10m slingshot turbine 2017

Postby super_padge » Mon Sep 19, 2016 9:27 pm

Hi

Has anyone flown the smaller turbines yet? I'm thinking of ordering a 10m and hoping it'll be a boosty airstyle kite.

Any reviews or info?

Old post...
I tried an 11 meter turbine a several months ago. Was floaty but sooo slow. Did you ever get one?

I Will soon be in the market for a big kite and haven’t flown the rally yet. Anyone have a comparison between a 14m Rally vs 15m turbine? Is it much faster? Boosting?

Use to fast kites that loop easy. Hard to adust to a slow kite. Broke leg on a fast and powered unhooked trick. Now considering to focus on low impact. Wont know what I'm up for until walking again in 2 months. Any recommendations for a big kite with speed?

sorry to hear, wishing you a speedy recovery.

I can only give you the advice that the slower the kite the more you will advance.
Can also be tuned by settings, bars sizes and line lengths.

You need to find your kite. Try if you can. Everyone is different, so hard to recommend anything.
