More suggestive/conspiratorial bullshit.

“Looooooook at my kite!!! Comfort meeeeeeee!!”

To me I think it is interesting weight of kites does anybody have those numbers? I guess I dont want tooo light or the heaviest, I imagine Core might be on the lighter side. I ride North imagine its not the heaviest but for sure nowhere near the lightest. Is a fine line performance/weight?? Not here to rank on any kites guess its up to you weight or longevity or am I way off?

In general the lighter the construction (eg the thinner the materials used) the more fragile an object becomes; Young's modulus perhaps.

@JBrook: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2392616
Failures in crashes on water can be sewing/construction issues like misplaced bar tacks or lack of reinforcing. Prior damage or wear and tear are also a factor. 'Tomahawks' cause canopy tears along the center strut. 'Whiplash' crashes when the kite hits at an angle cause tears along wingtip struts or other failures.
