Many of my friends have this f-one and love it. It's probably go 2 intakes, while the newer ones have 4, for faster inflation.
If it's your first kite, what's not to love for $300?
The price almost sounds too good to be true!
Under the worst of circumstances, it could be your favorite winter(snow) kite!
I weight just under 200 lbs and would be surprised if you could get planing on less than 12 mph w/the 7.0.
I say, go for it!!!
Thanks Phil, I ve gotten mostly negative or I should say, cautionary responses on this kite. Sounds like if it were a 9.0 it would be a no brainer at thatMessage 1 of 3 , Sep 18, 2001View SourceThanks Phil, I've gotten mostly negative or I should say, cautionary
responses on this kite. Sounds like if it were a 9.0 it would be a
no brainer at that price, unless damaged of course. Anyway, I've
talked and written to some folks who say I'd be better of with a much
bigger, more controlable, 4-liner, inflatible...? I'm gonna look for
used, (in excellent condiditon) wips, naish, even 1120 and bigger
Arc's. Wanted to get everyone's opinions again on what kites I
should be most considering. Again, my info: 200 lbs. nice shallow
water, consistent 5-20 mph winds, no surfing to start, will be
getting a Bic board probably in a couple months, until then,
skidding, jumping, water-dragging; to get more used to big kite
flying, even though I am now an excellent stunter.
BTW, I am in Fairfield, CT and fly right down on the beaches and
sandbars by the old Penfield Lighthouse. Myself and a few others,
John, Enzo and Lane fly there on Arc's, Mosquito's and Naishes.
Any help from anyone is greatly appreciated!
Thanks again all, Scott.
