Hi, don't know if you bought your gear yet. I use FX myself. 2018 gear though. Good flies dash so I get to use them a lot as well.
First of all I like both and I am sure you will be happy either way. Differences are pretty slim from what I can tell.
However for slack and unhooking I feel the dash is superior. I have to pull the bar a lot for the kite to react. For looping I prefer the fx.

But again, both are great kites :thumb:

And since you asked for board as well, I ride the naish monarch with boots and am happy with it. Most of my friends use the stomp though :)

No didn’t buy any yet, having a complete ruptured Achilles from surf.
No action until April.

But think the monarch is me.


Thanks for all inputs, great💪🏻💪🏻

I severed my Achilles a while back. You'll back on the water, but take it easy in the beginning. Monarch is a great board. Cuts through the chop well.

Wish you a speedy recovery.
I'd choose Stomp for boots any day, but that's me. Main thing is to get back to the water no matter what board you ride. 🤙🙂

No, I did not.
Used to ride Torch till 2017 or so, and I've replaced it w/ Dash.
Sorry...

I have a mint condition (flown twice) 11m Dash for sale (£475) in the "second hand" section if anyone is looking for one.
