I would get the 9.5 psycho. It is a really great kite. I don't think there is any gap between the 9.5 psycho and the 16.5 warrior.

There is no gap between the 16.5 and the 9.3 warriors either.

Best regards,

Marc

I'll go along with Mr Munzer on that, I have a 16.5 and 9.3 warrior and they fit together well.

Armin from flysurfer reckons I should replace the the 9.3 warrior with a 9.5 psycho and just to upgrade my 16.5 warrior with the wac system. If I was rich enough I'd replace both with pyscho's though.

Both.

1. In stronger winds (17 knots and up), de-power, kite above you -> full power, you will be lifted into the air.

2. In any wind (even a light breeze) do the side to side thing, through the power zone, power up when kite reaches the zenith.

Beware in higher winds, I would not recommend to do this on the beach, unless it is very wide, NO obstacles, and soft and sandy.

Use your head, preferably not as a downwind braking system :grin:

big smelly of course i've tried it, i'm the uk rep, i've been using the prototypes and the full kites for a month now. i've spent over 3 full weeks out on them nearly every day.

and 22 knots would be impossible for me in the uk, the colder air pushes the kite way harder and has much more effect in gusts.

the kite does have a huge depower range, but for me it starts being fun around 8 knots and rocks at 13-14 upto 20 but over 20, i simply couldnt edge the tail of that loose 140 enough, and i run mine with the 160 fins on the heelside.

who would have thought it would have made so much difference

No shit. I find it hard to believe that cold air can have such a difference. I will wait for winter, and then see what happens. We are both talking about the 12.5, yes?

Again - you talkin' bout da 12.5?

Hello Big Smelly and Gaffer, you can increase the WAC system by moving the second V-line (black) up or down 3cm.
This has a HUGE effect on depower, flysurfer
send out a e-mail featuring this.
If you do not have it email one of the Flysurfer importers, they should have it for you.

As proof we were out in 15-20 knots (with the second v-line connection up 3cm) and the 12.5 felt big (148cm board), we then set it back (3cm down) and could sail easily and hold the kite till 25 knots.

Another proof of the tremendous range of this kite.

When you say up - I presume you mean towards the kite, and down towards the bar...

Also, second v line? You mean not the A lines, but the B lines? Black... OK I will have a look, although I don't think I want to de-power this baby any more at the moment. I am perfectly happy with her the way she is at 20 knots. Will see what happens above this...:grin:

Yep that's what I mean.

It's the knot on top of the depower knot line:
