Ozone Reo vs C4

Postby garyb » Tue Dec 06, 2011 4:51 pm

I was wondering if anyone could advise:
I have a quiver of 5, 7 and 9m 2010 C4's, and a well used 2008 12m light II
I am only interested in wave riding with surfboards, and find the C4's great for this.
I did own a 2010 10m Catalyst but sold it in preference to the C4's
I also owned a 2010 10m C4 which I did not like for some reason - so swapped it for the 9m which is a fantastic kite, especially on short lines. (anyone else find the 2010 10m a bit strange?)
I weigh around 75kg and find the 9m C4 is just about ok with lots of work and walking back upwind down to about 12knts with a 5'10" surfboard, as long as the wind is not too on-shore and the shore dump is not too big.
I need to replace the 12m Light as my low wind kite, ideally with a 10m.
I was wondering if anyone knows how much better the low end a 10m Reo would have over the 9m C4? I don't really want to go for another 12m kite.

Thanks

at 83kg i prefered the 10m c4 for my most used wind range.

i have 6m reo aswell. it feels very similar to the light. my previous high wind kite was a 8m light.

The reo is defo better in the waves. but if you also like to boost then the c4 is a better dual purpose kite.
