Great video analysis of why I've recommended updating to the last version of woo to increase jump heights.

Why their not put also on board piq sensor, if their did big job to compare in such great angles and videos woo 2 and 3, than can also add piq and will be all much clear regarding most true jump sensor model. Anyway, now its clear that woo 3 usually adds 8 percents in height:) now its clear why pro selling woo3 an

Cost analysis- its more economical to upgrade to the newest version of woo than invest in kites, boards and time on water improving technique to jump higher. Forbes report.

Local lads do this, PIQ and Woo 3 very similar results.

Getting a new board soon. Strongly considering not putting PiQ mount onto it. I just feel that the jump measurements are inaccurate and I am getting too worried about height thus not being in the moment and just enjoying the session.

Not fair, Woo3 has to be compared with PIQ 3 :)

Anyhow 70% inaccuracy in some cases? Never got one never will.

A local guy did 2 sessions (on separate days) running Woo 2.0 and woo 3.0 on the same board.
He got 13.4 vs 13.4 on his most recent session and 10.6vs 10.7 a week ago (those are in meters, of course)
If you have woo app, you can look up his sessions (Ivan Lucky F....)
His "trick" was putting both WOOs close to each other.
The parent video shows that the woos are installed like a foot apart. That, off course, adds discrepancies...
You want better results? - Put them close to each other and in the center of the board..
You want more controversy - put them in different corners of the board :-)

Should go without saying to keep them as close as possible. A Woo on the toeside edge will move a lot more up and down than a Woo on the heelside edge.

As far as I can tell, for the higher 10+ jumps it looks like the Woo is fairly accurate, but certainly not all the time. below 8m it gets sketchy...
