Well if you main concern about the Park is the octopus system I would not worry. I've had a LOT of Naish kites, and not had a leak on the Octupus ever. I've had two bladders pop all in all trough the years, and changing them was no problem. Super easy access to the bladder connections.boyceduke wrote:Hi, I am in the market for a new quiver of kites. If i choose the Park im thinking 9 & 12, ID probably the 8,10 & 12. I appreciate the Hadlow ID is a new addition to flexi's line up so information is limited, im just hoping there are more people out there who have ridden it can pass on there thoughts.
The usual media hype is positive so hopefully it will live up to the reputation. I have read a few reviews from a lucky few who have given it a maiden flight. They are raving about it, my mind was almost made up subject to a demo until I spoke to one helpful chap who confused the situation and said I should consider the naish park 2012 for my style of riding. I hadnt really considered Naish as I dont trust the Octopus system, does any one have any thoughts on this and what the general build quality is like with Naish these days.
My style of riding is a mixture of intermediate freeride/freestyle in the UK in cross on shore conditions. I like to be powered and I weigh 93 kg, ride a TT 135. I dont normally go out kiting unless it is blowing 16+ knots.
Any help would be good...
My unhooking is something to be desired...it happens, but I'm not good. Backstalling is a matter of a slight sheet-in. I have not had any backstalling that I didn't want.boyceduke wrote:I have seen the info on kite crowd, that's wat made me interested in the first place in the id, naish is not a big force at my local beach and shops don't stock them so getting a demo may be tricky. They do look the business, can anyone explain what they are like at boosting (old sch) and how they behave when un hooked, I've read a few reports that they backstall more than similar shaped kites. Also if I get out on the id I'll post a review asap
