Here’s a review of the 2022 V2 Slingshot Ghost:
Yes but the question being asked was about the 2020!

I really liked the ghost 4m and I should get around to selling it. I think it would be great for a smaller rider as an all round kite.

Those weights seem high my 4m 2020 ghost came in at 1360 grams or just under 3 lbs

(For reference ufo 4m1060 grams)

That would put it inline with this chart for the ghost v2

Thanks for all the input. I pulled the trigger and went for the UFO V2. This kite is 100% for foiling for me, so the UFO made sense. I was considering a peak also but from all the reviews the UFO comes close in performance to the peak without the negative of almost zero chance of relaunch.

Heya can anyone comment on the 2.5 ghost? Specifically does it fly ok in sub-15knots for teaching youngsters?
Thanks in advance

Get a FS Peak (or Hybrid) for teaching young ones IMO. You can teach on them in 8 knots and super safe.
