Hi there, I´ve to buy a Kite quiver NOW and been on CO2s so far. I´d like to upgrade a bit but don´t want neither a super puller nor a non-relauncher. Is Rhino still best allrounder ?

thanks !

I think the Naish Aero could also be described as an allrounder. A friend of mine has an Aero 16. I tried it last weekend and it seemed excellent to me.
(I never tried the Rhino, so I cannot compare.)

Regards,

Greg

Aero, Toro and Rhino are good allrounders.
Maybe the Rhino has the most lift, but the restart with the Aero and Toro is easier.

a friend of mine just ordered a torro 16.
seems to be better than the rhino.
better lift, better depower, better handling, faster turning.

i don't know how goot the toro is - this is just information i got second hand - i never tried one.

From my experience using a Rhino16 and 9.3:
Rhino16 = An excellent allrounder.
Rhino9.3 = Very fast, power builds up very fast. If you fly the 9.3 overpowered you'd better know what you're doing. A matter of taste, but too fast for me.

Therefore my Rhino9.3 will be replaced by a Toro.

replaced by a Toro 10?
This kite is fast as well, better to try it before you buy it!

Replaced by a Toro12 and Toro8.

The Toro is supposed to be fast as well, but does not built up power as fast and thats the main difference.

I've used an AB6.3 2001 a couple of times and that does not built up power as fast also. The AB6.3 is known as nervous, but no way nervous compared to my Rhino9.3.
I think it has to do with being able to depower that there's no "residual power" left. The Toro is supposed to do the same.

Well, I will find out myself. If the Toro is about the same as a Rhino9.3 I will sell it. The North kites have an excellent second hand value, so no real harm done.

And yes I would like to try first but thats no option. I have used a Toro10 a couple of weeks ago, but the wind was only light (Rhino16 wind)
