being light (75kg) on a beamer 130

hi all,

i'm about to buy a secondhand beamer 2 which comes in only one size: 130kg
i'd fly with around 75kg and i wonder if anyone has experience with being light on a rogallo reserve. could it be a (not so) funny endless ride in places like organya (lots of lifty air) and canaries (strong wind)?

actually maybe even a regular square reserve (what i have now) could cause trouble if needed in strong wind. i fly alot at the coast..

any info or advice is welcome!

Hi - I've thrown the beamer twice at 70kg.I thought the landing wasn't even very soft and I was happy to have the big size. Of course if the lift is strong enough you might find otherwise!
