Hi Dave,davesails7 wrote:Edge, 2012 dyno and dyno ltd were disappointments. 2011 dyno was great and i hear the 2013 was a return to greatness.
I had the LTD for a while, but luckily held on to my 2011 18m dyno. Sold the LTD and riding the 2011.
I do want to try the 19m edge, but havent gotten a chance yet. Hoping that the market is flooded with used 19m with the racers moving to the ozone chrono and generally smaller kites for foiling
I don't think the market will be flooded with 19s as they are keepers..... Im sure they will be like rocking horse doo doo. Have a crack on one and you will see why . I bet the Chrono is an awesome kite but at least you know a 19 will float till the wind pics up again. I've not needed to relaunch her yet luckily, but I read they relaunch surprisingly well. I know relaunch ing in light wind can be hit or miss, but I would prefer the cards in my favour ie it will float.
Incidentally my mate caught a wing tip of his 21 shortly after.... Well that baby got caught in the out going tide.... Well lets just say that was the biggest wet duvet cover that crashed into a fishing net you have ever seen.... Got filled full of silt to boot.... Took three of us to get it back on the beach...... That was one wet muddy pig.
Other than yeah not a bad kite.
I must admit the Ltd was a lot better than the 2012 Had good low end grunt but went all silly when the wind picked up. I was questioning myself selling it and could not make my mind up to go for a 17 edge or 19. In the end I thought it's for light wind so don't mess about go 19. My concern was being over powered when it picked up but that has never been the case.
I know foils don't need as big a kite to work but we all know the feeling of being at the beach wishing you had a bigger kite on a light wind day. You lucky guys weighing 75kg can get away with smaller kites, but us more meaty bods still need enough pull to get out of the water !!!
