There are two reasons why we have not gotten to test these foils. First they are both in very limited supply, and two is that they are very expensive even for a retailer like me.The Captain wrote:Well gentlemen reviewers,
Fine work. I genuinely appreciate your efforts. I doubt many would bother giving the time required for this.
I know you said you wouldn't, but with the release of the Chrono, I would really like to read about you learning the few unique foil flying techniques (earlier comments lead me to believe you are not experienced with foils, or read too much PMU) and getting out to review the Ozone Chrono and Flysurfer Speed 4. 18m for both. It is a light wind kite review, but getting a 21m would make an uneven comparison to the other inflatables you have tested, at least in low end, and especially between the Chrono and the Speed 4. Maybe even the 15 meters? I am sure you could get your hands on some for demos....(you reading this Ted B?)
Don't take this post as a foil pimp...I do fly them, and love their pluses and accept their minuses (as we all do with every kite), but I genuinely and really would like to hear what you and your crew of testers have to say, assuming you keep an open mind (in consideration of your explanation as to why you would not review a foil, which was bogus, IMHO )
Anyone like to see this happen?
On the contrary, I would like to see some relatively new foil flyers try them next to their LEI counterparts. I would like to see this crew of testers take the time to learn the few little things they should know, and then provide more of the same honest and open minded opinions. I have to believe none of them would have an interest in proving anything either way for any of the tested kites.loco4viento wrote: ...
The most important part of the testing (in my opinion) would be to make sure that the testers are actually people who are very well acquainted with foils. People who understand them and are experienced with them. And not people who have an interest in proving their inferiority.
