Core xr5 slow

Postby PusherII » Mon Oct 08, 2018 2:30 pm

So, despite the amazing reviews, i never really fallen in love with my core xr5. Boost machine and very stabile, amazing Wind range. But i feel it very very slow when drive It, have to go so aggressive on the bar, even with all regulation setted to move faster. I have a 10 and 13,5..
Am i the only one with this feeling?
Previous kite were bandits and i know i cant pretend the same, but i tried several other kites and noone has a so slow response time when i steer it

Make sure you sheet in all the way when you steer it, I did notice that you need to be quite powered for it to be responsive since at teh bar it's on / off when sheeting in and out. With bandit you still get some steering when bar isn't sheeted all the way.

coming from bandit it feels slow for sure either way, on the other hand the GTS is really fast.
