North Vegas 14m

Postby Kitemare123 » Thu May 17, 2012 5:00 pm

Hi there

Summer is coming around and I just saw a great deal on a 2011 14m Vegas.

What do you reckon the low end would be on that bad boy?

What would relaunch be like? Its got to be one of the best options for light wind un-hooking right? But I drop the kite a lot and need to be able to get it flying again fast...what do you think?

Fast enough for kiteloop passes?

'would' implies uncertainty.. The correct answer is always:

Andres said he knew you'd ask that question. He left his response under your pillow after turning your bed. Also, check your fridge. He left you a tasty but healthy sandwich, he's worried you're not eating enough these days.

It's not a low wind kite...

You'll probably get as much bottom out of a 12m and be able to ride that one over a much wider range.

I know some people love their 14m's though so try it and see....
