Rev 1.5 SLE Versus Shockwave

27 July 2013 - 10:21 PM

Hey guys!

 

I have the Rev 1.5 SLE, but I want to go a little/much faster...

 

I was thinking about getting the Shockwave as my next kite.

 

May I ask, all things being equal (same wind speed), between a Rev 1.5 SLE and a Shockwave, how much faster would a Shockwave be?

 

Just want to get a quick mental picture of how a Shockwave would fly compared to a Rev 1.5 SLE.

 

Have 1.5 SLE. Vs. B-Series Vented. More Stable?

I currently have the Rev 1.5 SLE.


I have seen others using the B-Series Vented and they seem to be MUCH more precise and stable.


I know it could be a matter of skill and experience.

 

But, would a B-Series Vented be more stable and precise (instead of twitching and being very hard to "hover")?

 

Basically, I find it very hard to "hover" sideways and to go up and down while the kite is horizontal.


When I slide up and down while the kite is horizontal, it moves in a 45 degree angle up and down instead of straight up and down sliding.

 

Any advice is much appreciated.


Have 1.5 SLE. But... not as stable/precise as I would like. How about B Series vented...
