has anyone tried the rowdy 4.5 kite by rhombus? I was wondering if it was similar to the firebees or not.

The rowdy 4.5 is very similiar to the firebees, but i belive that production has ceased and Rhombus are currently building a 4.0 meter to go with the rest of the firebee range!!

Hey Ryan, yes i have tested all the sizes and would say if you were going to use a kite for mountainboarding i would personally go for blades. The firebee can not be used with a bar and is low pressure so needs to be pumped no good on a board.

or see if you can demo someone's f-one shadow, they're good for boarding as well and are usually set up with bar and simple three lines, can be tuned a bit for some limited range
