Chosen gliders in their respective categories (UPDATE) 25/01/2017

Those gliders below will be kept for future comparison as i believe that in overall conditions they gave me the best balance between performance, efficiency, handling, climbing having the edge in their respective categories. 
It doesn't mean that they could suit every pilot need ! Every glider has it's own characteristics and every pilot has their own feel and requirement. You can find their characteristics in the B,C, comparison charts.
May everyone have safe and smiling flights  :-)  

EN-B Low aspect ratio gliders = NOVA Ion 4
EN-B with lower aspect ratio than 6 = SKYWALK CHili 4 
EN-B with higher aspect ratio than 6 = GIN Carrera Plus 
EN-C Moderate aspect ratio = SKYWALK Cayenne 5 
EN-C HIgh aspect ratio = UP Trango X-Race 
EN-D = OZONE Zeno 

Cheers,
