I'm with you, dude, it's impossible to keep this group focused on a topic, right?? So I'll bite.....snowflake wrote:Cannot believe that nobody compared the Zephyr vs Turbine vs Contra vs Boost? There was one thread contra vs. zephyr around 1 year ago but it ended in Nirvana :X
Thank you. Can you also elaborate a bit on drift and unhooked properties of these 3-kites? Is the Contra fast enough to catch you in kiteloops?FLandOBX wrote:Zephyr: Fairly responsive for a big kite. Ozone is a great manufacturer, but the Zephyr may be less durable over time due to concerted efforts to reduce weight.
Turbine: Slingshot makes highly durable kites, and the reputation of the Turbine is consistent. It would be in the mix for me.
Contra: This would be my choice. Not a quick flashy performer, but a solid steamroller. You'll always know where your kite is positioned in the sky. No back-stalling, no real quickness, but it will be there 100% when you need the power. That's what I want in a light wind kite. (My priorities are different when the wind picks up.)
I'm not your guy for info on riding unhooked with a 17m in light wind. I'd guess the Turbine would perform better than the Contra for that, but others would have a more informed opinion.snowflake wrote:Can you also elaborate a bit on drift and unhooked properties of these 3-kites?
