Nothing like a fresh new kite to motivate.
Would appreciate a review of your new 7m Slash if you can spare the time.
WOW, that was a great downwinder yesterday!
Coming of a quiver of liquidforce WOW V4 that can be my only comparison.
The slash has a very smooth power delivery in comperision with the wow, i guess that comes because the canpoy doens't flutter.
The wind was gusting till 35 knots and was at some time riding overpowered, but even with an fair amount of depower on the bar it performs really good.
The slash is a quick kite but i have the feeling the wow is a little bit faster thru the powerzone (but with a shakey/flutter canopy) so i prefer a bit less speed but more stabitity.
I think both kites are great but the slash gives such a smooth ride that i prefer that one.
The only downside i can think of is the small bag and the non PU coated centerline on the bar.
The wind is picking up now so i'll be going for another session.
