North Rebel 6m top end and wind range

Postby sonny2727 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 10:37 am

Hi guys,
Thinking about getting Rebel 6m or similar kite for high wind, 75kg intermediate. What's the actual wind range of these kites with a TT? Im thinking this size would suit 25-35 knot range with handling occasional gusts up to 40 kts.
What other kites should I consider? I know some kites are better at the top end and gust handling
Thanks

I see that you already have Ozone. I've got a 6m Enduro V2 (not for sale!) which so far I've used once - will certainly handle 35 knots. (81kg/138x41 TT/old bloke).
