UFO vs boxer

Postby dkazhdan » Thu Mar 18, 2021 1:58 am

Hi guys, I am trying to replace my 8m 2017/2018 boxer, wondering if a 7m UFO would be an adequate replacement in terms of the low end?

I was flying my boxer in 12knots on 29m lines, (200 pounds), do you think 7m UFO would deliver the same low end?

much appreciated

You can meet me at Meade in Hollywood so you can test my UFO 7.

I own ufo v1.1 in 9-7-5m
With the 7m I can ride from 11 knots with w679, 80kg and standard 20m lines.
The UFO 7m is a fantastic kite for HF in waves
