I felt there was a lot of lift and the speed it moved at upwind was too high. On the twin tip it also stalled quite often when keeping the bar sheeted in too long. Signs of front line stretch I guessed. No I have not measured by line lengths yet. Took me a good few sessions to get it dialed in.Tannum wrote:where as the pivot even when fully depowered is hard to steer and you have to edge hard, just like riding an old C kite.
Easy - they have much more windrange when more depower so preferred by many waveridersclint2070 wrote:Wow ! This the first ive heard of this ! I havent even uboxed my 10m pivot because my 12m is fine in everything ive seen so far in So Cal. I had the drifters too and wainmans and the drifters had no low end at all which is probably why they have good high end. Why would you wanna be on a bigger kite than needed though ? Slower turning speed ? More stable ?
