Re: Slingshot Ghost

Thanks Grigorib. I use the SSTs but think for a kite that is billed as easy to waterstart I have had some lengthy re-starts with my SSTs. Could be the operator. Does the ghost water start easier IYO? I also think the Ozone Reo is the benchmark for wave kites and they water start very well IMO.

Re: Re: Ocean Rodeo Pilot Bar

FYI Liquid Force did address the stiff PU material for the new 2020 V3 bar. Looks like a real nice bar also.

Did not mean to hi- jack. I think there are many nice bars out there now and Ocean Rodeo does it right.

Re: Strutless Gong Kite Reviews?

Is anyone using their Gong strutless without the Gong bar? If so what bar and how is the different bar working? I am having some issues with my Gong and I am trying to determine if the bar is to blame.
Thank you.

Shameless plug. Keep your 17m for snowkiting. Got to have that.
Sell the NV and buy my almost new Gong one-strut Unik 10.2. All set for anything.

Erik have you had a chance to use the Unik kites some more to add anything to your review?
Thank you

Re: SS Rally 2012 9m vs LF Envy 2012 9m

2012 Rally will do it. Ticks all your boxes. If its in good shape buy it. Still one of the favorite vintages of the Rally.

Re: Gong kites reviews and tests

Had my first chance to play with my 4.4 Gong Unik. Took it out on the grass to test it in light winds. I also had to shorten the outside lines considerably to get it to fly nicely. I would estimate 4 inches of outside line shortened to get the kite to turn well and pass the slight back stall test fl...

Re: Cloud 9 X22 Surf Foil for kite foil review

Their aluminum mast fits on a different carbon fuse than the carbon mast fuse. It looks like the same nicely shaped carbon fuse but the aluminum mast bolts onto the top. The hole pattern for the Cloud 9 is the same as Liquid Force. I wish all the aluminum masts out there had the same hole pattern. T...

Re: Cloud 9 X22 Surf Foil for kite foil review

I use a 36 inch Liquid Force mast that appears to be readily available from online stores. I haven't felt a need for a carbon mast especially because most of the weight is in the fuse and wings. The Cloud 9 wings and carbon fuselage feel light at the end of the aluminum mast so hauling foil to the w...
