Re: Naish Repair Hack

I was always under the impression the issue with the Naish inflation system was simply that it makes repairing a strut or leading edge bladder more difficult. After seeing the OP's photo it looks pretty simple to me as to how it comes apart and goes back together. Not talking about the merits of the...

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

@ Sendit, in what way does the Flite change your light wind riding? By being faster, lighter bar pressure and thus more fun?

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

Don't forget, 2012 Rally's were 3 strut. My experience is with the current 5 strut 14m and it's definitely not a light wind kite.

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

I think you make a fair point about SS being true to size vs some brands. Switch use to list the actual size, I wish this was mandatory! Single rip stop is lighter but it's minimal vs 2x. 4x actually becomes a factor but designers have stated they're able to make up for it by using less Dacron.

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

Surprised the Rally 14m would fly in less, that's a very heavy kite.

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

How heavy is bar pressure on big Turbines? Noting bad but I had Pivot rider note that Slingshot bar pressure is heavier than his. Another appropriate question would be - how good the depower is on Turbines and I can tell that you don't want to be overpowered on one, especially on small sizes. They'...
