Still need some help on my second size? 8 or 9m
So I got in a full day of demoing the 2012 razor 12m.
I was riding my Mako King the whole day.
winds avg 19-23kt gusting to 29kt
I was on the fusion bar. About 8-10” trim.
Kite settings medium turn. More depower. Rigged on lower knot on steering lines.
It was gusty with some big holes in locations.
I was having trouble getting the kite to behave. I was struggling with the gusts and kite.
Had a bar problem so had to come in.
Winds avg 20-24kt gusting to 31kt
On a different fusion bar with about 8” trim.
Changed kite settings to medium steering. More depower. Rigged on upper knot on steering lines.
It was stronger but less gusty with no big holes in the wind.
The kite behaved much more for me this time. Or I was getting used to the kite.
It was an excellent session. I had a lot of fun. The kite worked very very well. Big smile…
On the big gust I was well powered but never felt overpowered but close.
Wind avg 17-21kt samoset slight gusts.
riding the same fusion bar with 2-3” trim.
same kite settings as session 2.
The kite worked great. Started doing some tight dowlooping carving transitions. Powered going in and powered coming out of the transition.
I’m really liking this kite I think it would be go to kite for most of the winds we get.
1. How much trim will the 2012 razor handle and still fly well?
2. With the above information can any one suggest a size for my high wind kite? I’m having trouble deciding on 9 or 8m? I’m. Worried an 8m might be too much gap from a 12m and not give me enough powered unless it’s nuking out.
Thanks to any one for any help they might be able to give me.
