Just got my new Widow Maker set... Std & Ul. One thing for sure I can not fly my UL in 2 mph wind. I often get great wind off the Lake. It is steady and smooth. Regardless of the speed of the wind.
My UL struggles at 2 mph. on 100' #100 lines.... So I switch to my 75' 50# lines and attach my Ocius Sul and continue to fly. It Loves 1-4 mph wind. When the air is thick and not moving...It is time for the INAK .... 75' 50# lines. If you have wind problems ............. like the lack of... then you need a SUL. The Pro Dancer by Skyburner does not trick as much as the Ocius Sul. It fly's old school. Steady,sharp turns,flat 540's. I like it but would sell it in a minute. Meaning this. I fly my Ocius Sul a lot. I fly the Pro Dancer once in a while with Devin. It is a beautiful kite to fly... More tricks with a Ocius Sul. You can do a 360 with it.
Also check your bridle. Sky burner kites adjustment is all the way down on bottom knot for gathering more wind. On top to loose wind. I think some kites are the opposite ??
Flying my Widow Maker UL all the way down causes some over steer. So I avoid it. Second knot up.
Bottom Line .... Get a Ocius Sul if you want a real super light kite. Also an INAK is fantastic in zero wind Muggy thick humid air. It is a blast to fly. I might of posted some thing in March during the hot week we had. I'll check If not I'll check for footage.
Shorter lines and lighter lines do make a difference. The Sul and Inak ............
"... Hey what cha doin' ? I 'm flying a kite. "...No way your gonna fly no wind...".
I love hearing these words. Been at the Beach more than once and have had guys ask me this.
The only thing I can tell you or anyone is these conditions at the Beach are consistent. I practice for hours in low winds. Nothing worse when the wind quits. Be Prepared ...
spend the dough. INAK is under $100. DO NOT FLY ABOVE 1 mph wind.
AND MOVE >>> A LOT > BACKWARDS A LOT
