Hi all !
What would be the perfect 3 kite Skoop quiver ?
12.5, 8.5, 6.5
12.5, 8.5, 5

I'm affraid the gap between 8.5 and 5 is too big...
I'm 160 lbs, ride Slingshot skate 157, advanced rider, won't kite in more then 30kn, I'm going to use these kite in winter too...

Depending on the strongest winds you want to use it in. The 8.5 can be depowered very good, so the gap might not be too big.
But the 5 will be quiet fast and using it in that strong winds is very dangerous.
So maybe go for th 6.5 and fly it to the limit and above it stay at home.

I just bought a Takoon quiver (they arrived tonight :smile:

I have the 12.5, 8.5 and 6.5 A Takoon rider from england advised me to take these 3 kites as the optimal Takoon quiver.

Kites look great and really strong.

With this quiver you're good.No problem you can ride from 7-8knots to 30-35knots easily.
