Honest advice lol

Postby pj sofine » Wed Nov 13, 2019 4:34 am

I've been selling off all my kites.I need a fresh perspective . I'm not going to mention the kites I've been riding (in love with) since 20011.I want a high jumping ,mega looping kite. I don't want some watered down sissy looper. The issue with my current kites is its hard to get to the height I would like to achieve. This is probably a give away to what I'm currently using. I want a kite that will achieve big jumps with an insane pull through the loops.I may end up with the latest version of what I'm using now , but I want to keep an open mind. Thanx

naish torch is the highest jumping C kite but for a hybrid I like the enduro I think it pulls the best and jumps decent. Rpm also pulls decently and jumps ok, but I think a bit less pull than the enduro. The C4 doesn't jump well, that's only for unhooking. Also despite Naish having the best C kite on the market their hybrid the dash is not as good as other hybrids. I want to try the eleveight FS I've seen how high it jumps but it's hard to tell how well a kite like that loops until you do it yourself. Just my opinion, like always take it with a grain of salt go demo them yourself if possible. I also want to try the razor sometime I spent all my time on the aluula kites last time I went to an Ocean Rodeo demo.

Naish Torch.... :thumb: just the perfect kite for massive kiteloops, big air and freestyle.

Edit: Looking at your signature you have a 12m Torch. You will never jump that big on a 12m, but how high do you want to get ? Jessie Richman used to get around 24m on the Torch.

Eleveight FS. Solid kite been loving it 5 struts so no flapping canopy and the kite pulls like crazy.

Also the bar is solid and kite lines really high quality!
Otherwise if for some reason you don't want eleveight

Duotone Dice or Cabrinha Fx

There is your issue. Kites that pull hard in the loops often need more work to get the big height.

Easy to jump kites are normally flatter. Kites that pull strongly through the loop are normally more C shaped. Its why the KOTA winner for the last couple of years has chosen a flatter kite as the scoring rewards height most of all.
