What does he mean with easier?
What is the top end and low end of the 19, compared to Dyno 18?
... what I mean by 'easier' is both the bar pressure and steering pressure is lighter than the 18m.
Tony said that the bottom end is the same as the 18m but has a little less static pull when parked at lower board speeds, but once the apparent wind picks up as your board picks up speed, they are the same. He hasn't been tempted to jump on his Sector yet due to low winds, always riding his TT (Nobile NHP 134 x 42) in 9 or so knots.
He also says the top end is much better on the 19m, he reckons the old 18m would stop being fun at 18 knots but the 19m can easily be taken to 22 or 23 knots (tropical winds btw) before you need to push hard on the edge of your board and go into survival mode.
The 19m is his go to kite for our usual winds we have here and prefers it over the 17m now saying the top end is just about the same but a lot better hang time. If you can handle the Dyno in strong winds your definetely going to handle this one with ease.
Toby, I hope you get to try it, would like to hear what you think.
edit: here is Tony's review he put up on seabreeze: http://www.seabreeze.com.au/forums/Kite ... /Edge-19M/
