In Topic: Blast vs. Shockwave/Supersonic?

The Supersonic is fast and generates quite a bit of pull as the wind speed picks up. It is my understanding it is slightly smaller than the Shockwave. The Supersonic has a little less pull and more speed, at least in turning if not forward and reverse too.

Beyond that I can't help you much. Would guess both are faster and less pull than a Blast.

The Supersonic does awesome inverted side slides. It's like an arrow screaming across the window inches off the ground. My body can't tolerate a lot of pull, so I fly the Rev 2 mostly for some speed without too much pull. The Supersonic might be faster in forward and reverse than a Rev 2, with no doubt about it being faster in inverted side slides.

PS: Flying a Rev 2 on 50' lines in over 15 - 20 mph wind is a rush; normally use 85' lines. Switch to a vented Rev 2 above that. The Rev 2 gets from point A to point B in a blink. Can't imagine doing that with a Supersonic, half a blink and scud marks!!!!


I have all 3, my favorite is the supersonic, 70 mph fast, the shockwave is about the same speed but pulls more; The Blast really pulls hard but I think it's slower, with a 1/4 inch leading edge flys well in light winds. If interested you should check out GONE WITH THE WIND SWAP Meet. I have a Shockwave & a Blast for sale. Good Sailing John

No , not my snake, his owner brings him to the bay for a walk. Also it stimulates him for dinner that's waiting at home, a " Pesky Wabbit".
