Nope! 12m Speed 3.... My go to kite for highest jumps. 15m definitely has more hang time.Gotta be the 15m Speed 3...
Highest jumping kite I know!
Peter, I can jump higher on a 12m FS s3 than I can on my 9m fuel.Peter_Frank wrote:I was about to answer your post shortly after you posted it - untill I saw some of the answers, and realised you were NOT in search of a small kite with huge jumps
But a huge 15m2 kite with medium jumps instead.
My mistake - I read the title as "being able to jump 15m high" with good hangtime too, and as you wrote you only got really big kites (9 and 11 and 21m2) I thought you wanted a normal (wave)sized or even a small sized kite, like 5-6-7m2, for 15m high jumps
A bit off the topic maybe - but how come the term "15m" is used about a "15m2" kite ?
Is this only in US, or ?
Very confusing IMO
Or simply lazyness, easier to say "fifteen meter" than "fifteen squaremeter" ?
We got the same erroneously term here in Denmark, regarding windspeed, where many use a wrong and completely reversed unit because it is easier and more "smart" to say
PS: Sorry, I am "damaged", being an engineer, I know...
i'd like to fly the 15m edge and compare that to the speed. the speed certainly out floats the 13m edge by a factor of 2 to 1. so i suspect it would also outfloat the 15m edge.... but it would make a worthy comparison.Brock Landers wrote:For what it's worth...I also ride Ozone Edge kites. I have an 11M and a 15M 2012 Edge. The 15M boost and float is stupid sick. The float on the 15M is incredibly long compared to my 11M Edge.
I have flown Cabrinha Xbows, North Evos, and Liquid Force Envys so those are the only kites I can compare the Edge to. The Edge out boosts and out floats them all. Not my personal opinion...it just flat out does.
