I have recently gotten into kiting. More specifically power kiting. It all started with buying the kid a Prism Bora 5 while on vacation earlier this year. I had played around with two line stunt kites years ago and still own a couple but they are in a different state in a storage unit. I ended up ordering myself a couple foils a couple months ago and am now addicted. Started out with a Snapshot 1.2 and a Synapse 170. Flew those a little and ordered a Tantrum 250 immediately. Order a Peter Lynn Hype in 1.9 and 2.6 because I was reading about the quality. I have now purchased 6 foils in two months. Really caught the bug when I went to the coast of Lake Erie and after flying foils about 3 times prior I attempted the Tantrum for the first time. Winds were 15-20mph with higher gust and that was such a rush. After telling my wife someone else must have been flying kites earlier because of the foot drag marks in the sand. She then tells me those were my drag marks. I'm 255lbs and I didn't even notice the kite pulling me but new it was really tugging. The first thing out of my mouth was I want a bigger one.
Now to my Tensor question. I have found an unreal deal for a Tensor 3.1 and 5.0. The average wind near where I live is very high (15-25 steady winds frequently) and the med sized foils I currently own can really give me a workout. I know the Tensor is gonna produce more power and was wondering if the 5.0 would just be to much to play with at my skill level. What is your opinion? Leaning towards the 3.1.
