thanks all. after much deliberation and consideration of the comments i went with the mr green, smoke & boss. i should be good with mr green up to 35kts and times above that are prob few and far between. As i head slowly towards more wave riding i figure the 9 will be better
than the punch. with the boss getting me out in as little wind as i care to kite in.
looking fwd to a couple of seasons in the rabbit gang.

typical, i bought them today and the wind never arrived. grrrrr. thanks.

Hi guys, don't know what kind of wind you're having, but i had so much fun with smoke in 30-33 knts.. Not so funny when the gust hit 40 though..oh, and i'm 75 kilos. :think:

Gypsy is a sweet kite, but in the lower 30's i prefer the smoke and fly :peace:

I m with Mc8 - I can comfortably ride my smoke in 30kts. Always got the Gypsy for when it's properly humping though... That is one well behaved kite when the wind is blowing
