Re: Airush Union v6

We had a couple of quivers into the UK via airfreight - but the first production sefreight are still stuck in the global shipping bottleneck. Those that have them say that they feel the same as V5, though I understand the leading edge is slightly larger on the tips of the kite to aid stability in ha...

What's your weight and how tall are you? I am undecided (again) between getting 136 and 138 Ronson. I am 75kg and 187cm tall :/
183cm / 6', 84-81kg depending on lockdown ;-)

Re: Shiny Bronq advice

Yeah I've seen his reviews on Shinn boards some time ago. Sadly, he hasn't talked about Ronson too much. I can if you wish! The Ronson I always found a bit twitchy for my style in my size (41 wide) but I had a bit of a revelation when I tested the next size up - 138x42. I really liked it - It has a...

Re: Shinn Ronson Player

Thanks but I am particularly asking about the differences between the ronson player and the ronson magnet. None of the people who wrote in the posts seemed to still be riding ronsons so I opened a new thread particularly about the Ronson (and not the Bronq like the previous ones) The Ronson Player ...

Re: Tear Aid A won't stick to bladder

Also - if it's cold - the adhesive doesn't bond well.
Warm both side with a hairdryer and when stuck in place get it good and warm again to make the adhesives really bond well.

Re: Shinn Jackson - Sunburner

New Jackson feels like a completely different board. For sure those who are pushing super hard to race levels me want a 100% solid board but for freeriding the new one is very good. I have a carbon volume board and I cant tell any difference at normal power levels (well my normal power levels anyway...

Re: Shinn K2 Foil - Progression accelerator

I had the same thoughts when I used this foil too. The increase in speed does not mean an increase in front foot pressure - it's very balanced and confidence inspiring in a straight line. It's 850cm, so goes really early and yet your top speed is a function of how much power you want to pour in, the...

Re: Airush Lithium Progression 12m?

:Thanks for your replies. As I am still a beginner I guess progression should be just fine for me :D I have a choice of flying it on 20 or 24 m lines (Blade uni bar I have has 20+4 extension, it is a V). What length I should use with 12m Progression I bought last week on sale? :thumb: Personal pref...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Thought the same but i was told that the 10 Ultra is very powerfull (and low end in 9 wave is not great That's true, There are two main patters in the new V2 Ultra. 9 and downover are the same as last year, but 10 and above are lighter and faster turning designs, so they feel like they have more po...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Thanks Mike. I have 145 lightwind Crazyfly TT but mostly ride surfboards in the 5'8 size fairly wide with smaller kites 185 lbs. The 14 can be a bit much in the surf sometimes. The idea here is to replace the older 14 with something newer for those marginal days when I just want to get out and ride...
