Hi Blake;Blake wrote:Dom,
I have a 9.5 that I haven't flown yet, bought it for the girlfriend to teach her on. Thing is, I was just down in Hatteras and talked to an instructor from Kittyhawk Kites and he said the Prodigy overflies like crazy and he doesn't like it at all for teaching. I would like to know before I fly this one, or end up selling it as a new, never flown kite, so what gives?
This I totally agree with Zig Zag - the Prodigy is emerging as one of the kites out there that lets you worry about footwork - or sea state (that's a good point you make) while the kite trucks along.zig zag wrote: I've flown my 7m in 30+ gusting to over 40knots in wicked conditions on the rugged west coast of Canada's Vancouver Island (OR's hometown) and I was more concerned about the sea state then what the kite was doing! These conditions are considered for advanced/intermediate riders only but the Prodigy made it easy for me to get out there after only half a year kiteboarding!
After flying the Prodigy for a while I had a chance to ride a Razor again and I didn't find it to be an easy ride! It was fun but something that would make me pretty tired after 2 hours of being yanked around.
Get a Prodigy and start taking'er easy eh!! Its still boosts great and floats just as well as a Razor
I've seen one review from TKB Magazine that said it had average jumping performance, they also said that it didn't have a sliding stopper when the photo they posted on their website actually shows the sliding stopper...which is fitted to all of our bars 2011 onwards, and is the only one that you can actually adjust the tension of. So make of that review what you will...Kamikuza wrote:How's the Prodigy jump? Especially compared to the Razor?
The reviews I've seen say "average jumping performance"... and I want to fly my Crossbows are pretty good when the wind is up!
