Re: Good deal on black Friday/ cyber Monday?

Most everything is already on sale, with the small exception of the brands that only authorize sales on Black Friday through Cyber Monday.

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

mmm... with the 3 strut already so light, the struts being so thin, most of the weight savings are in the larger parts like the leading edge, going to a one strut might only save less than 3/4 of a pound, maybe not even 1/2 pound(?). Why not just ride the 3 strut and have the better relaunch?

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

That hasn't been my experience on the Aluula 12m Flite at all. I think it excels in high wind.

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

We've got every size of both models in stock so I don't know why anyone is still waiting for one model or size for.

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Boosted on the 12m Flite again today. Totally overpowered and had the Pilot bar trim strap pulled all the way down. It's nuts how solid that airframe is. I can't imagine being in control enough to boost and fly on any other kite with the trim all the way in. I then went in and after switching the pi...

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

After another day on the 12m Flite Aluula I am convinced Dacron for LE and struts is on the way out. Within a few years every brand will have Aluula or a knock off type material on all but their price-point kites.

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I could not have flown that overpowered with any other 12m and not had deformation and flapping. The Aluula did neither. While it isn't the best shape for the biggest jumps, I timed one g...

Re: OR Flight - Aluula

Pana, I didn't know a 14m Roam is in the works!

I just got out on a hydrofoil on the 12m Flite and it was great in the light wind. I want to try it for boosting in some strong wind though.
