2012 Slingshot Misfit

The 2010 was super rigid, difficult in the chop and unforgiving on the knees. (For me anyway). Got rid of mine after 2 weeks and bought a NHP. Perhaps they have addressed these issues on the 2012???

Re: f one bandit 5 suitable for noob?

Yeah the bandit 5 is definitly suitable for a beginner is well. It is an extremely rounded kite and good at every thing. very stable, loads of hang time. Its very predictable and easy to use. It is capable of extreme performance if flown hard but is very well manered and will alow you to progress v...

The 5's look awesome. Just a shame that I have recently bought a pair of 4's.

Re: Ear Plugs?

I would like to order a pair of the Docs but have never had to measure the size of my ear hole before! :?

So many sizes, is it simply a case of pick a size and hope for the best?

Re: 2011 F-One Airlite Bar - Rant

Lets see what the future brings???????????????????????? I am not holding my breath. I have ordered the best 4 line bar...

Re: 2011 F-One Airlite Bar - Rant

Sell your bars and buy some slingy ones if they are what you like. I never get why experienced kiters dont mix kite and bar brands, its fine as long as you have the correct attributes need. Unlike the Slingy's the trim knots are on the Airlite bar and not on the kites. I will need to loan a Slingy ...

Re: 2011 F-One Airlite Bar - Rant

Yeah, I would be happy to pay £150 -£200 for that bar. Looks good, like you say very similar to that of the F-One Bar - most probably better. Yesterday I dinged the rail of my beloved 5'6 SpiderBomb surfboard with the end of the Bar. Probably would not have been so bad if it had soft spongy bar ends...

Advice please

Hey Gavin You are doing well! Yup, turn kite first and follow, always keeping tension in the lines, it's all about timing. You need to be aggressive turning the kite in the light stuff. The key is keeping the kite powered so it does not back stall. I do downloops when it is really light winds. Just ...

Re: 2011 F-One Airlite Bar - Rant

Sorry for the late response. Walking the woofer created a thirst which had to be quenched with a ice cold beer...... hmmmmm beer........ which then had to be subdued with a light meal and more beer....... Wow, I see much similarity between the Takoon and F-One Bar. Is the F-One simply a rebranded Ta...

Re: 2011 F-One Airlite Bar - Rant

Not much help to you though here is some empathy. I'm using Takoon Chrono, I love the kites though same as F-One the bars are way behind. Sort of, "spoiling the ship for a bit of tar". I haven't had any problems or failures and at £150 the Takoon bar for 2011 has a good line set. Velcro c...
