Sorry, don't have a good knowledge of the Speed or power kites, so we'll wait for others to jump in, but I don't think the Shockwave or Supersonic are different sizes!! Different performance parameters, but I believe the size is the same!! The Blast is a bit bigger yet! I would suggest you check out the product line on the home page and make some notes on the different models, size, speeds, wind ranges, etc, etc....!! All good basic info!!! Should help you at least get an idea!!!
Oh yes, believe me, I have looked at the info pages! I knew I could count on the forum membership to make that correction! ( lest I seem petty!)
Thanks for the info everyone. I think I will go with the Supersonic(unless I find a really good deal on a blast or shockwave!). Is there anybody that prefers the Shockwave?
I already have a 1.5B standard, which is great. Then I went on to get a 1.5B full-vent 'black rainbow', because I was afraid of a situation where the wind would be strong, but I would be afraid to fly my standard sail for fear of breaking spars and whatnot. Probably should have got a midvent, because the times I have tried to use the full-vent, it's very slow, and I can barely get it in the air. Still waiting for that really strong wind...
Anyways, I'm sure I keep buying kites in the future, but one of the double-vertical spar Rev kites seems like something I need to have asap!
Thanks for the thorough review, Kent,
And FortFlyer, I will take you up on the invite. I noticed you are the only other MA kiter on the member map!
