Ozone Reo v3 vs 2014 model

Postby petato2 » Mon Nov 05, 2018 3:38 pm

Hi all,

I am looking for a 12m second hand Reo.

Dont plan to expend too much as 12m is the kite I use less, just a few days during summer (plus I have three mouths to feed at home...)

I got an offer for a 2014 model, and another one for a v3 wich is 200€ more expensive. Both just kites without bar.

Assuming both are in good conditions, my question is

Are there significant differences between the two models? Performance, fly, materials used....

Apreciatte the feedback from those who know both models.

Thanks all

Bernardo

Hola Bernardo,

Yes I had V3 and the difference with V4 is huge to my findings

The V4 is much smoother and more stable, some might think the V3 is more direct, but the V4 is as direct but much smoother on the bar, ad less barpressure

I have flown 12 9 7 5 in v3 for 2 seasons, and the same range V4 now..if the difference in price is not too high and you can afford it, go for the V4 in any case!!

I am selling my V4 12 9 7 for the V5 range, I flew the V5 and honestly there is not a lot of difference except the possibility to change the angle of the kite with the bridle? But got a good deal for the V5 :wink:

Hope this helps a bit

Cheers
dude :cool2:
