Re: Slingshot RPM 10m 2012 (missing parts)

I may have them, certainly have the pigtails, I'd need to see the yellow labels enlarged on the bridles. I've got lots of wing tip bridles mainly from Rallys, but they are all composites of different lengths, sp lets have a magnified look at the yellow label or check my website to see if they are on...

Re: Have lei kites gotten any better in the last 6 years?

I still ride 2011-2013 kites and have not demoed any kites that I thought out out performed mine. The only characteristics that have been improved are in the light wind department. That's the boat I'm in now. My 2012 kites are getting real thin. The new stuff doesn't feel any better to me. Nor do I...

Re: Have lei kites gotten any better in the last 6 years?

You need to try a few more then, and with my salesman's hat on I'd point you at a GTS or XR series from Core, there's many a surprised Ozone rider not believing that there could be such an improvement. No core kites at my local to test. But I'd have to test 2012 core compared to 2018 core. This is ...

Re: Have lei kites gotten any better in the last 6 years?

In my daydreaming and pencil on back of serviette scribblings I've often pondered on a sort of twin skin foil lei hybrid, to give the foil platform more protection against wind sheer and shifts. Probably be a bit too expensive for mainstream use but could possibly find favour in race foiling.

Re: Have lei kites gotten any better in the last 6 years?

Better at What? They change according to what the individual brand decides a particular style is aimed at, then in theory they get better at that role. So, we now have wave kites that drift better and steer with slack lines. Other kite styles jump better as can be witnessed by some of the record hei...

Re: How to ruin your vacation with Core

Hi after reading the posts on this subject I have to admit I am a bit worried now. First of all, I do not have an informed opinion on Core! A few times a year I do smash my kite (another brand) on the water and while it is evident I try to avoid this from happening I thought that the risk of damagi...
