Yeah well.... I've placed an order for a custom WM UL 2 days ago !
With all the good things I've read on that kite.... and since I don't really have the chance to try other people's kite before buying one, I tought it would be a safe bet.
Also, I wanted to try a different kite than my friend's so we can get to experience more different kites.
I went for UL instead of STD because in general, winds are more propitious to my Air Wave UL than my Frenezy.
And in late day, wind tends to get slower. (I usually end the day with my Air Wave Zero.)
... And if the wind gets a bit too intense for the WM UL,
then I'm sure my Frenezy will be happy to take it from there!
Btw, you're right about wind speed... it's all approximations.
Regarding the P-100 lower spreaders on my friend's Ocius, I know he broke some rods in the past 2-3 years so maybe at a time the shop didn't have 3PT in stock and then he bought some P-100 instead...
(It's a supposition, I'm not sure about the true reason).
The Ocuis UL can fly in higher wind than the WM UL as it is a smaller kite.
I understand he logic of this, but then would you know why on Sky Burner's website they advertise the wind range of Ocius UL at : 1 mph. to 10 mph... and the WM UL at : 2 mph. to 12 mph. ?
Would there be a stronger frame on the WM UL ?
Or maybe you've tried both kites and you know by experience that Ocius UL can handle stronger winds?
