Re: Core Bar decision - Sensor 3Pro vs 2SPro

bear in mind if you do loads of rotations one direction on bar with auto untwist, safety line will shrink in length as it doesn't get untwisted, to untwist it really you need to disconnect line from kite. FS infinity bar 4.0 has 5th safety line connected to one of the front line at the very end on k...

Correct, so depending on the board you have more low or top end
What do you recon is wind range for 17m LEI for inexperience rider with single board?
Mine sb 14m useable range where I enjoyed riding was 6kts

Re: Heavy rider equipment

12kts 100kg and LEI is not going to work, as some people mentioned for your weight minimum wind you need 15kts unless you get foil kite. LEI kites in 17m size are only ok-ish if wind is steady, they have like 4kts range, you get overpower very quickly. You would need at least 14kts on 17m away. They...

Re: 9m v 10m Soul

I had landed my 15m soul in 25kts so can’t see issue lunching 9m in same condition. In higher wind I would probably inflate kite more but again less air it has less pull is generates going up. Never flown such a small foil kites so maybe I’m ignorant to any issues. Can image that packing kite would ...

Re: Rebel to Dice or Evo

I remember that there used to be a theory that only certain sizes were fully tested (I think 9m being the key one) and that other sizes were extrapolated so you often got a better product if you stuck with the key sizes. I'd guess that this isn't the case as most brands have a lot more light riders...

Re: 9m v 10m Soul

I have similar dilemma but for TT and I'm leaning towards 9m to join my 15m. I would be always traveling with these two anyway but if had to chose one kite for travel it would be 10m soul.

Re: Rebel to Dice or Evo

Thank you for your time your answers are punctual and very helpfull. Do you think that a quiver of 7-10-12 can work too? Makes no sense to have 10m and 12m IMHO. For 75kg 7/9/12 For 85-95kg 7/10/14 For +95kg 8/11/15 Wind speed 14kts to 35kts. Smaller kite you ride the larger wind range is has.

Flysurfer Infinity bar 5th line

I got myself new Infinity bar 4.0 and already have Force Control bar. Wanted Infinity bar because it has auto-untwist feature at looks more clean than FC bar. I'm doing loads of backroll on one side at the moment and notice that 5th safety line is wrapping around one front line. It is a safety conce...
