But as you read this site, certain lines of thought seem to emerge.
Like Switchblade pully bars jam, Waroo bridals break, Cautions hindinberg, etc. etc. etc. I was wondering if these were accepted trends, or one-off situations?
Mine has never hindiberg or inverted. :thumb:

Severe accidents frequently involve the lack of sufficient: Hazard Awareness, Appreciation and Avoidance. Definitely seeing plenty of that... Guys don't know a weather system / wind change is coming, they don't care, and they don't put down their kites. I agree with this so much I have to bring it ...

Caution Spitfire II or Caution Spitfire III. You will not believe it!!!!!!!!!! Demo one. I should add it relaunches much easier, goes up wind better, more stable, much more depower and believe it or not more pop.

Almost all the flat riders around here think little of any of the 16m flatties. They are all slow at that size. The shape of the kites just doesn't work well at 16m. I tried different brands and all seem to really slow up and not really have much more low end then the 12m or 14m of the same brand.

Sea&Sun, I saw you have a Caution answer as your avatar. Do ride a 16, 12 or other size? How does the caution compare with the Rebel 14? Wes The 14 Rebel has more low end then the 12 Answer. I really love the 12 Answer and use it 95% of the time. I have only been on the Rebel 3 times in very light ...

I have used the 14M 3 times in very light winds and I can not imagine the need to go for a 16M at your size. The 14M is a light wind machine.
