Nash pivot compared to north reach

Postby tazzpowerup » Sat Jan 27, 2024 2:58 pm

I have a 12m and 9m north reach now I like these but want something for higher winds thinking maybe a 7 or 8 m Nash pivot.
May be better than reach at that size. Has anyone flow these kites if so please tell how they compare.
Also does 8 or 9 m pivot fit best with 9 m reach.

First of all of course a 9m pivot is more or less like the 9m reach. So i d advise for a 7m pivot. I have flown both of them , pivot is more lively and agile with better top end. But you already have the reach , if you are happy with them just get a 7m reach for higher winds so you have the same feeling in all your kites

I have a 7 9 12 reach. Love them. 7 is brilliant. Got a pal who has the pivots and people who have them swear by them. Don't think you can go wrong with either. Not sure about the 6m shout above. Think that's too big a gap.

What is your weight?

If you are a heavyer guy i would recommend an 7 or 8m Orbit instead the Pivot or Reach. The Orbit with his 5 Struts can handle a lot more load in high winds, where the small kite will be obviously used and has more boost and hangtime.

If you are more on the lighter side, just geht a Reach. The 24er is such a nice kite. I never tried the Pivot, but based on the shape the Pivot will have a bit more boost and hangtime as the Reach, the Reach will be more direct. But both are very similar, as both are 3 strut allrounders.

2nd that ↑

You can't go wrong with the Pivot at half price :naughty:

But if you really need a kite to progress in stronger winds, get an Orbit :thumb:

Im 180 pounds.
The kite would only be useed 3 or 4 times per season. I get most use from my 12m and 9m.
I have a old 7m ocean rodeo prodigy only 2 sessions on it last year.

For two times a year just keep the prodigy. If you have the well known syndrome of wanting to get new equipment, spend your money somewhere else e.g.directional. foil, a nice wetsuit etc

The Prodigy is 10years old it feels a little sketchy when jumping in 30 knots. If I had a new 7m kite I would try to get out more in high winds.

Reach 2024 is brilliant, orbit is great in strong wind.

Pick a north kite, you want your strong wind similar to your bigger kites.
