Re: Large Kite that will relaunch

Anybody tried the Ocean Rodeo Flite in those conditions? Also, try to keep your board with you. Sometimes the extra water resistance can make all the difference in light wind relaunch. Yes. I fly OR Flites. A 17m Flite will relaunch in those conditions. That said, I choose to reverse launch my 17m ...

my only concern wiht the slider bar, is the rope snapping. Seems like this happens quite a bit.
Empirical Evidence?

My world of facts has me riding on the same stainless rings on ropes for years. Never had a rope break due to a SS ring.

Re: Flite sizing

@randycasburn, I see your quiver goes 8, 12, 17. How do you like the 8m-12m spacing? It works well. However, I only get conditions for my 8m about three to four times per year. So I'm replacing my 8m with a Prodigy 9.5. A cheap plug here, but I have all these kites for sale if you're interested. I ...

Re: Flite sizing

So 12 vs 17m 100kg. I can get going in 14 knots with the 12m and a bigger board and by working the kite. What can I expect from the 17m? any input or guesses? I'm 79kg. For me, the 12m Flite has an incredible range of low 12 knots up to a max of about 21 knots (for me). I don't enjoy riding at eith...

Is it just a single pulley for the mod like with the Razor? Or multiple pulleys? I'm tempted to give it a go myself.
there are three pulleys on the Flite. Only the two inner pulleys get locked. The pulley nearest the wing tip must NOT be locked.

Re: Flite sizing

What the lock mod does for the kite’s performance, please? Lock mod sounds intriguing. Where did you see anything about it? You can expect to "feel" your Flite more in flight. Input is more direct with the kite responding instantly. I don't perceive more power through the loop, but maybe that is ju...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Roam feedback wanted

Matt - have you locked the bridles out on your 12 Flite yet? If not you should…it is more direct. You should like it.

Re: Who ride with sunglasses, and where?

Does anybody think the necklace that comes with some sunglasses is a strangulation hazard? I don’t. I use a different brand with is a cloth vs. rubber strap. I have crashed hard sunglasses off and behind me, with kitelooping and all. Never ever felt in danger or strangled. And every time, I reached...
