I might, just might, be so unbelieveable lucky, that I have opportunity to buy a new kite soon. I have the Talon UL, and I am extremely satisfied with it. It gives me great joy, it really does.
Now, there is a lot of very appealing kites on the market, but I really like my Talon UL, so why not go for another. Not UL, offcourse. I fly the UL as much as I can, but feel that it is at itīs best, below 8mph. I fly it even when it picks up, but when it gets above 12mph, it simply is not as much fun.
Then itīs a good thing, that there are two more Talons, in Marks line-up. The vented and the standard. But if
the opportunity arrises, which one to get ? I read a lot of good things about them both. The vented should be a fun flyer, even in low winds (for a vented kite that is), and is rated up to 30mph. That should keep me covered, seriously doubt that I would ever go flying in 30+mph.
Would a set of UL and vented, leave a big wind-strenght gap where neither of them is really fun to fly ? Would I be better of getting a STD ? Also in this equation is the fact, that I soon will recieve another very nice kite (MB Customs Webbed Synthesis), in the STD windrange.
Itīs not a Talon, but have heard good stuff about it. And it is real prrrreeeettyyyy..... Not Talon-pretty, but equally pretty, just in another way. Yes, I am not oblivious to how a kite looks. I mean, hey, I chose a Talon for my first really expensive kite.
Would appreciate the oppinions and inputs from you. To sum it up :
Got an Talon UL. If I can buy one
more Talon, what would give me best coverage, wind-strength-wise :
1 - Talon UL and Talon STD
2- Talon UL and Talon vented
3- Talon UL and sometthing completely different (what and why, if you please)
