Review for North Vegas06 2006 9.0

Times tested: 11+
Range: 15kn to ??kn
Good: Stable, Depower, Low End

Bad: Not sure ;)

Review: Ok this is the Kite with the biggest usable range I ever used. Ite gets me going upwind without working at about 15 knots on the Jaime M and I still feel comfortable on it at wind gusting to 35 knots.

So from 15 to 19 Knots I use it to learn any new tricks I am after. from 20 to 25 Knots I use it for more powerful unhooked stuff and after that I just boost high and long. ;)

Great for anything I want.

Downsides: Its almost too fast for kiteloops and the "fast slow" settings don't do anything usefull at all. They should label them "Great Medium Horrible" instead of "Fast Medium Slow".
The Lift really doesn't kick in until about 25 Knots, so if you are only interrested in jumping high and long, you might not find this kite very special until upper 20s.

But if you are also into trying unhooked stuff, then this is the kite for you. Unhooked this is the kite I felt most comfortable with.
