Difference between Eleveight FS and Slingshot RPM? Need your opinions

Postby Crocket » Sun Jul 12, 2020 8:30 am

Hello guys,

last year I switched from classic C-Kites(after 7 years) to the RPM. I really like the kite and the performance(windrange, jumping, unhooked, reliability in gusty conditions), but on the downside I miss the raw, explosive power and this typical C-Kite feel.

Does the FS comes closer to being(or feeling like) a C without some downsides of it or is it just the same as RPM? :bye:

Couldn't get my hands on one by now and most likely will be difficult.

Honestly I tried both and absolutely love the FS much better feeling from it and punchy loops. The gear is also more innovative for example the bar is adjustable for line lengths unlike ss and even I dislike that ss has the old school inflate valves. As I've just ordered the 2021 gear last week I'm selling my 9m with bar if your interested.

Thanks for your reply. I'm not interested in yours. I will more likely buy 10/8.

Your impression is what I thought of it by seeing its flying characteristics.

I'd definatley go for it, I've ridden them the past two models and every year they are getting better. Best of luck and enjoy
