I ordered a bunch for Spain this morning, they should be here in 2 weeks
My new Zephyr should arrive soon, so I promise a honest, objective review as soon as I've spent some time on it. I am 190 lb and I'll publish realistic wind ranges on raceboard, waveboard and twintip. Also, me and a few buddies will compare the new Zephyr with 2009 Xbow 16, 2009 rebel 16, 2009 Flysurfer 17... among others. To be continued....flipper231 wrote:Not sure I get it... I read stuff about 160 to 190 pounders going out in 12-15mph, I do that with my Evo 15m and to some extent if it does not drop below 12 with my Rebel 12m. 8 knots is within the range of most 15m kites. Are we not just seeing the fact that a bigger kite (with light construction)handles lighter winds better? How would it compare to an old Contra 17m? Not sure I get it, I would be surprised to try the Rebel 16m in those conditions I am not saying it would be better just wondering, also the Zeeko 14 has that clever relauch line attached to the tip of a strut, I saw it relaunch in not much but my Rebel 12 was also relaunching. I also read about a 52kg (115lbs) loving it but again... Given this kite relaunches very easily, what is the relaunch like in deep water with no board in your feet (yep happens...)? i need more convincing than a 190 pounder gets going in 10 knots...By the way I am 188lbs dry.
