Re: Review F-one Bandit 9m (10th edition)

Dave, I went from V8 to V10 and noticed a big improvement in the way the kite performed in terms of reducing the sideways pull when jumping. V10 sends you vertical & has better hang time and upwind ability. Also V10 feels more solid and does not flutter as did V8. Has the squarer tips on the V10 mad...

Re: Favourite Foot Straps & Pads Combination

I have got the Sneaker SRS ratchet foot straps on my Sinn Ronson and together with the pads I think they are brilliant. My foot size is a 9UK (43 - 44) and I wear T3 Atan boots. For the first time ever I have the correct foot pressure due to the incredible micro click adjustments, which means a cons...

Re: WMFG Pump 2.0T

I'm already really satisfied with the previous version WMFG pump (except for the stiff hose which is kinda annoying). This new version has some great improvements though! Just pumped up my kites with the new pump. The new flexible hose was great I didn’t need to pre-twist it, no pop off’s and the s...

Harnesses – new tightening system?

Year after year the harness manufacturers bring us their latest ergonomically designed miracles but with the same old inefficient strap and buckle system. Half the ergonomic benefits are lost because we can’t micro tighten the harness when sailing. In my opinion SP Boarding has transformed foot stra...

Re: Shinn Ronson review

Thanks for the info Ian, very interesting. By coincidence I also have Atan 3mm boots* (round toe) which look identical to yours but I think are size 10-1/2 (45) or 11 (46), and I just can not get them into the straps properly. :-( Are you on the UK south coast? I'm in Chichester. * On the back of t...

Re: Shinn Ronson review

John - my feet are size 9 uk(43 EU) understand the straps are good for sizes 7 (41.5) to 11 (46). Boots are Atan Mistral 3mm not split toe. I am delighted with mine as I said I wish waist harnesses had the same system.

Re: Shinn Ronson test

I really like the (ratchet) Sneaker SRS-1 with bare feet but when it got cold earlier this month and I had to wear 3mm wetsuit boots I just could not get my feet into them properly (I tried for 5 sessions). I have EU 45, UK 10-1/2 size feet. I now have the Apex straps because I can (just) get my fe...

F-one Bandit 10 V's 8 review

Conditions wind 16-18 mph, kite 12m steering lines set to outer position away from LE. Bandit 12m (10 series) versus 8 series - When you jump It wants to pull you vertically up with minimal sideways drift but doesn’t overfly and gives gentle landings. So IMO the hang time is massively increased from...

Shinn Ronson review

Me - 75 kg freerider, hooked in. Conditions:- wind 16-18 mph mushy waves typical south coast conditions The Ronson 136X41 cm – underfoot the board feels so much smaller, lighter and more nimble than the size suggests. Frisky/skatey/fast with great acceleration but always in control. The stand out at...
