they are getting old,
im starting to get into wave riding
finding the 11m is sometimes too much bar pressure for 1 hand and gives me tennis elbow.
i have flown the Wainman 12m and it was fine with one hand.
bandits i feel pulling me off the waves more compared to the few times out on the Wainman (probably my poor skills)
i think i could probably cover the same wind range with the 7.5 and 10.5 Wainmans with both a TT and surfboard as much as i did on the bandits on just a TT. love the carrot bar but feel the bandits are a bit more responsive. undecided.....
would love to hear opinions from people who have flown both and how the new bandits compare to the old ones?
thrown i ur 2c please
Comparing a 3 year old kite to a new one isn't right... but the wainmans are great kites and they are on the top of my list as well.yzbob wrote:i decided to change brands. haven't got the opportunity to try the new F-ones and was out on a wainman again today. i just find them a bit easier to do stuff on a twin tip, they definitely had the edge in the waves and the bars are worlds apart. sad to say goodbye to the bandits but onwards and upwards hopefully.
thanks guys. some good feedback in helping decide.
