One of the local cats has the Infinity....Just the other day there was three of us out. Me on 2012 Dyno 15 with 24m lines and race board (north Ltd 69 2012) staying up wind but struggling to go down wind on plane, My friend on my old Dyno 16 on 32m lines mowing the lawn with a 138/46 nobile. And then the Infinity and twin tip, I am not sure the line length or how big his board was. It was survial light wind kiting with both twin tip riders usoing all of their flying skills to just keep the kite in the air.

This is the first time I have seen the infinity in this light of wind, and compared to other big kites I have seen it was doing very well, considering the idea of the kite is to be more playful, I think it proforms well enough that it will make anyrider happy in lighter winds, You dont have to beleave the low end that anyone claims, But if any kite can get you out riding sooner in light wind areas then it is a great kite and if it is in your hands and making you smile then it is the best light wind kite...

Thank you very much for your input and honesty Mr.Billy B.
Do you know if it was the v1 or v2 version of the INFINITY? Because the v2 performs better in lighter winds then the v1 and also comes with 22 meter lines + 5 meters extra in the bag for heavier riders for more power in lighter wind.

On another note, this is a video of the INFINITY v3 prototype being tested in very very very... light wind conditions.
Now it is up to you to decide what you think about the INFINITY V3 light wind machine.

:thumb: Thanks Billy B. Now wait until you see the new v3 INFINITY kite.
Again this v3 is a prototype and won't be release for a while. Need to do more testing in higher winds (20 to 40 +++knots) Hurricane Sandy will be a good test for that.
