i know im killing this topic :) :D . i think about getting an 11m fuel as a low wind kite
to go into unhooked moves.
would it be to short the gap between my 8m switchblade??? i use 8m from 17 knots and more.
how low can go with fuell 11m with a medium size board and my 75kilos? :) ? ?

i dont thing that the 11m fuel is for (low wind kite) i don try the 09 model , i have the 07 model and i like very much for unhook the 13m and i say that this kite have good low end, very close to my rhino 12m 07 model. I like very much the fuels, now i kite only with this and i try a lot more tricks,
if the wind get strong , 30+ i use the 07m rhino for jumps , is fun. the sle have better jump for sure.
To enjoy this kite in all winds you have to be good or have good conditions in your local spot.

As I compared with '09 FUEL and '09REV.

I felt FUEL jump higher.Other cusomer who tried both had same opinion.
As I see them no doubt higher.

I haven't used FUEL11 yet .I have no idea of low end.

But shape is different by sizes.
FUEL13 is midium aspect then it move to smaller sizes to high aspect.
I thought it makes same movement for all sizes.

I would think if you use Ruben Bar .
It makes quite less depower.
Or maybe make active stopper ball closer to the bar.

Best thing about '09 Fuel is.If you stay kite low ,un-hook and edge hard.Kite don't move to forward just stay same position and cleate more pop power.It pull both lines and kite then pull back as extended rubber tube comes back(slingshot..). Normaly surported LE kite goes forward which mean is to far up to edge of window when you edge hard.Which makes less pop.

'09FUEL stays best place to pop and cleate maximum power.

If you can try on very light wind about hobberling like 4 line sports kite.You'll find out '09FUEL is only one inflatable kite which can do.
