blade iii 4.9


i have been flyin my 3m buster for a while now and feel confident using it in high wind and love jumping/scudding etc. would a blade iii 4.9 be a good progression? i always hear about it being a lifty kite and thats what im looking for.
i could stretch my budget to the 6.6m but a little dubious that this will not give the wind range i could get out of a 4.9m!
anyone got any opinions on the blades?is the 4.9m going to be enough to get some good air?.....not straight away i must add!i do have some sense!!!!DOES THE BLADE JUSTIFY ITS PRICE TAG?have seen othe flexifoils and the build quality is outstanding compared to my buster.sorry for the long winded (haha) post. thanks in advance for your help.

blade 4.9


The 4.9 is a fantastic kite. It has a big wind range. In stronger winds, it can be dangerous if you are not an experienced flyer. It can give you huge air on windy days. I am nearly 12 stone and I have slid 15 feet on my arse and have been 8 feet in the air! It does take practise to control this beast on windy days. Start off in light winds, then go out in stronger winds as confidence increases. It is definitely worth it's price tag. Try buing second hand. A mate of mine picked up what looked like a brand spanker, complete, for 200 off ebay. I recently bought an 8.5m for just over 300. It looks like it has never been used. They normally go for about 500
