I am trying to decide what kite to get for higher wind. Like 10-15 mph. I am looking for something that doesn't pull too hard, and tracks really well since I am not really doing tricks at that wind range. It needs to be able to take a beating.
The Widow NG tracks really well, and is a lot more precise than the E2, but I found it too much for my back in that wind range.
The E2 pull was fine, but I don't like it's tracking or precision.
I am considering the HQ Ion as it has a good higher wind rating, but I am not sure if it is good for precision or not.
First of the Gray Fades is starting to come together..Decided to use Black on LE and Black Edge binding to help frame the lighter center section in the finished sail. Since this is one of my earlier panels prior to me adjusting the pattern, I have to decide if I will leave it higher aspect ratio (i.e. shorter vertically) or add a strip of material to top or bottom to bring it to full 1.5 size... Kite is Black, Charcoal, Silver and White. Hopefully I can fly it this weekend weather permitting.
