How well does the Roam A or HL turn when the bar is sheeted out or trimmed depowered?

E.g. the other day I was foiling a 6m Airush One and found that it turns great with the bar sheeted in but barely responds to the bar at all with the bar sheeted out (despite trimmed fully powered).

... i'm about 280lbs ...
280lbs is ~127 kg.

Someone of this weight saying anything about the performance of kites is meaningless for typical kiters.

As for riding mountain bikes, 127kg typically exceeds weight limits on MTBs.
HaHaHa YES! I couldn't agree more - that's WHY I NEVER LISTEN TO THE LITTLE PEOPLE and there are SO MANY of you scattered about...

You might be surprised what 280 lbs can do - often I'm the ONLY one out in the fall Rooster winds holding down my 7m.

I'll start with a 10m, which should both of us nicely. From there see how the upper und lower boundaries are and decide which next size would make most sense.
I have flown some kites until now (Rally, Slash, Pure, Peak, Soul, Kauper Falcon&Maverick) and I'm very excited how this one behaves. Fingers crossed it is the much-mentioned gamechanger :wink:
