Hi Guys,

looking to get a 7 metre rpm for 20-30 knots for unhooked riding and a few boosts. Have never owned a 7 and currently just riding a 10. Any feedback would be great, is it too small to unhook on well? I am finding at 20knots I am juiced on the 10, I weigh 76kgs. Cheers

Never been on a 7m. Bro your first pop, your going to get slack for days!! It's going to blow your mind haha.
But in all seriousness I would get a 8m you will get more out of it and it will still give you a nice loop

I got a 7m Dice that I ride when I become overpowered on my 10m. I dont unhook with it. Even on the narrow setting on the bar and slow turning option on the wingtips it is still a VERY fast kite and imagine a handlepass could easily result in an accidental loop.

I'd go the 8 if you only need it up to 30 knots.
