Wondering about a vented kite?

Question

Hi , everyone..I have a B2, a Rx and a spider. At the moment I seem to be using my Spider the most due to blustery winds. It Feels like the venting helps alot with stability and smoothness of flight.....since buying my Spider I've considered buying a single vented kite? Would there be much difference in flight because of  the mesh? And size of venting?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Wiggle,

If you are looking for even more vented than a spider, I would suggest going for a Super Spider. I have 3 full sets of revs in my bag (Baressi 1.5 STD, Mid Vented and VTD) (RX STD, Spider and Super Spider) (XX STD, Tarantula and Super Tarantula) + the all new Eagle. You can pretty much consider your Spider as a Mid (single) vented, a Super Spider would be between the Full vented (double vented) and Xtra Vented (no longer available, but it's even more vented than the full vented version). I have no problems flying my RX Super Spider in 5-6 BFT wind speeds.

a single vent is commonly referred to as a "mid-vent", it would fit nicely in between your current quiver of existing kites for wind range.

For myself, I could quite happily exist with a standard, a mid vent (single vent) and an Extra vent. Mid vents are really great for 8 - 12 mph

Two Bazzers and Five Shook for me,.......

1. Zen

2. AuA indoor

3. SUL B-Pro full sail (or Phoenix Ashe)

4. 40% Shook

5. 75% Shook

6. B-2 Shook (called the CR2, only in a 75%)

7. a 135% Shook

If I absolutely had to, I could get by on a standard sail, a full vent and a roll of masking tape, as I did for a couple of years when starting out.
