2s and on the highest bp setting, it feels just like a T3 (but turns faster).

Don't get caught up in the Len10 Fuel hype :lol: ...everybody that wants to go freestyle doesn't have to be on a fuel. If you're already on the REVs, try out the new ones!

Unless you're hardcore. Are you hardcore? Then you need Fuels. Only way to get respect. Pussies ride bridles.
