Re: 2013 Ozone Reo + Slingshot Compstick 2011/2013 bar?

I fly C4on compsticks with no problems, you may have to swap the pigtails round but i can't remember how they came as I mod all my kites and bars to be interchangeable.

Re: Serious pinholes issues on the 2014 Ozone REOs

Those patches would ned to be bigger to work, my north dice has just got a pinhole 1cm from the edge of the patch, the neoprene cover is a better option if you remember it. I think Norths a re over built and ozones are just right. My 2013 c4 flys the same as it did when new and apart from the wear a...

Re: North Quad Bar - anyone else breaking the white middle l

Re: Downwinder advice - (long post)

We do a lot of downwinders and you can almost guarantee that something will go wrong for someone at the most risky part of the run. In light winds I tend to use the biggest kite that is suitable as you can always just ride at it if you become overpowered, and the reverse for strong winds as you can ...

Re: Serious pinholes issues on the 2014 Ozone REOs

I have looked at my 2013 C4 and there is some canopy damage around the area where the boston valve rubs when packed down. So at least I have learnt to be more careful and put it under the cover now. Do you think I can claim a new kite as I was not warned of this by the manufacturer?

Re: Vintage kites that are still relevant

2010 naish cults and helixes in small sizes are great. I sold mind the first time round and have been picking them back up for peanuts.

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2382887 viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2383881 Not real computer savvy, but above links reference past dealings with Ozone. Happy with customer service, not so sure about canopy durability. Pictures show numerous pinhole patches, appear to be located near inflate valve and raised stitching...

Re: Serious pinholes issues on the 2014 Ozone REOs

I am just interested to see the pictures as it is possible that there is a fault in the material or a cause due to the construction of the kite. The OP refuses to post them. Why? I believe Ozone uses Tejin, so if there was a fabric issue it would be showing up in all the brands that use Tejin. Just ...

Re: Blade fat lady vs Best TS v2 17m

The TS was slow on the turn and needed apparent wind before creating any power, it didn't loop as well, I rode my 13m back to back with it and found I could get the same results with working the kite a little. It didn't feel great with a surfboard due to it comparative slowness, and unhooked it was ...
