Hello!
What's a kite that has a massive wind range if i have a 9 ..really massive like kind of makes it a 6 or 12 too..so massive i'd be completely amazed by it's massiveness of wind range&lack of stalling ;
That drifts really really well turns fast and is a bit of an allrounder and maybe boosts well. Not bothered about it's other 'freestyle capabilities'..
just such a super massive wind range that performs well within it..with such super drifting too it'd be amazing..
2012-18...earlier ok i'd just use another barlines

Looking for recommendations

Thankyou in advance

I have a mate with a 9m Edge as his only kite, when I'm struggling to stay upwind on my 12 he is out there on the 9 Edge looping it like crazy and staying upwind. When I'm over powered on my 9, he's still out there, boosting massive on his 9. Haven't actually flown the Edge myself though however I'm very impressed with my 12m Moto wind range and ability to handle gusts.

Chances are if one existed you'd know about it already. I actually saw the end of a rainbow on Ocean Reef Rd about 10 years ago but much like the kite you describe there was no Leprechaun and no pot of gold

Go demo the 7m Nexus, 7m Neo, 7m SST from Action sports see what you like first. Thats what I did, everyone is different so what suits one may not be for another.

not <2018 but demo the 2020 Ocean Rodeo Roam - very light in the air, light bar pressure - there are some 7m & 9m demo kites in WA at the moment.

I can take my 8m enduro from 10-35 knots.

I can take my 2004 Windwing Rampage 17m from 13 knots, to 14knots. Anything under that and it falls out of the sky, anything over and it drags you downwind - like a truck. But when it's 13.5 knots.....it's amazing still a C kite from 2004.
