Re: Casualty in Sicily

The thing about squalls is that the most dangerous place to be when they hit is near land so getting off the water when you see one approaching can be more dangerous than just going out to open water with nothing downwind. It wasn't a squall but one time when I was out on my 10m and the winds picke...

If the wind is howling gusty, temp is down and things look crazy, a spliff puts me on edge as far as organizing my lines and and not fucking up my drift launch. For me, the ganja is best after the session.

Same here, kiting is a better high anyways...

Yeah, sounds good. Only the turning speed might be too quick for me.
It does not turn fast. It has good hang time and lets you down very gently. Lots of low end grunt. It flies forward in the window once you really get moving.

Sound like a Rebel or Edge.

Re: Prodigy??

I'm not a fan of the 12m flite and vs the 12m prodigy I'd prefer the prodigy... the flite doesn't handle the gusty conditions as well as the prodigy.. I've come off the water to switch down to my 7m after hanging onto the 12m.. so lots of wind range! having the other 7/9.5 and now the 12m prodigy i...

Re: Prodigy??

It's a good plan, matth. That 9.5 is probably one of my favorite kites I've ever flown. So fun to throw it around and it's forgiving if you goof. I had an 8 Flite and loved it, but just like BillyKP was saying, you better mind your manners. The 12 Prodigy will eat the gusts much better. The 9.5 is ...

Re: Prodigy??

Prodigy: make a mistake and its forgiving.... Flite: make a mistake and it will spank you hard I have a 12m flite and really like except in gusty overpowered conditions. I was thinking of getting the Prodigy 12M for the gusty days and using the flite for more steady days with lower wind average..
