2012 Wainman VS Naish Park ('11 or '12) small sizes

Postby Mystico9 » Wed Sep 14, 2011 11:14 am

Hello everyone

Is anyone able to compare these two kites in terms of fastness, pivoting, traction, high/low end.
To be used only on waves.
Any answer would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Although I am hearing rumour the 6.25 Gypsy has an increabible top end and also low end grunt, quite amazing little kite.

Great way to make a comparison question into a sales ad!

Sorry I have no comparison for you. I think the kites are pretty different, just from what shape the Wainman has...to me the Wainman looks like a delta, and the Park is a cut off bridled c kind of hybrid.....but I have not ridden the new Wainman.

For a comparison (and following discussion of the 2011 and 2012 Park look here:

You can say it, the Park looks like an RPM.

..nah, the similarity stops at three struts. The RPM looks like a higher aspect and seems flatter, has a more complex bridle and much more square wing tips where the Park is rounder, has a deeper profile and seems more c-ish in its outline. Still haven't ridden it tho...my buddy who has RPS is happy with them, and even if we keep on saying we'll change over, we keep on just riding our own kites...
