Kite Purchase Advice

Postby A_Hopf » Sat Nov 30, 2019 7:56 pm

New 2017 Ocean Rodeo Flite 10m (800 CAD) vs. used 2018 Naish Pivot 10m (800 CAD, professional repair job on trailing edge)

What do you guys think, which of these would you buy and why? I would appreciate any input! I'm a 175lb intermediate level kiter, looking to improve my jumping and to start doing tricks.

All I can add is that professional repair jobs are typically just that, professional, and are in fact stronger than stock so one should not worry about that aspect of a kite. This is the case with Airtime Kite, in any event.
