16.5 Warrior

Postby Guest » Sat Apr 12, 2003 12:26 am

Can anyone tell me how the 16 Warrior fly's say compared to my 9.3?

I'm sure the 16 will be slower, but is it so slow that it makes steering the kite an issue? Also, how does it perform say compared to LEI's of this size. Is it faster than them and does it take more effort to fly.

Also, is the WAC upgrade for the 16 worth it? Can it be easy install? Can you still use the standard bar?

I've been told that the 16 fits with my 9.3 well, but I'm not comfortable yet riding my 9.3 in the top part of its wind range. So would this be the case with the 16 and I would then have to much gap between the two kites?

>>It depends on your weight.
>>The wac system will make it turn better and give better depower so it is worth the $75
>>Any 15/16m and 9m combo from flysurfer whether it is the warrior, titan or psycho covers alot of wind range.
>>I always thought the 16 was better for low end than to try to take it into high teens / low 20's - it pulls like a truck and jumps in 10mph.

my weight is about 85kg riding a 142 Wave Tray.

What do you believe the top end of the 16 is with out being way over powered.
