Re: Switchblade SB4 12m x Bandit DOS 12m

I'm about the same weight and have got a 12m Dos as my big kite but I have yet to use it as the winds have been strong since I picked up my quiver. As soon as I use it I'll be able to tell you what the windrange is like. I have bought it on the assumption I wouldn't need to go any bigger but I do us...

Rider: Intermediate, about 100kgs, shop rider for session1.com Board: Liquid Force Concept 135x38 I didn't have the original Bandit so I can't comment on what has changed but ...

Re: Bandit Dos: Give me feedback on it pls!

I have just picked up a 12, 10 and 8 so will give a review as soon as I use them. I believe for sizing you should go one smaller than last year so if you had a 9m Bandit you should go for an 8m Dos.

I reckon the one kite quiver will be the 10m Dos.

Re: Looking for a boardbag for 6.0'' and twintip AND 2 kites.

I agree with the post above, get a surfboard travel bag rather than a kitesurf travel bag. I'm looking at one of these for trips away now I have a surfboard in the quiver

Re: What kite buy ? Bandit - DOS / REV 2009 / Rebel 2009 ?

I'm going to say Bandit Dos because that's what I'm getting. :D And because I reckon that your rising style "a freerider, i like to do sometricks (something like oldschool style), i enjoy waveriding and downwinds" is the same as me, which the demo Bandit Dos I tried really suited. Other than getting...

Re: 2009 f-one bandit dos 2

I'm 36 kgs less than you... With a 9m Slingshot Turbo 2 I can go in the water and kite from 12-13 knots...So if the range of this kite is real with a 9m or a 10m I can go in nearly all the conditions...I agree with you that two-kites quiver is the best, but for now I can afford just one kite... I w...

Re: 2009 f-one bandit dos 2

For me it won't be a one kite quiver for two reasons: 1) I'm not an advocate of the whole "one kite" marketing regardless of which brand quotes it. All kites have a sweet spot and at the extremes either side of it you'll be underpowered or riding fully depowered which just isn't safe. I think a two ...

Re: 2009 f-one bandit dos 2

I was able to demo a 10m pre-production yesterday in around 20-25 knots. Absolutely loved it. I think the 10m will be the sweet size to build your quiver around. Fast turning, slight bar pressure (which I personally like), very stable. And the graphics - WOW. I've been told I should expect my quiver...

Re: 2009 f-one bandit dos 2

go for a 14m -9m you will have no gap. I tried again the 10m, it is powerful and sweet. Other guys tried it they really like it. The 12m Switcblade IDS has just a little bite more power than the 10m bandit dos. :thumb: Hopefully we'll get some sizes to demo but I'm heavily swayed to building a quiv...
