Hi guys. For a kitesurf quiver from force 3 to 5 or 10 knts to 22knts what do you suggest? 14/12/10/8 m or 14/12/8 or 12/10?

I'd go for 9 and 13, will do you for most of the conditions and cost you less

Looks like you've been pretty active on this forum lately looking for advice on building a quiver with a compatible bar(s). Well, you came to right place for advice. It would be more useful however, if you listed your weight, where you plan to ride(waves, chop, flat, snow, ect...), and what your primary goals are. Even if you're not 100% sure yet, it will be a good starting point to help dial you in. :D

Hi guys. I was a windsurfer, then in 2008 took a kitesurf course and bought an f one bandit (I think) 12m and a takoon 128 cm in second hand. As a consequence of bad lessons and work I sold everything. Then after more than 10yrs I am learning to kite again with another teacher and I am building my quiver. I weight 93kg, 90% of the time the wind is in the range of 11knts to 20knts and it will be freeride in flat water and sometimes maybe some 0.5 to 1m waves of choppy water. I have one 2016 Slingshot RPM 14m, Naish Pivot 12m, Slingshot wave SST 2014 or 2015 8m. And a Naish 50-55 bar with 20m lines and a North trust bar that was 5 lines reconverted into 4 lines with a very high V. It is worth to buy a 2017 cheap Naish 45-50 bar with 20m lines and a Ozone Catalyst V1 10m also cheap and sell the 8m and the 14m? Or another option, sell the 8m and the 14 and just have a 12m pivot and a 9m slash? Ah, my board is crazyfly 145×44. The thing is that I will not have lots of sessions during the year due to family time, so when I have room to go kiting and it will not always be in nice and windy days I want to have the size adequated for that" day. Or am I being exaggerated on the quiver?

I would keep the 12m pivot and get a 9 pivot and sell the rest. The pivots have great range. You could add a door board for the really light days instead of getting a huge kite.

And just a 24m line bar or a 20 and 24m? And for the 9m can be the slash? I don't find a 9m pivot st affordable prices?

24m bar only would be my suggestion or 20 with extensions gives more options but that can get get counter productive as the timing changes a lot.

Keeping your kites same model especially in a minimum quiver is the way to for for TT riding.

Antonioc6, my advice is to keep what you've got and figure out how to get on the water more often. I've seen lots of beginners spend thousands of dollars on equipment that never gets used because they don't find time to get on the water. You will be happiest in the sport if you can progress, and you'll need to get out and kite to progress. The equipment you already own sounds more than adequate at your stage (most beginners only have one kite and one board). Water time is what you need, not more kites. Good luck! :thumb:

It makes no sense to me to have all those kites and only one board!
