Re: How much are old kites holding me back?!

The Pansh I just took delivery of is no Cayenne but fits OP's budget. I think I'd prefer to fly my old Psycho 2! But maybe I'm remembering the fun times that kite brought me with rose colored glasses. I still keep an F-Arc for on occasional trip down memory lane. I will have it long after the Pansh...

Re: How much are old kites holding me back?!

One thing that people have failed to mention is safety. The voodoo and psycho II have back line safety, which is less than ideal for high wind emergencies - particularly if you have little room to land. If you decide to stick with them or buy speed II, I suggest adding a 5th line yourself. I would ...

Re: How much are old kites holding me back?!

Thanks all this is great info and recommendations for me to look into and research.

Turns like a truck....too true! Definitely true of the Psycho 2 17m I sold a little while ago. Got some ok money for it (£150).

Re: How much are old kites holding me back?!

Cheers blackrat, I suspect mine to Speed 3 would feel like jumping into a Porsche....jumping to a FS5 would be like getting into a spaceship lol.

Will get in touch with some of the local people and see if anyone has anything similar I can try.

Cheers

Re: How much are old kites holding me back?!

Having seen some of the prices for ‘new’ kites I’m definitely and happily in the second hand market! :)

Now if anyone has a psycho 4 or a speed 3 and is vaguely close in Devon, UK for me to try (for beer tokens of course) that would be awesome!

Re: How much are old kites holding me back?!

Lol cheers, I'll take a look at a 'tuning' and see where/how much that would be.

Yeah, I've been out probably once or twice each year just not great sessions, nice big board needed and decent practice time.

Re: How much are old kites holding me back?!

Cheers for the tips, much appreciated. Always liked foils so guess if there's a straightforward way to stay with them then great. If not then happy to look at the others. All down to getting maximum kite for the money and ideally needing the fewest kites to cover the widest wing range. I'm probably ...

Re: How much are old kites holding me back?!

Thanks Andrewjohn. Any suggestions on what's achievable within my budget and what difference I'll see? I'm guessing from what you've written the fundamental difference is i'll get more riding time on more days due to the greater range/flexibility of a newer kite. I was thinking of trying to get hold...

How much are old kites holding me back?!

HI all, Looking at getting back on the water this year after not getting out hardly at all for the last few years. My kites are a little old but work fine. 2004 Flysurfer Voodoo 10m 2006/7 (maybe?) Flysurfer Psycho 2 13m I'm interested to know how much benefit I'd get from upgrading to something sli...
