Do you like to do yoyo based tricks?

The stronger your "yes" answer, the more weights.

Put in 3 of the 5 as a starting point. Fly it for a while and then decide which way to go, flippier or lighter wind capability.

Sharp looker there.  Smiley

Its very bright that for sure !

Bit nice all the same  Wink

Personally ... I'd start with no weights and add them on over time. I think mine only has one or two weights on most of the time.

15 to 20g is good for most kites. That's the reange I stay in on all my standrad kites. ULs any where betwwen 5 to 10g but have tried more with good results. SULs 0 to 5g and vented kites 15 all the way up to 30-35g depending on winds and what I want to do.

Nice looking kite.

When I received my Exile, I flew the kite about 5 times to get the feel with no weights. I then started adding weights. For my type of flying, I ended up using 3 weights on my STD (Nitro) and one weight on the UL.

Of course, our style of flying are probably not the same. Just flying the kite with different weights and you will find what is best for you.

Good luck, and have fun with the Exile. It is a great kite with a lot of capabilities.

King, I think I saw you post your kite on the BM forum, it's an UL correct? While neon colors aren't usually my cup of tea, I must admit it looks pretty darn nice. Start out flying your Exile with no weight, get a good feel for that, then add. I fly my UL with one weight, the 5g. seems to just help everything giving it a tad more mass, yet it's still floaty. Enjoy that kite, it's a great one!
