I flew the 7m in winds 25-40+knots. for me on the landboard at 82 pies the frenzy was sweet until 33ish knots and then i was just overpowered to hell. The 6m access i could hold to 38-40.
That's some serious wind power...
My 10m Airush Crest 2011 had me struggling on icey lake in 25+ kts + safety on it sucks,
So what do you want a storm kite for stupid conditions? then access is the answer.
or a dyanmic fun kite for high wind that you can jump and have more fun in the intermediate to high winds, but will be more powered in the hell gusty storms? then go the 7 frenzy.
PS i pressurme your looking at a foil for back country snow kiting and don't want a lei.
If lei is a an option then the 6m reo kicks the access and the frenzy to bits as a nuking wind storm kite. it has way more depower at the bar and can handle 25-45 knots with relative ease. Not as much lift as the frenzy tho. so the frenzy woudl still be more fun in the 20-30 range.
Yp, I'm looking for back-country/hills/mountains/get-me-safely-around kite. An emergency kite when you are out, caught in overpowering conditions, thrown in with some gusts and want to get home safely. Which would be safer to handle; let's say Access 6.5m or Frenzy 6.5m?
