News flash: This is just a poll, people.

You'd think that some people had bet their souls on the results.

I couldn't because I already sold mine.

I just bought an STD. I expect my quiver will contain a variety of styles for the next few years since I ride in a variety of conditions and locations (land, snow, water).

we can always do a new poll in summer, and compare the results. Should be interesting for everyone in the business...

sorry but I do not know.....

I am Happy with my C kites which are less than 2 Months old......

Why ??

Because......................

Wind range:

My Machine & Octane has both a huge wind range

Total de-power:

Well I guess at this point I have not been in a situation where I really need it.....


Ask me again next year!!!

Saludos

PS. and by the way I have been riding head to head with Crossbow´s Sonic´s and Nova´s ( all together in the same spot at the same time )and comparing to my Octane 12 all of then turns like old big trucks..... hi hi hi

This poll would mean more if it were taken after kites like the Vegas were on the market, and tested by everyone.

Right now all we have are people saying bows rule, without knowing why North is so confident C kites can equal, or beat, a bow in fun range.


Sounds like the lad is saying the Rhino 6 does not equal or beat a bow if we have to wait for the Vegas to be tested by everyone.

also if some people find interest in the PL V2 :) but in this forum I doubt it :bye:

it looks like foils are increasing and classic C will survive just a couple of seasons

that slice of the market will be somewhere shared
