Anyone that can elighten me about waiman quiver windrange up to 10,5.
I used to have a Smoke 9m and a Boss 12m, coupled with the Blunt 130. I weight around 84 kilos and am an intermediate rider.
What i can tell you is that i found the Smoke to have an incredible wind range: i have basically used it 95% of my rides, i would say from something around 16 up to 30, and some more knots in gusts. Always loved the kite. Consider that it has three knots on the kite to attach back lines pending on wind strength, so you do have to go back to beach for major setting changes.
The funny thing is that on the conntrary i found the low end of the Boss absolutely not so distant from what i could do with the Smoke, while the top end was obviously much less.
Net in net, i've loved my Smoke more than any other kite i've ever tried, while overall i was rather disappointed with the Boss.
Safety on first gen to me was insufficient, and so is the absence of a movable stopper ball on the depower. By the way i think the stopper ball hasn't been fixed with the new gen either.
On a side not, the Blunt is the best board i've ever ridden (i'm an old school free rider).
Don't have anymore these kites as they were stolen....
