I'm in search of a new kite... Since I just moved from an area where the
pre*** wind was in the under 5 mph range, I have a nice one-off
ultra-light for those conditions. Now, get to deal with winds that are
usually in the 10-15+ mph area. I realize that high wind kites are not as
*** as the sul/indoor ones, but it looks like I need one :) I'm not
concerned with "precision" abilities... "tricking" is important... slower
forward speed is better (I'm not looking for a 4' wing that zips all over
the place, slow and graceful is more my thing) and I'd rather not be
attached to something that pulls like a truck... I looked through the
review FAQ and only saw 1 or 2 vented kites listed, anybody want to share
some thoughts on some others? Is there a kite out there that is "the"
For some reason, I'm also thinking about a quad for high wind situations
(okay, I'm thinking about getting a quad, and I'm thinking about getting a
high wind kite, so if these two goals could be combined, that would be
nice on the wallet) The Synergy Deca's are appealing to me... do they
hold together in strong winds?
So, what's the high wind thought (dual and quad)?
