I'm not sure which statement you're asking about. The Toro2 will be the wave riders choice from North. More depower built into that one. The Rhino2 is built for jumping.On 2003-01-20 13:58, pitlisa wrote:
can you tell us anything about that last statement?
I addition to the bullet proof attachment of the struts to the LE, the TE of the struts are tucked into an additional piece at the end of the strut housing. Kind of hard to describe, but it makes for a nice clean flow over the rear of the struts, and protects the TE of the struts as well. There is no Velcro flap hanging outside of the strut (exposed to the wind on the TE) like what you would usually would see there.On 2003-01-20 10:32, shunter wrote:
Are the LF tensions and Cautions still using a large single piece canopy which on last years kites streched and caused TE flutter. Or have they put more span wise pannels in.
Havent seen any of the 03 kites yet just the last years apexes and the flaming flutting cautions.
When you all say construction is way better than other kites? what do you mean
Glued and taped seams?
Good strut to Le reinforcement?
Flat non canopy wear seams?
Valve steam reinforcements and tucked in behind LE?
I think it goes upwind great. Anyone who thinks otherwise must be nuts. Even low aspect kites go upwind great today. You would have to fly an old 2000 or 2001 low apsect kite to find something that stinks upwind.On 2003-01-21 11:57, pitlisa wrote:
what about the upwind performance, does it really pull a lot downwind.
I ask this because in light wind I prefer good upwind performance than high jumping.
