10m 2005 c02 and the rest of the 2005 line up

Postby jon mod » Fri Feb 04, 2005 4:47 am

hey i post under this name and mini V just so u know

i rode this kite for the first time during the jupiter kite invasion last week
there is some videos of it on kite flix

i have now finally met my goal in trying all sizes of the nitro and c02 all the way down from 14 to 6.5

i know thats alot of kites

heres the scoop all the nitros have more hangtime and lift as u would expect of the higher aspect kites. for the handlepasses i am now on all the c02 kites because its a more solid pull while unhooked

so if u want big big jumps do the nitro

if all u want to do is wakestyle c02

waves c02

kiteloops nitro if u wanna get a BIG yank c02 if ur learning

my favorite kite 12 c02

favorite in waves 8 or 10

big air 10 nitro

learning recommendation in light wind all the c02 kites heavier wind try the new element

I'm 72kg and ride a JP 128. The sweet spot for me on the 10m CO2 is around 18 to 20 knots.
This kite is my favourite when the wind is right.
