F-One Bandit 6 10m or 9m

Postby luca » Wed Nov 21, 2012 9:52 pm

What size do you prefer? The 9m or the 10m?

I am having a 7m notus and want to add a 9 or 10. My bigger sized kites are 12 and 17. I like riding with 74 kilos in 16-25 knots. Looping, freestyle, big jumps.

some dealer say, the 9m is the best kite, because the team developes first the 9 and so it is better than the 10. Ist the 10 more lightwind or highwind orientated.

I weight 75KG and ride on Trax 134X40.
I rode both sizes, and I think that the both sizes are very successful this year!
For big air and old school i suggest the 10 size.
For tricks, new school the 9 will be more suitable.

I have to agree with Wave_Ride.

Something you should know- even though the 9m is the first to be developed (not sure this is true anymore) Fone still produces a lot more prototypes for each size than many other companies do for their primar size.

I have the 10m B6 and its a great kite.
It's also my biggest kite, since you have a 12, I would suggest the 9m.
I had a 9m B5 and it was an epic kite in the 16-25knot range, the B6 is similar but smoother.

I ride a surfboard primarily, so have a 10/7m B6 combo, with a 8m REO in there just for fun also. :thumb:
