Default 2008 12m Ion 2 for sale. 500

I have had this kite about 6 months, ridden it ten times max.
It is in very good condition.

It's just not the right kite for me. Too much overlap with my 9m Waroo on it's top end and just a so-so light wind kite. I am going to get a kite that is more well suited for light wind (lighter, faster).

This is a very nice kite. Okay... enough spiel...

The color is the same as in this pic (pic is of an Atom though)



Price is $500 for kite only (with original bag, never used).

Is it an Atom or an Ion?? Your pic shows an Atom.

I am sure he just didn't read it. Funny though.

I hopped on the Flexi site and linked to the first kite I saw with the same color scheme.

Nope. Not getting the HPs. I just don't like this kite (for my style and situation). There is way too much overlap at my size with the waroo 9m is the main problem.

I THINK i read next years Warroo's will also have Twister-Tech.

Id like to demo your Ion if thats OK Scott...hopefully it turns faster than an 08' 13M warroo. Yesturday i tried Rob H's 08' Warroo 13m and it felt like a blimp to me.....i could not get it to dangle me in 12-15mph.....its prolly just me becouse i saw Rob jump it 8 ft the same day.

I would say they are the same speed, maybe the Flexi is slower.
Bottom line Phil... it's a med/big guy's medium wind kite, imo, not a lighter guy's light wind kite. I don't think its for you.
The 12m Hyper type is more along your lines, imo.
Didn't you buy one off Rob at one point?

Feel free to demo it, but I wouldn't even consider it, if I was you.
