Re: Soul 1 vs Soul 2

I lost my 15m V1 (under a very long pier) and got 15m V2 in under 1 week.. so not exaclty side by side comparison but pretty close. V2 seemed a bit slower to turn, less stable in the air but only by a tiny bit.. nothing collapsing, etc.. V2 does jump a bit higher.. I got 15m jump on it foiling rece...

Re: Soul v1 tips folding

My Soul V1 10m had folding wing-tips, I spent quite a bit of time to figure it out. Here is a tread I started afterwards, with a solution that worked for me in one of the posts. viewtopic.php?f=197&t=2411970&hilit=tun ... foil+kites

Re: Woo missing jumps

My woo stops recording jumps altogether at some point in the session. I have a garmin watch. Sometimes the jumps record onto the woo, without showing at all on the watch. Sometimes it does not record at all. Meaning that I usually have to turn the unit and the app off and on during the session, so t...

Re: Slingshot Machine V1 big air kite 2022

I have had a few sessions on my new 9m Machine V1 now. I find it to be very similar to an Edge, possible with better low end. Great kite overall with excellent boost and wind range. The leading edge and struts are very thin, I inflated it to only 7 psi once and then it was noticably soft in the fram...

Re: Windrange soul 10m twintip

I had a 10 Soul and 9 lei. It's a perfect combo. I traded the soul for an 11 Chrono, but from what you write a 10 soul is a better choice. The 12 has barely better low-end, at the cost of less speed, fun and ease of use/handling. Just take pracautions with landing and launching. With the 10 soul i a...

Re: Windrange soul 10m twintip

For me 10m Soul and 9m lei is all I need. The Soul can get me going on tt from 12 knots, I switch to the lei from 20 knots and up. I traded the Soul for a 11 Chrono now, but the divisoin remains the same.

Re: Is there any reason to have 5 struts on a big kite?

Thanks for all the input. The reason I am asking is that I am considering getting a 12-15 meter to go with my 9 m SS Machine As a, say, 12 machine would be slower that the 9, I figure I might go for a 3-strut. I already have a 11m Ozone Chrono which is my sub 22 knots kite of choice, but it is tric...

Is there any reason to have 5 struts on a big kite?

As kites from 12 and up are used in light winds, say from 20 knots and down, is there anything to be gained in having the extra struts? It seems to me that large 3 strut kites have better low end, are quicker, and less likely to fall out of the sky. Does a 12 m strut Orbit boost better than a Reach,...

Re: Slingshot Machine V1 big air kite 2022

Have any of you flown both XR7 and the Machine in 8m or 9m and is able to give a direct comparison? Wind range, upwind, speed, boost, loopability?
