Hi guys!

I've been offered a Arx 23,5 from last year at a really great price, and I've been seriously considering the offer. Mainly because of the slow winds we had in Denmark last summer.

But I've been hearing some bad stuff about last years huge kites - such as bad handling and stuff...

Anyone with some good advice? Is the kite no good or what?

cheers

Hi Tom,

I had an ARX 21.5 last year and used it about 5 times. I never really had a great day with it and you have to be really strong to steer it. Even it is a good price, it is not worth it. Save the money and even more to get a 2002 kite in big sizes, since they will be faster and less forces needed. The North Rhino 22.5 is good, and I'm looking forward to test the X2 20. But at the moment a great kite for slow winds is the MastAir 16 from Flysurfer. Since it is so light it has no problems in light winds and provides good pull. Restart is easy compared to big tubes.

Greetings
Toby

Hi there,à
I'm of the same opinion of Toby,
I would rather consider FLYSURF.DE if not mastair that gets you on the plane really with no wind, you can evaluate the Worrior 20.5
I had a session with the 16.5 today and it is really effortless control and power with light to medium wind 8-18 knots. The Worrior 20.5 should be your choice.
Cheers
