Review for Genetrix Hydra V3 2008 12m
Times tested: 6-10
Range: 8kn to 25kn
Good: Exceptional height and hang,very wide wind range, heaps of depower, has no pulleys, good relaunch, easy to self launch and land, one of the flatest kites on the market, bar feel can be changed by tweaking the bridals.
Bad: May turn a tad slow for some kiters, perfect for me, but apparently can be changed on bridals. Also stuffs up social/family life the result of a renewed kiting addiction!!
Review: The 2008 hydra V3 is one of the sweetest kites I have used. I have used it from 8-25 knts. without having to pull on any depower strap. The wind range is outstanding. It seems like the top end will be the same as my 8m sonic,about 30 knts,for my 65kg, but I haven,t tested that yet. My mate (80kg) used his 12m in 35kns and was comfortable, This kite might just be a 1 kite quiver for me. I was using it in 10-14 knts today and was pulling 4-5m jumps with good hang (was solid wind).
