Ok i keep posting but im really not sure what kite to buy, i really know nothing.
im 75kg, and ride a BANG BowmoQ 136x43, wind speed is typacally 14kts to about 35kts.
was origonally going to get a second hand 12mtr ONE but cant any more so been looking at a new 9m, will this be good for the conditions i have and what strength is it in C-kite terms?
the options of new kite i have are:
9mtr 06 ONE
9mtr Warroo 07
9Mtr GK Trix
Thanks Ben

Give the boys at http://www.seabreezebreaks.com/  (Devon)  a call I know that they had a demo 12 One 06 for sale last week. If not the new 07 12 Ones look real sweet.

Also, once you have yourself the (new to you) 06 12m be sure to jimmy up the bridle mod that we discuss in this forum or have them bring one in for you for a small cost - Big reward.

Ben,

No problem dude, No doubt I will speak to you later about your first session and see what you think, glad you decided to go OR in the end.

Like JohnZ said, Welcome to the team.

its f***in incredible, i love it so much. You were right, first hour or so I hated it couldn’t get no where but just startd to pick up what works and by the end of the 7 hr sesh today I was as good as with my C, or just abouts couldn’t get upwind very well but it was bang onshore so was tryin’ to go very upwind to play with the depower when jumpin. Only had one problem though, the little red wire on the punch up snapped luckily only at the white knob thing next to chicken loop so hasn’t shortened it too much but i still have some XS at the top to get it back to the right length.
waitin’ to see if there are any pics and ill post when i get them.
