Does anybody have a review on the Bandit IV?

Postby Tio » Mon Oct 18, 2010 12:32 am

I've been riding with a 9mt and a 11mt Bandit 3. I saw that the B IV has three struts, and looks like a C kite. I would appreciate if anybody have information on the overall performance and anything about the bar pressure and turning speed on large sizes?. Thanks.

There are some reviews published on F-onekites.us forum. I am curious as well about the general feedback.

I have used a 10m Bandit 4 for about 30 minutes with 22 knots. I normalley fly slingshot fuels. I realley was impressed with the kite, quick predictable and easy to use. Going upwind was good, jumping was a bit more difficult, but this due to the differences I had to deal with my normal slingshot kites. I might be called more c-shaped, but it still is not the same....
The wind range is -off course- much better than a standard c-kite like a torch or fuel.
Hope this will help.
