Wow...definitely pulls hard!
I was lucky enough to get this kite from a forum member and it's now the largest kite I have to date. First test flight was this afternoon and I had no idea what to expect other than to hold on.FUN! Stayed out of the power window for the majority of time just getting used to it, looking forward to more flights and sharing the experience with my friends!
I've been kind of on a roll these past few months after flying a smaller 60" foil I bought almost 2 years ago that has just been sitting around. I finally brought the kite out when I mentioned it to a friend and we had a blast with it on a windy day. I knew immediately I made a mistake of neglecting it and also I wanted to try the Prism kites I had looked at before. So I purchased the Prism Tantrum 250
as a gentle increase in size since the smaller kite seemed to get a nice pull in high wind and wasn't sure what to expect from a larger foil. The Tantrum 250 was perfect for me and was a nice increase in pull while still being pretty maneuverable but of course slower. Looks fantastic compared to the cheap foil I had before and then I purchased a couple tails for it which are really fun as well and look great. Prism Tube Tail 75ft
PRISM TENSOR SERIES
I was excited to try the next level up and purchased the Prism Tensor 3.1
. However at the same time I came across the larger Tensor 5.0 for sale used and thought why not try both! So yesterday I had my very first experience with flying a 4 line kite and both of them are much larger than anything I have ever flown. I'm still getting used to having so much control over the brake lines and the 3.1 brakes lines need to be loosened as just a little movement activates them. Having a lot of fun and trying to stay safe in the gusts I get coming off the hills here. Great workout with my forearms burning like crazy.
