Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

I think that you are right that it is the default setting. Having said that everyone I know that uses the H4 also uses it in the wing. I tried both and I prefer it on the fuselage. Where is on the 76 I preferred in the wing. I also have the 84 that I use as a windfoil and on that one I preferred in ...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

I cannot answer your question about high speeds on the 76 but what I can tell you is the first time I used it I put the mast on the fuselage rather than the wing. This is the same as I do with my H4 wing. Even at slow speeds I could not keep the foil in the water. I kept breaching. So I went back in...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

I weigh how about 82 kg. I do not take wind readings so I can't tell you exactly how low the wind is. With the 12m pulsion and the H4 I can get up and flying when there are no white caps on the large lake I ride on. There was a 17 Cloud kite that would not stay in the air while I was up and flying. ...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

I find you can still carve with the Infinitiy 76. It just requires more input. Sorry but I do not have any input regarding the high-end like I said I do not push them to the high-end. So yes the 76 is still playful enough to carve but like I said it requires much more input to do so. Whereas with th...

Re: Slingshot fkite choice: Space skate 65 vs Infinity 76

I have both the H4 (which is the fkite in the older construction) and the Infinitiy 76 wings. I have not used the 76 a lot yet. If I could only have one I would take the H4. I find the 76 more locked in and it has a lot more lift. I do not find the H4 squirrely. I have no trouble traveling in a stra...

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

Thanks Regis. No need to ask about the wind range on the 9 meter for me. I spoke with Ben today and he is sending me a 9 meter to try this coming week. Based on your observations it sounds exactly what I'm looking for. I will report back once I have tried it. I will not be able to hydrofoil for a fe...

Re: Concept'air 12m Pulsion kite

Hi Regis. I also wanted to say thanks for your reviews of the Pulsion. I have been really enjoying the 12 meter. I was wondering if you have ever tried a 9 meter? If you have I would appreciate any thoughts you have on the kite. I also notice that there is an 8 meter Pulsion S. Have you tried it? I ...

Ozone backcountry connect harness

I currently have the original backcountry harness by ozone. I was hoping someone who has used the old one and the newer version could tell me what the differences are. In particular I'm wondering whether the waist harness portion is significantly more supportive. I use the harness both on land and o...

Re: Test of Pulsion 3.69m

I have the 6.5 pulsion. I also have a 6.5 original wave. I find that the pulsion is much faster through the wind window on the powerstroke and generates much more power during that stroke. I also find that it has more depower than the wave kite when not being moved. Although I find the wave kite has...
