I've been riding a one board 2 kite quiver for a long time... I start riding from about 13knots+ I haven't reached the top end yet.

2005 fuels, 9m and 13m and a 122cm Caution Redline board. All works out for me.

But, I do want more low end... so I'm looking for a good kite for low end. I don't want it to overlap my 13m fuel too much though, that one is my favorite kite. So, I'm trying to decide between kites, and I won't buy something without one-pump(I'm lazy). So, it's between the Ion (I really don't want a bow) and a Machine 17.5.

That's whenever I get money though :lol:
2006 cabrinha contra 17 meter will do you wonders.

that kites amazing.

The Cabrinhas look expensive... at least from what I've seen/heard. The flexifoil doesn't look too bad, but even then I bet I can get a 17.5 machine cheaper.

Agreed man... hence why I buy my kites a year old. New, never used, but a year old.
