May want to give the Beamer line a good look (or even PKD Buster) better quality for a similiar price. The only thing I like about the Rads are that they love to fly right up to nuetral overhead, but they don't give much pull for their size.

Have to agree that the Beamer series might be good - I find they fly to the Zenith a lot better than the PKD Buster. Probably need the 5 or 7 metre for really good pull, I have the 3.6 which would be ideal for you in a reasonable wind.

I have found the radpro 6M to be a very stable and controlable kite. The wavey stitching on them is a bit of a concern, but then again I have flown the entire line of radsails under some brutal conditions, and have yet to have a problem with them failing to hold up.
I haven't flown them on a bar myself, but I was told by an Ozone rider that he had set them up on an Ozone bar and he was quite impressed with the handling of it.
The handles aren't my favorite but they are ok. And the lines aren't the best either. You do get what you pay for. Actually maybe even a bit more bang for your buck than most anything out there.
For a beginers kite, they are great. And from what I hear about the other 2 kites mentioned, they are as well.

Happy flying.

I fly an rad. 6M and 5M Both solid flyers. They are not lifty kites, witch is good for a new flyer. I find the pull to be purfect in the right wind for the right kite. I have ripped the sail. an bridle line hooked on a piece of drift wood. the outter pockets opened up, it still flew, like nothing was wrong. The repair cost $52.00. from Pro Kite Surf in Tx.

rad 6m pro


i have a radsail 6m pro. its a great kite. loads of pull will scare you as a beginner but if you take it out in light wind and build up it'll be no problem. 5-15 mph then if you want to jump 20mph will see you well in the air. i use mine on a board mostly and its always got more power than most. in very light winds it needs working to keep it up.
dont wory about build quality iev had two and no probs. eolo have now brought out a rad pro two series double stitched from inside better quality new bridle.
cant go wrong:smilegrin:

Flew the 5m Beamer at the w/e (convinvced a friend it was a good idea to buy one :D) and found it gave reasonable pull even in low wind so would definitely give me good air in anything over 10mph.

Got the Radsails Pro 2005 6mē


Hi,
I got the radsails pro 6mē 2005 and am very very satisfied!!!!!!
I read very much about the "bad quality" of the old ones, but the new a very good and stable!!!!!!
I really ripped am several times and made the experience, that they are really strong manufactured!!!

To the point of jumping watch this:

Fall Down


(sorry for the bad quality ;) )

And that was very very gusty winds

I can just recommend 'em !!!
