Vegas 2013 - Size 11?

Postby papand » Sat Jul 07, 2012 1:01 pm

Anyone heard if they will add an 11m this year?

Been riding vegas past 2 years now, kite fits me really good - feel secure enough to try new stuf.

But im only 65 kgs and right now got 5,7,9,12M 2012- Would really love to change that 12m to an 11m

I have no idea if there will be an 11m Vegas. However, I can't help but wonder why you'd prefer an 11m over a 12m, given the other kites that you have?

Right now, you get a 40% jump in size going from your 5m to 7m; followed by a 29% increase from your 7m to 9m; and finally a 33% increase from the 9m to 12m. Why do you want to change this so that you only get a 22% increase when going to your biggest kite? Don't you prefer to keep the increase in size as balanced as possible?

Obviously, a 40% - 29% - 33% increase as you gradually switch to bigger and bigger kites isn't perfect. However, that seems more balanced than a 40% - 29% - 22% set of increases.

Of course, maybe you spend almost all your time on your two biggest sizes, and want those two to be much closer to eachother than the other kites. Or maybe there is something special about the 9m and 12m Vegases that I don't know about. If not, I think I'd rather keep the quiver you have.
