BEST Nemesis 12m 0wNz U

Postby nEwSkIn » Tue Apr 13, 2004 4:32 pm

Hi!

Just had the opportunity to go out yesterday with my new Best Nemesis 12m kite (along with a best standard bar and 27m lines), and let me tell you, I am very very satisfied with this kite (so far!).

I weigh around 73kg, and am not a very experienced rider; however I can feel and tell when I am riding a great kite. The conditions weren´t great anyway, but it was a good way to “testâ€

Downwind of me there were no people, safe enough?

BTW, by jellyfishing I only mean when the wingtips flap a bit, not when they clap on each other... the kite was super solid all the time.

Make sure you pump it up extra hard. These kites will jelly if not pumped up very hard, but when pumped up properly, everything gets better (stability, power, relaunching.)

i guess the effect he means is the tips flaring when oversheeting, pulling the bar in, as the lines were probably affecting the shape more than the wind, given the light wind.

try it in the right wind, they dont flare at all until you totally stall the kite backwards, if you've set your lines up that way.

Yup SQ, that was it!

I've had another chance to ride it in proper winds... no problem whatsoever! Great fun!
