Which Kite to Chose?

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to kite flying and I'm looking at getting either the Flexifoil rage 4.7 or the Prism Snapshot 2.5. I weigh 235lbs. Which kite would give me the most pull? I don't care for the tricks I just want to be pulled around and have fun skidding. Let me know, please. Thanks.

Rage 4.7 will give you far more pull since it is sized in square meters.. the Snapshot is a Sport size.

Give this topic a good read please. it will give you a ton of information


Here a 2.2 Sport size laying on top of a 4M Power kite.

Absolutely hands down the RAGE is a little tractor. But...I would suggest you consider a slightly smaller size for your first Power kite. Maybe a 3.5
