LOL thing is the ozones are like tantra sex....not the north wham bam thank you mam..We get all old Pete and those Ozones won't have prostitutes knocking at your door...
well ...heres the bombshell................no.... will be heading out on edges ! demoed some and just loved it silly big jumps and fast mowing the lawn (i'm getting old)C4's then
ok may as well stick my thoughts out there:
i have over my kiting career mostly (70%) been on norths (05,06,11,12) others revs,fuels,hi fi comps and the odd naish ,caution,and airush.
I eagerly waited the first blurb on the 2014 vegas and when the 1st pix surfaced about 3-4 weeks ago i was just horrified by the big "v" and just imo awful colours.
i know i know i hear you say its only graphics and colour ways but thing is I have to look at them, have to ride them whilst people point and go "errrrrr"
yeah i know its the performance that counts but heres my second thoughts:
i read the blurb about trailing edge tightening giving more power, less stall, better looping etc and then watched a few videos and my gut feeling is the vegas has been hardened up to make it the top competition kite in norths range so it competes with the fuels,torches, hi fi x,hadlows and razors loosing some of its user friendiness ............I MAY BE WRONG but it was just a thought on my part.
the bar form north is one of the best but i still suffered terribly with wear on the red line and depower rope (yes i washed it every time) it now has lots of plastic clips and bits to adjust everything...more to go wrong ..dunno ?
the ozone bar is super simple with decent lines and a covered depower rope.
also if i'm honest i only play at the unhooking stuff , i'm never going to master it i'm too old, i am very much keen on what the young'uns call old school so decided that the edge would probably suit me better for big jumps, high rotations, board offs, going fast etc...
also with the choosen the quiver on the way i should have the biggest wind range of all the quivers i looked at and also rather extravagantly a huge overlap between each kite...sweet spot every time. 8)
it had been suggested to me via here on a couple of other kites and one of them the north dice looks very interesting..but i would prefer to watch the year unfold on the 1st edition of this kite and see how it evolves next year.........maybe one for the future ?
if i get the chance one day to try a 2014 vegas i will and if its any good it'll be me crying like a baby packing edges away after taking pictures of them to put on flea bay..
Having seen a 2014 Vegas in the air, I can confirm it looks freakin tasty.Mr X wrote:Those graphics are truly truly disgusting.

Not as nice as the 2013 C4 though
