I get what you are saying... I didn't research all the stock lengths now, but I assume most of them come with 27m?OceanAdventures wrote:
We have decided to fly the kites with their own bars, so it would be a fair comparison on how the customer would get the kite. Some bars are longer, some are shorter. We want to give you the best test as if you would have the kite in your own hands. If we flew them all on 27m lines but when you buy them they only have 24m lines, that may change the way that person see's the kite.
If they come with line extensions we will use them, but we are going to assume that the guys paid to design the kites are giving us the best setup for their particular kite.
You are talking about Core who designs 3 fast turning LW specific kites in their line upOceanAdventures wrote: I'm not testing for the best 17m kite, I'm testing for the best light wind kite. And logic will tell me if their 17m kite was the better light wind kite, they wouldn't have made a 19m... But I have been wrong before.
I agree...below 8kn...at 7kn steady wind..at my weight 75kg..and i have lots of LW experience.....markymarc wrote:It is proven in various tests that no kite will make you riding below 8 knots....
So forget about the 6-7 knot range..
See various LW test in e.g. the German kite mags.
The FS 21m flies at 7 knots, the others start with 8....
I have never seen a 6kn wind ........remain steady all day longHawaiis wrote:65 kg, 17m Ozone Edge, hydrofoil board 6 knots all day long
