Should I keep this 5m?


I purchased a 17m Blade Fat Lady - didn't even realize it but it came with a free 5m Trigger.

I'm a big guy (205lbs) and live in a pretty light wind area - so I don't really see any reason to keep the kite.

I mean, aren't 5 meters for someone my weight for like 35 mph winds?

Should I sell it or keep it???

HEllpPPP:wee:

What is your usual high wind kite? If the 17M is your only choice, I'd keep the 5M,because you know the minute you ship the 5M, the wind will pick up to a steady 30+! hehehe... :lol:

Shame you didn't know about the details of the offer as it apparently allowed you to upgrade the size on the free kite.

"The Fat Lady is the most fun lightwind kite I have ever flown...... and now it is getting twice as fun.

That's right. buy a complete Fat Lady, and get a free Trigger 5m. Upgrade the free kite to whatever size you need at just $50 per meter.

As an example, if you wanted a 9m instead of the 5m, you could upgrade for just $200. Compare the savings this promotion affords and you'll be out the door with a 17m AND a 12m faster for less than other brand's charge for just 1 kite.
"

Not sure when you took advantage of the free kite, but if it wasn't too long ago and the Trigger hasn't been opened/flown, you might still be able to upgrade to a size you prefer. You may be on the hook for shipping (unless the sale was at a local brick and mortar store). Either way, something to consider and check into.

FWIW: The Trigger is available in 3M 5M 7M 9M 10M 12M 14M.

ATB,
Sam

I don't know much about the trigger but with your weight and local wind I would agree with the 12m. Good Luck! BTW I saw this deal recently in Washington at a shop. Just wondering if you are semi-local

I'll be interested in hearing how the Blade Fat Lady performs and how it compares to the Best Taboo 17 if anyone knows.
