How did you get on with all your Best kites? Particularly interested in the 12m sizes. Any more feedback would be great!
Many thanks, R
Hi, last week I finally got my TS 12 V8 and I tried it with 13-18 knots so I report my first impression hoping it could be useful to someone.
As known, the TS V8 uses for the first time only 3 struts instead of 5 and I confess that I was a little worried about this important change.
Actually I was very happy to realize that TS V8 maintains the same feeling of the previous versions with fast turning and powerful loops, gaining at same time a little more speed and lightness. Despite the two fewer struts I also had the impression that there was a slight improvement on the hang time.
I therefore confirm what was reported by betonklinker regarding the differences between TS and Roca, especially on different pivot turning and low end.
Generally speaking Roca is a more forgiving kite while TS is targeting slightly more advanced kiters.
Bar pressure on the bar is obviously customizable on both kites by changing the attachment points of the back lines on the tips of the kite.
I conclude by specifying that I have always used BEST material since 2006, passing through waroo taboo ts and so on and only few months ago I was affiliated to the brand.
So for any question on Best products I'll be happy to help
