I got to ride the nytro v3 for the first time.
I have no affiliation . the Price was good and I gave it a try.
wind was flukey from 15 to 25.
I weigh 68 kg.
ride since 2006.
134 x 34 board
22 m lines
45cm bar switch v1 bar
Construction is top notch!
turning: what i like the most is that the power thru the turns are smooth and constant.
much different from my 9m bow that has a delay built into it.
the kite is considered médium turning speed but i consider it fast for my taste .
kite drifts very well when depowered and very stable.
feedback on the lines is good,and it lets you know where the kite is all the time without looking.
kite tended to backstall on 15 knots.
this kite shines on upwind 18 knots and up an its a rocket.
Gave 2 jumps one i droped like a rock due to lull and the other i floated nice.
floaty ellevation not jerky like a c.
overall very nice kite!!
1 hour test.

Got to ride another sesión.
90 minutes.
18 to 22 Knots gusting to 25 with 27 meter lines
55 cms bar
134 x 34 board
hot wind in a lake.
dedicated this sesión to jumps and hooked kiteloops.
Got the timming right on the kite and trimming is most important.
Kite picks speed very fast.
awesome for sending the kite fast and geting air.
In Kiteloops i find it a fast looping kite.
you give it a fast tug on the sterring and the kite spins almost on its axis.
its funny feeling compared to my previous 9m that it took about a second to respond.
the loop is smooth and kite is very managable.
i sure dont megaloop but its nice to feel control when doing a kiteloop.
kite has enough pull (feedback on bar)to tell you exactly where it is no need to look.
i guess thats the no pulley thing. first time for me.
found the bar to get a Little heavier on the gusts.
at the end of the sesión i was elbow and arm tired but maybe i was holding on to the bar to agresive due to jumps and kiteloop.
will see on next sessions on the sea
4:thumb: out of five.

Yes like all kites of this nature, I found it to fly a lot on the front lines. While the bar pressure is meduim (spot on for feedback), to turn it does take more input. Once initiated though a quick looping kite. Saw a local here going very big the other day (we were egging him on as he was last out on the water and the wind had kicked up a fair bit... Good fun). Yeh it's got some power under the hood, flies as I said on the front lines a fair bit, but you wanna go big and not be on a race kite (or a loaded fifth aka the rebel) with four lines and some C in it, this is what you have to deal with. Decent kite in this genre hey.

yesterday i had the coolest sesión ever!!
i hooked 8m with 27 meter line and 55 cms bar.
wind was 15 knots fluking to 13knots.
best low end ive ever had on a small kite.
i could go upwind after kitelooping the kite to get speed
but most of the time i hold ground.
my buddie was riding a 12m cabrinha and couldnt believe i was on the 8m.
Awesome low end! :thumb:
great job switch!
the only bad thing was that i couldnt relauch it with so little wind.
