I just was out on the 11m edge V9. It was 14-17 knots and the kite felt very vague. Probably because i was super under powered. Nevertheless. Tomorrows forecast is 32-42. Goody! Question, i was watching Gunnar set up his V9 and noticed that he connected to the last pigtail (See photo). What is the benefit to that. Is that the lightwind pigtail? I was riding on medium pigtail like i have my Enduros. Tone, Fat Blokes Can Fly, The Russia, Gunnar....any feedback?

Thanks!
I prefer to fly the Edge on that setting for Oldschool as I want the sweet spot to be higher up on the depower throw.

2 small loops.
Send it high and loop early to get the punch forward and up.

Recently I did an accurate "bridle check" of my 10 meter V9 Edge (see the bridle check table on the Ozone website) All the bridle lengths A1 to A5 have to be measurd from the LE instead of from the attachment knots. (which I did initially) The bridle lengths were all exactly as specified, except for 1 noticable difference on one of the "inner bridle lengths" (Al1, Al2 or Al3). One of these was 10 mm off, but it was exactly 10 mm off on both sides, so I reckon it's ok?

Got perfect condition last week. 24gusting to 38 knots. 1-1.5m kickers with super flat water in-between. Felt like I could take more wind with no problem. Only made one big loop. Got more than I asked for so I sticked with boosting. Ended up with 18m, 19.1 and 21.6m high jumps according to my Woo.
Got to love this kite😁!

Yesterday I finally had the chance to test my brand new V9 13m in decent conditions, 15-20 knots with lulls to 10 or so, I,m 90 kg, board Shinn Ronson 138.

The biggest improvement in the V9 ( I had V8 before) is the stability. You can boost to the moon and you are total confident that you will land like a feather, no LE bending and no surging in the WW no matter if gusts hit or not, something I have never felt with the previous version, when needed to not sheet in too hard or you got dropped like a rock, and more likely to hindenburg in gusts.

Totally worth the upgrade.
