Talk me about your Supersonic/Shockwave
Posted 17 July 2012 - 09:09 AM
I've readed about them here and on kitelife, looked at some videos but hardly can make my mind between those two... i don't think i'll ended up with 2 of the speed series so i want to choose wisely.
Supersonic: less pull, but how much? Vented option that i think it's cool. More controlable than the SW?
Shockwave: maybe to much pull??? Prettier than the SS!!

In the vented models both will need more wind to stay airborne without too much effort. This is something you should consider depending on the prevailing winds in your area.
In the end, the one which looks better to you will thrill you more.

Thinking more about that today and i'll choose the Supersonic vented. I want something vented since those speed kites crave for higher winds and i can access big wind beside a big river here and vented seems to make thing easier.
No need for more input, i make my mind but if someone want to share his/her supersonic/shockwave experience, it can be great!
And looking more at them on photos and videos(black-gold), i think they are the kites who look the most Darksided and classy at the same time... at first look i don't like their look but on videos they look great!! Surely greater in person!
So my second rev will be a Gold-Black Batkite...

The review is, of course, IMHO.... If you haven't made up your mind yet, check it out.

Run a "trick line" all the way around the edge so it's less likely to snag a knot when you are flicking it inside out. (see Blast photo as a reference) The supersonic does this trick as fast as you hands can impact the sail. WAY cool. You'll be doing "drilling action" balanced on one wing tip, or flipping it in quarter turns timed to your music. Most dramatic of all the dive stops, a killer side slide that looks like you've been doing it for decades. Twitchy? You bet and that's the joy of flying it precisely. Man up, practice the precision figures after shaking out the dust with flailing action.
You'll love the vented one, but will need some fairly decent, steady (dare I say BIG?) wind before it scares you.

I already feel big fun await me...
Also thanks for the tips on "trick line" great idea!!
And looking forward for some hearth pounding moment seating my back on big wind
