Naish Pivot 7/9 or 8/10

Postby KiterNF » Sun Feb 10, 2019 1:06 pm

Hi,

I‘m going to add two more Pivots to my quiver. Currently I’m round about 200lbs.

In lighter winds <20 mph I‘m using my Directional with a 12m Pivot. Above I‘m driving a Twintip und like to do Jumping and Looping. Therefore I‘m thinking if it would be better to buy 10/8 or 9/7 for Wind between 20 and 40 mph.

Thanks for your Input and Feedback

As you already have the 12m I would go for 9/7 to have a nice coverage for all winds and good gaps between the sizes. I am 73 kg and I ride 11m/8m Pivot. Below that 7/5 Slash, because it is a little less powerful. If it was for a Pivot to add another smaller kite I would go for 6m, which I had before the Slash came out.

I'm around 190 lbs and ride 7 and 9m Pivots, and just got a 11m, but yet to ride it as I am currently in Cape Town and it would be useless most of the time here. I love my 7m Pivot, which can handle ridiculous wind strengths, like today, see graph.

Hi,
I‘m back :-) with an additional question. I now have 7/9/12 but thinking about changing 12 to 11 for better highend and buying an additional Kite for Strapless Lotung in Lightwind conditions. Have somebody experience with Pivot 14m or Boxer 14m? Which one would you prefer for 10-15kn with Directional or maybe also TT?

I have a 11m Pivot and I ordered a 14m Boxer to cover lower winds which will be 10knots or less (with Foil) to 15 knots with my weight (73 kg). I want a leighter kite in that wind range.

The 10 Pivot is a jumping monster. I mean I loooove the 9, but going powered on the 10 is special. The 8 will be a handful in 40 mph...I have a question. 40 mph I have held my 9 ok....but super lit. Are you comfortable going lit? It depends on what the normal wind is. If its more 23...then go 10 / 8. If it is 30+ then 9/7. The most used kite is the most important to get right. I call it your 90% kite. The kite you use most of the time at your spot. Never compromise this kite.

Btw the pivot is epic o don't worry too much. :-)

Thanks, do you also have some experience with the Lowend mit Directional? I have a 5,8 Mixer and not sure if a Pivot 14m would help with more Lowend or just add a 10m for jumping :-).

I used to have a 14, but ended up never going unless I could go with my 11. I feel it has good low end. I do not know the mixer board, but I generally ride the large naish skater if light, or Global when the waves are a tad bigger. The bigger kites definitely helps with the low end, but I tend to always want to ride a TT when I am on a big kite. They are awesome for learning tricks.
