Liquid force Solo windrange

Postby mar menor » Wed Apr 03, 2019 10:05 pm

Have got a 9m (v1) and a 12m (v2) am a beginner so expect the usable range by me at the moment to be narrow , as riding the board 'flat'
On a Shinn Jackson with a P foil,on fairly flat water

I have a full quiver of V1 and V2's.

With my old LF Rocket Foil I would ride:
- 17m 6-10 knots (This was a BRM Cloud C2 though)
- 12m 8-15 knots
- 9m 12-20 knots

Now that I have a NP Glide L:
- 9m 8-15 knots

I think the 12m is too much kite for my large wing at any wind.

Yes, just below and close to 9 knots :)

That's great. I don't need the 12 anymore! 😁

Was my original post...once I could foil I didn't like the Solo , for me 'too grunty and heavy.Much prefer the PLKB synergy and Ozone Alpha. The new versions may be better

I have a Shinn P foil and I owned a Solo 12M V2 for a while. I would say around 8 knots with the 12M. I had purchased the Solo for foiling but I was very disappointed in it. It's very heavy for a one strut kite as heavy has most 3 struts.

Can everyone please specify which version of Solos?

I have heard the V1s were no fun, but thought they got better w V2 and V3?
