    The b-5 in my opinion is an excellent fist snow kite. I would set it up with the brake/reverse relaunch bridle and a third line for ease of use. Let me know if

      Let me know if you have questions. I have them in stock and ready to
      fly.

      How big is the Sling Shot B5?

      I would recommend a 4-5m2 foil for winter kiting in 10-20 knots for a
      70 - 80 Kg beginner.
