I absolutely like my 17m, best kite I’ve ever owned. Light wind old school, very light wind foiling, I can’t imagine putting it on a hold, considering what it provides to my riding, and how often I can use it, with total confidence.Windigo1 wrote: ↑Thu May 27, 2021 11:48 pmI was the guy riding 17m and 15m kite 50% of the time and now that I foil I am rarely riding bigger then 9m and it's a lot more fun. If you absolutely want a big Kite of the ones you listed I would go for the Juice but a much better kite would be the Ocean Rodeo Flite 14.5 go with the Alluula if you can afford it but even the regular one will be lighter and faster turning. The importance of light light wind kite cannot be overstated!
It can, and it is done all the time. I use on TT 17m 5 strut kite and issue of not being able to keep it in the air comes much much later than the limit to get going on TT. I don't even know how much it weighs. In 10kn every kite stays in the air, even though it had 7 struts or more but at the same time you start to struggle on TT. On hard surface limit to keep my 17m in the air and kite ski is 5kn. I can pull it up in 2-3kn (on surface 1-2kn) but it comes down pretty soon or immediately and constant flying/looping is a must.
