Cross country with heavy gear and ballast = nightmare! That said the boomerang 9 21 is just another league from everything else, gliding tail wind at 30:1 is something I never experienced with a paraglider before, simply amazing, although I couldn't turn tight as I usually do with the Icepeak 6 19, maybe because I was a bit conservative on the brakes and turns on the boom 9 as it's my first flight with it. Results of flying big glider with 20kg bag + 8 ballast = broken nail, dragged by strong gust, dirty my Xrated 6, hurt my foot and just managed to finish packing.
