I cant make up my mind to go for the 2010 Wainman or the NEW Furia LTD.
Any thoughts? ha anyone tried back to back?
Right now I have the Cults and I like them.

Jordon,

I just demo'd the Waiman kites and I am super impressed!! The simplicity and tuneability of the kites is very nice.. You can tweek the kite to your riding style.. The other thing I like is the very simple and small bridles, definitely won't be a problem in the surf!!

Let me know if you have any other questions!!

i guess no one of you suggesters have ever stood close to a furia LTD or even a takoon, since they are not too common in USA. the build quality on takoon is one of the most fundamental in the industry since 2005. the pure will be more comparable to the rabbit from takoon line, byt the furia LTD is an exceptional 3rd generation wave/freestyle SLE that really has every detail worked out to the max on the kite, on the bar and on everything it does.

Agreed the Takoon is a top kite and would be as good as or better in build quality.

It's true I have not flown a Takoon but the Wainman kites become yours from the tune ability. Bar pressure, turn speed, and even the chicken loop! You can not go wrong with the Rabbits.

If you are in the US, then the Takoon is not a good choice. There are no dealers, that I know of, and very few people fly them.

If in Europe, go with what you like and what your peers fly.
