7m 2013 edge vs 2016 6m park hd

Postby kjorn » Tue Dec 19, 2017 11:32 pm

Hi, I have the opportunity to buy one of the mentioned kites. I'm keen on big air, hooked in tricks.

I switch between straps and boots. I ride in UK super gusty storm conditions. Currently ride an 8m Torch and get about 12-13m height. Looking to go bigger, not sure if a 6m will be big enough to get high... if I'm blown off the water on my 8m it's usually too much and we all get out.

My friend has a 2017 edge and complains that the tips collapse when loading for a jump. I've never seen a Park HD, but I hear good things.

Cheeeers :)

mate, 6 m is way to small , i have one .
Park HD is awesome kite ( new Dash is even better ) , i would recommend 8 m , unless you kite in 40k + .
I had Torch , good booster but HD is better .
Im considering XR5 for best boosting, seems like high aspect delta kites go bigger

That's what I figured, but I wanted to check with someone who actually knows. The torch has an almost limitless upper end, but man, when it's gusty, fuuuuck, it dances around the sky so much. It's scary.

I'd love a go on the XR5, but they are too expensive for me at the moment.
