Need help about using speed to trick SUL kite:
Some low wind kite are trick slow some very fast..... Any rules about that....

Trick SUL kite has to be trick slow. OK.

But indoor kites which are even ligher then trick SUL kites are trick fast. See down Tristan's video. Thanks

We say that trick SUL kites has less weight and must do trick slow.
OK but indoor kites run fast into the tricks with less weight.
Does it mean that trick SUL kite (like Fearless SUL for example) can be flown fast as indoor trick kite, like on this video:

I would put the speed down to short lines and a GREAT pilot.

In my hands im sure this SUL would be moving slow.  Cheesy

There is no absolute.

It all comes down to the particular kite and the skill of the pilot. I can trick my own UL at lightning speed in very light wind, because I know the kite inside and out.
