Vantage Vulture v3

Postby dewwy » Mon Apr 25, 2022 8:57 pm

Anyone got to try the new iteration already? Am especially curious how it performs against other 3-strutters (rs, pivot, supermodel, etc...) for big-air/looping & general freeriding.
Marketing bs aside, the pricing seems quite good.

cheers

I have the V3 (replacement for v2) and I am happy with it. Before that I flew two (3) different versions of the bandit for a couple of years.

Bar pressure a bit lower and the feel is a bit different but performancevice the v2 felt every bit as good as the bandit. The v3 probably has a little bit more lift (but it is not a revolution).

Turningwise it is as fast as the bandit. I have access for an rs and my friend has the supermodel v1 but I have only tried it for a very short session in very light wind so will not say I can compare with it. Hope it will be possible to do it during summer though.

Set a new PR on the v3 on last session - not that I am a very advanced kiter.

Not crazy about the color scheme but that is more fashion than performance.

Appear to be decent quality and have not had any quality issues.

Prefer the bar over the linx bar (and 100% over the monolith)

Cheers for that, sadly haven't flown any bandits so can't compare :/.
What happened to your v2 that you got a replacement?

Oh sorry if it came out wrong.

I just bought the v3. At the moment trying to sell v2. Didn't really need to though but got tempted in a weak moment :-D

Only frustration so far that there is no wind at the moment where I live which is quite uncommon for this time of year. Hopefully it will change soon.
