Anyone have try these two kites?
I want to find out differences for high jumps,lift and hangatime, kiteloop behavior, drift, bar feeling, wind range, for old school tricks
Some recommendations are welcome about settings for best balance performance.
I use to ride cabrinhas ( my first equipment)
Previous years wainman hawaii ( good overall, especially for freeride kite that can drift well and unhooked also.. 12m, 9m, 5,5m)
Right now i ride with North evo 2016 model 12m, 10m, 8m.
My thoughts are mix for evo, not as good for drift and loops as wainman, also wainman especially 12m boss in fast setting had a light bar pressure , was good for hooked aerial tricks and good for learning unhooked...(except chicken loop that was not right for unhooked, was soft and small), jumping with 12m boss wasn’t so high.. or maybe my technique is better now..not sure
9m in medium setting was more heavy and different attitude, also good
Evo have an easy behavior for jumps, but the loops have not graduated power, seems like when you pull the bar first second you loose half of the power and you fall down...moving my hand more center this issue become less but the loop very slow..
It time to change the game...new kites..thank you
