Which 7m kite should I choose?

Postby Ulah » Mon Apr 07, 2008 10:49 am

Hello,

I'm looking for a 7m kite to complete my wave riding quiver. I have several possibilities, but for my budget I'll probably buy one of these: waroo 07 7m or a bularoo 07 7m.

I need opinions about these kites. Oficially the bularoo is like a reinforced waroo, is this really true or both have diferent performances?

Thanks

Man, get a grip on yourself guys...

He asks a simple question for a dedicated group (those who has tried and knows the difference between the Waroo and Bularoo) - and you start pimping instead...

Shame on you :nono:

(and no, can not answer the question... I have some friends who has tried both types - but not myself, no)

Excellent kites, so dont "pimp" here - just answer his question please !
(and no, I dont ride BEST myself at all...)

But one answer is correct, namely that almost ALL kites in the 7m2 size works great :thumb:

:- ) Peter

This is not true, all 7m kites work great in 20/25 knots this is the true,
in strong winds and gusty 30+ knots some 7m kite is only for pump and hang to the beach.

Both the 2008 models (Waroo and Bularoo) are out now. I know someone who owns the 7m2 Waroo08, but the Bularoo08 has not been around that long to answer your question yet I am afraid.

For the 2007 models the opinions are for the 7m2 model:

Waroo: better jumper, slightly more performance
Bularoo: good jumper, more stable

I have not tested both models yet, but that was done in an review on the Dutch forum done by multiple riders.

Have you considered the Flexifoil Atom 08 7m?
An awesome wave kite and extremely quick with the best build quality out of all the brands imo!

I fly the Ion3's and wouldnt recomend the 7m as its not really suited to wave riding... its no where near as quick as the Atom.
Personally i dont like the Atom 08 but i have a different riding style and different qualities i need from a kite than you do.

Best bet is try a few and see what you think...

I have an 06 14m and 9m Waroo. I also have the 07 7m Bullaroo. I really like my Bullaroo. Fun kite and solid. I would buy it again.
