I like boosting high lofty jumps and riding powered on the 9m, as well as slow cruising/carving on 633. I have been using ozone foil kites for four months and love them 2018 13 R1 V2, 2018 Chrono 11m V3, 2019 Hyperlink 9m V2.
I have tried a soul 10m, it was nice but didn’t depower when flying through the window and couldn’t get my timing right for jumping, albeit only had 1.5hr riding time.
I am thinking about getting a 7m Hyperlink V2 for those 18-20+ knot days when the 9m becomes a handful even after switching to jumping wings 695 or 548.
I was also considering the Chrono V3 UL 7m, but they are no longer made.
Would there be too much overlap with the 9m Hyperlink and what’s the hang time like compared to the 9m Hyperlink?
your right the 7mtr is a great low wind kite in the waves, and with good foil kite skills you will have a delightful fast and fun kite to play with in the waves, and with ramps available then boosting underpowered is still great.addictedtofoil wrote: ↑Tue Mar 09, 2021 12:15 amThank so much Foil for the information. Nice to hear that the overlap won’t be too much of an issue. I imagine riding percentages to be 7m @ 15%, 9m @ 70%, and 11m @ 15%. I wing ding as well so always something to do if it gets too windy.
It could be fun to fly the 7m between 15-20knots for some carving fun in wind swell and surf without being too overpowered.
I have pretty good kite skills so relaunching isn't really a big concern and only ever is in marginal wind with the 11m, the 9m has zero issues relaunching.
So, you prefer the v4 11m Chrono to the 11m V2 Hyperlink?
I think it might be time to go from a 11m V3 to 11m V4, and to get a 7m.
