So its Ok for Saint Dwight to just go off half cocked and slag a competing brand on the first reply to this thread. Edosan, the originator of the thread asked "I have seen (Over the net) both kites and they pretty look the same, any of you have try both?"It is well clear to me and the rest of the sane people who read the forum, what the problem is, it is a pity Toby cannot see you are destroying thread after thread with you ill informed, mostly off topic, or simply idiotic, vitriolic opinions and kooky theories.fokiten wrote:Well,
Just to make it clear to you troll-power:
First reply in the thread, very straight forward attempt to slag a competitors kite, by admitting that North fucked up on the 04/05 rhinos, good stuff! If you call that an opinion fine, just remember all opinion are like arseholes, everyone has one. Lets stick to the fact here, keep it real or piss off.Dwight wrotePretty straight forward,,,expressed his opinion, and said I reccognize that construction....period.Leading edge construction is better on V6 in my opinion. Flexi is using construction that exploded on older North kites.
luke rebbeck wrote:Foolkitten's kitty shitIf you look very closely at the Flexifoil leading edge seams, you will spot the differences in constructions to the older North leading edge seams.
You will notice the different stitching (triple zigzag rather than single zigzag) and also the significant internal reinforcements. In developing these seams we built, strength tested and destruction tested many leading edge tubes with different seams and reinforcements, until we could create a tube with the correct stiffness and strength properties.
Aside from the lab testing, we also use some of our riders extensively in testing. If you have seen any of Aarons training sessions in South Africa, you will see him crash the kites hard in 35kts wind, over and over, day after day. Aaron cannot afford to have his kites break easily, and neither can we.
At Flexifoil we have our own repairs department, so get to see virtually every Flexifoil kite that is broken so we can assess and strengthen areas of potential weakness. We constantly strive to make our kites stonger and more durable year on year.
I'm glad that you like the way our kites fly, when you next see a Fusion at the beach have a close look at the kite and I'm sure you will see the differences.
Take it easy
Flexi R&DThere you go, it >IS< the same construction as viewed from the outside,,,
the only difference being triple zig,,,inleu of single zag..
NO DIFFERENCE IN CONSTRUCTION VISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE.
just some extra thread...
can you see that now?
the main difference was not visible to Dwight.
YET you go off... troll-blow spits the dummy:
I own Fusions, I have owned exploding Rhinos, you have not, so piss off back to the letter tray. The only thing you are innocent of is having any intelligence.
Your replies in this thread are a real record of what you really are, they are a typical and predictable response, recorded now on the net forever. Or until the lights go out, and in your case the light went out a long time ago, get off the puter and go play with some of the free shit you have scammed.
I hope we get some opinions on both kites, since the Vegas 06 are getting out to REAL users now. The guy who used our 12M demo yesterday (after I had ridden the kite and fixed the bar) is wrapped, he commented that he felt it had approx 70% more depower than his Vegas 05, and will be buying a Vegas 06, he is just a guy off the street. Winds were in the 17/18 to 25 knots range while he was out, he weighed approx 80kg rode a 130ish board.
People were also out riding 12M Fusions.
