Yep...can confirm they fixed the velcro so's its not sticking...which from what I hear didn't happen to every set. Did happen to mine tho... The LF dealer gave me an extra insert which worked on my 06 straps which I used on a Best Balsa Pro 130. I recently bought the 07 Luxury Straps and they are no...

4rno, Definitely the kites aren't comparable. The Assault is a true Bow whereas the Rhino is a hybrid. Both therefore have the characteristics common to their designs. The Assault 1 was not that good but LF have made great improvements to it. The Assault 2 is the equal of any bow kite out there righ...

Damn...I'd love to hear a comparison. Nobile is wayyyyyy more expensive than our local LF retailer but LF boards have a crap rep for being too stiff. These Recoil boards really seem like the answer but I can't believe a first generation LF 'snowboard' style construction job is going to match the per...

Who are the brands?

My mates and I are having a lively discussion at the mo...Question is...who are the major brands and who are the minor brands? We feel that there is definitely a two tier market but is that right? Everyone knows North, Naish, Best, Cabrinha and Slingshot but are there any other 'Major' Brands? And w...

Anyone tried Assault 2 19?

I'm thinking about using this as my light wind weapon. Anyone tried it or other large bows? Plan to use it in 9-15 knots. I tried a friends Assault 1 19 but bar is terrible - you can't adjust the depower on the fly. Or at least I couldn't. The kite flew fine otherwise. Anyone know how the Assault 2 ...

Riding 10-12 knots in 2007

What's the best way to do this given the following criteria:- 1. Bow/Hybrid/C all acceptable. Foils are not. 2. Must be able to boost at least as well as Rhino 4 20/Raven 20 3. Should have better low end pull than both of those kites 4. Twintip board 5. Chop but no serious waves Any ideas gratefully...

Self Rescue - IKO procedure for 5 line kites

Wondering if anyone can help with this. I did my IKO level 3 on 4 line kites while on holiday in Antigua a few years ago. I am curious to know what the IKO recommends for 5 line kites.

Thanks for the help!

Light Wind Bow - Size vs kite profile vs brand

In that never ending quest for the extra 1/2 a knot low end, or to finally get some real hang time at 10 knots, OR BOTH I'm keen to try a bow. But I'm a little confused. What exactly are the advantages of Bow's over C's in light wind? Sure I understand the depower and the safety side but in light wi...
