Agree with mike birt, they have totally changed my paradigm on kiting in general, and kite type and size selection. They will I think have huge impact on your entire quiver design once you get on one. Wow.
... this is what I said on another thread, these boards were the next leap forward in kite (and board) design. When I first read Darren Marshalls review of the V1 sector a couple of years ago, he was sooooooo onto something!
You were right Robbie. We tend to focus on the light wind ability of these but they serve so much more I have found. Like the other day, put a small kite up as was a cranking winter thing, then she dropped out enough to have to change kites, but no, just come into shore, swap on the sector have some fun, watch the front a coming, then as the wind rise again, swap boards. And the lulls would still be considered a decent wind.... 20 knots, but no probs on the smaller kite. So they are not just there to get you out on a bees fart, they do soooo much more. I have also been able to have a 4m diff between my smaller two kites the sector bridges the gap.
... the funny thing is you should re-visit some of your old kites now and see how they perform while using the Sector, its like a bit of an equalizer and evens out some of the things you didn't quite like about a certain kite. For example, I wasn't overly in love with my Core 17m kite, but after using it with the sector I really liked it as the Core turns really nice and quick where as my Dyno 18m is slower and I couldn't squeeze the fast turns out of it like I could with the Core. The Core made the Sector really fun in small surf.
Anyway, just a little observation I found.
