Title: 20 grams extra on the tail!
Post by: Bob D on November 23, 2009, 05:59 AM
I saw what a difference the Deep Space weight did for JimB's xt.s and tried it on my Nirvana HW. The wind was maybe 10-14 and it really made a difference! I was able to pitch it so much easier than without the weight! It did much nicer cascades and the flic flacs were much easier.

The weight is nice because it's a long velcro weight that attaches to the keel. I only flew it for an hour at lunch on Friday but it made the HW a much easier kite to trick.

I don't think I had the DS weight in the XT.s.  :-\

I did, however, have it in your Next Up Team.

But neither here nor there; I'm sure it would help you to get the HW to pitch.

Glad you are getting on with the HW.

You're right. It was the Next Up. I flew so many kites that day I couldn't remember which was which. I have to say that the xt.z was fun though!
