Starkites vs Liquid Force

Postby Kitesurfing1 » Thu Mar 10, 2011 4:36 am

I start kiting last year...

I am 180 pound and owned a 9.5 Starkites Sbow.... I would like to complete my quiver with a bigger kite and a smaller one. I am a freerider and don't start to jump yet( it will comes!!)

I was thinking for bigger:

EXA 13
or
Havoc 12 or 14

and smaller

SBow 6, Havoc 6 or exa 7

I need suggestions?

Hi kitesurfing1
I tested the Havoc 2011 10m, great high-end, but the low end is not it's strongest point. (rider 95 kg) Test a 14m in low winds before you buy it, you can feel how fast the big kite turns, how much steering power it costs, his low-end and high-end if the wind increase.

Sure, go with the Havoc. Much better kite. Great all round performance

Haven't flown the Havocs since 2008 I used to teach on them. After getting a 9m ExA I would say ExA all the way.
