Best GP 11m ?

Postby Blindjudge3 » Sun Jul 06, 2014 3:06 pm

Hi guys , I have my eye on the 11m gp, has anybody out there got any input on this kite , I already have the 7 and 9 and am hoping to use the 11m for lighter winds.
I just want to know what you all think?
Cheers

I think if you have the 9 and 7 you probably know more than most

Yes if you have the 7 and 9, it´s the same but slightly slower. Have had all the sizes in that kite, and the 11 is a nice size.

Sweet thanks is there much of a difference in the low end, I'm pretty light and did get away with the 9 before I started riding boots so was just hoping I'll get away with this opposed to a 13m

The 11m is my favorite size. Faster than the 13m, but the unhooking ability is off the charts. I work for Best so I'm biased :D

With C-kites it's super important to space them closely together when you build out your quiver. Jumping from a 9m to a 13m isn't recommended. Trimming the depower is a huge no-no, you lose out on the performance and steering, which is the reason you're riding a C-kite in the first place. Definitely hit me up if you have any additional questions, more than happy to help!
