@Johnny - Fuel 9 / GTO 9 or even Fuel 7 below Fuel 11

Postby Guest » Tue Apr 29, 2003 3:14 pm

Hi Johnny,

I´ve not yet decided for my smallest kite and need your advise:

Below Fuel 11 I guess Fuel 9 with 9.8 m flat is quite near and not that small for a 75kg rider for 25kts conditions I guess. What do you think about going down to Fuel 7, which turned out to be 8m flat or optionally go for GTO 9, which seems to be really 9m flat !? Will share it with my girl friend anyway ..

thanks for help !

He must be on the water!

I am not sure if those Tampa boyz get much time on the small Fuels or GTO's.

I need a high wind kite too. The 11Fuel gets a little big when it hits 30+ for me.

Hi Foxi,

You might want to try this contact for Johnny as I don't think he's hanging out around this forum as much these days.

If it were me, I would go with the GTO. They are much smoother and better behaved in higher winds in my opinion. They also give much smoother power in gusty winds and the high winds around here are usually pretty gusty too. They make the difference for me between survival sailing and out having a good time.
