came across to another FS sonic fr but this time found a good deal on a barely used 11m.
Can anybody say something about low end stability and relaunch of this kite? Is it also a beginner friendly foil kite?
I cant comment on that model, but that size for me will not deliver the goods in the super light wind that this thread is aimed at finding.
I have am 11mtr chrono V3 ultralight, and consider this not up there as the best super light wind tool.
my 13 however has been my most fun kite to use in next to no wind,
however, there is a very small gap the 13 misses, and my 15 chrono ultralight certainly fills this.
but, there is a but.
I don't enjoy using it, at least not in the winter winds as I get to feel the gusty bits as being far too overpowered,
And often end up with rapidly increasing heart rate moments as the little gusts try to turf me off the board,
thermal summer winds though feel quite different, almost a pleasure to use.
The Jury is still out on this kite for me, I did put it up for sale recently, but removed the add after a few days just in case I changed my mind when on holiday for two months in the warm winds of fuerteventura,
that holiday starts tomorrow, so my verdict on my 15mtr will be finalised by february.
right now my 13mtr chrono ultralight is my answer to finding the best kite for fun and boosting in featherlight conditions.
expensive option though
I must add that Steve my sailing buddy who is light at near 70kg just loves his 15mtr chrono v3 ultralight, I am 20kg heavier, but his skill level on a foilboard and foil kite is off the scale, so that plays a big part.
