holy moly those things are FAST


so i took out my charger and gave it its inaugural flight today... geez i was blown away by how fast that little bugger is...

faster than any other kite ive flown, including a 7m pulse... woah...

so fast i couldnt really control it very well on a 60cm bar... i wouldve gotten my smaller bar out, but the lines are shorter on it,,, ill change them out tonight so i gan give it a proper whirl tomorrow if the conditions are the same...

if youre interested, i found the bottom end to be around 20mph and i weigh in at 200 or so... on my door it was easy peasy... on my mako 150 not so much... but that could be stance issues... which ill play with and discuss another time maybe...

anyways... ive ead it a number of times, but today i got to feel it... wow.. am amazed




WHAT I FLY:
Flysurfer Pulse 2 12m, Speed 3 21m Deluxe

WHAT I RIDE:
GI Conflict 106, OR Mako 130, Lightwave Spirit 137, Spleene Door 159

Somewhere Todd did a howto on shortening the Nav bar! Worked out great for him. Hit him up maybe he can find it right away!

Yeah, they're so fast! Can't wait to get something other than lightweight summer winds to try mine out with ... I think I've used my SA2 19 non-stop this year :(



Yeah... I got a kite. Or two...

They are way awesome, like a blend of C kite and arc. The 19 is amazing in 15 to 20mph winds. so much hangtime
