If this guy rides edges in these winds then I can assure you one he is no noob and two he could out edge you my friend. The edge kites demands this like no other kite. Edge or you die!
Noob, ....mate where do you get off!! Lets see you take the edge out in those winds, go on I dare you smart ass.
Even in these winds the bar pressure is light ( and by the way the reason we take them out in these winds is unlike other kites, this kite gets better and better towards its top end, its called superior aerodynamics).
That is what the topic is about. High aspect kite like the edge has light bar pressure and needn't be sined as much as it builds incredible apparent wind and can be lock off and loaded with one down stroke....oh yeh then you have to really, really edge. Never used one have ya mate!
Of course the guys not a noob and can edge, you werent born yesterday were you
and I take it that you are also saying that Ozone have bullshitted in saying the Edge has a huge depower...and then also said it demands to be edged or die
Unlike the Fuels or Torches which of course you learn all about real edging
but dont die - just learn high wind skills like everyone else - its pretty normal
Oh and the Edges are the only High aspect kite ever built - well I'll be damned, a few years ago they could do barely more than stay up in the air on 5 lines let alone 'turn' of which they still dont do very well - when other high aspect ratio kites
with light bar pressure were blasting past and looping !!!
Do your homework and also ask about early Torch depower/edgeing
Like I said - change down, use a stopper, the bar pressure becomes less with more useable 'full power' and less pull in gusts with obviously less edging pressure. I use the stopper after every transition then release for jumps...
Oh yeah I have no experience with a Variety of hybrids and c kites and wave kites over the years to actually know why I wrote the above sentence...
P.s if the Edge is so fast - why hasnt it won any speed comps, Oh it must be cause the leading edge - is as big as Yo Mamas Butt
ha ha just kidding
