Reedin Supermodel?

Postby sewerrat » Tue Jun 09, 2020 5:41 am

People who ordered should have kites by now. Any thoughts yet from non sponsored riders? What bar and line length? will probably just pick up an 8m Enduro 2 as they're about to go on close out, but I'd sure like to ride like Kev!

1. Why start a new topic, KF is full of Reedin Topics.
2. You can not ride like Kev.

Will probably be hard to find reviews like that since I don't think many people were buying kites during the corona lockdown phase, that is just easing up now.

Saw one flying this weekend at the beach. The owner was really happy with it. He said it was more comparable to the Naish Dash than the Pivot. He liked how the kites boosted, looped and he also enjoyed them in the waves, sounded pretty allround.

i have a 11 and 9 m reedin . Was out in 22 knots on the 11 m en about 25 knots on the 9 m ( twice )
I have 2020 Pivots to and 2020 rebels so I think I can compare . Kite is solid build , good inflate , but I like that from de Pivot more .
It is not a big air kite imo , but a good allround kite . Did not try it on my surfboard but think it is good for that ( better than the Naish and Rebel )
The kite excels in loops , yes that's what I liked most on it . Bar pressure is light and did not increase when wind did . High end is huge , low end I don't know .
For me as a old scool guy , I missed hangtime compared with the Pivot and Rebel . The kite is playful and the bar is super light , untwist works good ( like core )
it Is real stable in the air but I did not feel the position off the kite as good as I do with the pivot and Rebel . ( probably I have to get used on them a bit )
so if you want a do it all kite ( TT and surfboard - foil ) without the need off breaking a WOO record you will have fun on these !

The reedins are v nice, very responsive, v good on both SBs & good boosting. But for ultimate boosting, the Orbit2 is even more impressive, just not so good on a SB

I'll be getting my 9m Orbit2 as soon as I'm allowed out to play in Wales. Gone back in time and got a Naish Monach as well. This board has some fins :thumb: Got a Bandit S for the SB

I like the look of the Reedin footstraps. Anyone used those?
