53994Re: Advice on Rhino
- May 19, 2002hi paul,
i would definitely recomend a toro as opposed to a rhino. i
used my 10m toro for the first time yesterday and was stoked with its
flying abilities. it seemed to do everything the rhino does but
better. it had amazing power whilst being easy to control in the
gusts. it was super responsive but not too fast in the air (as i
found the 9.3m rhino to be. apparantly the toro is better at both
ends of the sizing scale with the big ones turning quicker than the
big rhinos. the team riders are also now riding toros as a
competition kite. this kite will surely also have better relaunch
capabilities to help u progress with minimal time swimming. i also
noticed that i went upwind easier and jumped with alot more pop
especially in transitions with this kite as opposed to the rhino.
i think this kite has more benifits for most people than the super
high aspect X2 and ive flown both.

need another kite but just cannot make my mind up. Thought I had
narrowed it down to a Rhino or Free air. Now I am not sure.
