Instinct Sport 2 13m2: does it have excellent low end?

Postby cabron » Mon Jul 28, 2008 11:43 am

Looking for a good unhooked kite that will start to perform in low winds. Does the 2008 Instinct Sport 2 13m2 fit the bill?

I'm comparing Instinct to Naish Torch 14m2 2008 and I would like to have a bit more lowend and thought the Insinct might have it do to flatter shape?

And are you able to create with Instinct a point by edging and releasing so that the kite doesn't pull that much like with C-kites?

Thanks!

I use the Sport II 13m and a Skimboard when its to light. I get going before any locals do on that combo. Im guessing I need about 14 knots just to get the unhooked riding it to work though (im not that good at it), maybe less if its flat - but it never is. Im 83kg and use a FLX32 board.
The few remaining C-riders on beaches where Im at are on16 when I need the 13.
