What qualities of the V4 and the Rhino 4 made you choose the V4?

Thanks!

I'm not sure what the reasoning would be behind this... The whole point of UDS is to allow for easier depower, pulley bars don't allow you to depower (except through the strap) but give you faster turning.

However, UDS will speed up your kites' turning ability like a pulley bar when you are unhooked.

How would you compare the 20 to the 16? They would seem to me to be pretty close... I was hoping to get away with a V4 16m as my biggest kite, but be able to go (or stay) upwind in 10-12 knots.

bear in mind that saul isnt restrained by market demand, so he can build kites that are perfect for him in specific conditions. i doubt any major manufacturer would be willing to take the financial risk on a kite for such a specific set of conditions, even the big high wind kites from manufacturers...

These guys are great because they try out all the different concepts in kite design and give reports. This really helps a person who wants to buy but is not sure what kite design might work best. I think this particular kite proves that the big kite sizes (20+) do deliver in light wind scenarios... ...

I was waiting to see if any locals replied, as I only visited LA once for kiting. From my expereience I can tell you its not exactly a kiting mecca as you can only kite half the days or less even during the peak (spring, summer) season. However, apparently you can kite in the winter there, so thats ...

Your 2004 Quiver (again)

Before the server got wiped out we had a really good sticky thread going on everyone's 2004 quivers. If you don't mind, post your quiver for next year (old or new) again, or for the first time.

Thanks :bye:

So maybe this is a good quiver than: Boxer 9m, Boxer 12m, V4 16m

We have a great light wind spot here in town thats closer to me than the Gorge, so it'd be nice to have a good light wind kite.

Don't you think flying in the fixed loop 90% of the time and its relaunch make it an expert kite?

Trust your instincts, the X3 IS an expert kite, and its even too much for a lot of experts (Naish pro team riders don't ride it these days, they ride Boxers.) Its got more wind range than a more medium AR kite (like the Aero II) but its probably not worth it. The Aero II still has good wind range, I...
