Would a rush pro 250 lift me

by Tina

I have never used a power kite ( and really haven't used any kind of kite since I was a kid). I am 125 lbs and pretty fit (though not a gym every week kind of person). I would like a power kite that can give me a good pull, but I don't want to be lifted much. I may be comfortable if it lifted me a foot or so but I don't want to become a balloon and end up 5 feet in the air. Would a Rush PRO 250 lift me too much (meaning beyond a foot or so)? Would a Rush 200 be better? I like the idea of a third "break" line. It just sounds safer. Help! It's for Christmas, so I don't have long to decide.

Nope, you're good to go.

Hi Tina,

Thanks for your question. As with all kite related questions, it's not possible to give a concrete answer without knowing what wind you're going to fly the kite in...

That said, you're fine with the Rush PRO 250. It is unlikely that the kite will pick you up in the air because it is so small. There are times that it might happen, but those are extreme instances (tornadoes, dirt devils, insane winds, very gusty conditions, etc...). Stay away from conditions like that, and you should be fine.

And you're right that the 3rd line is convenient. I would definitely go with that option since the kite is so much more convenient.

Have a great Christmas!
