Tested a brand new 14m² Rally today in about 13 knots on flat water. I'm a hefty 205lb and stayed upwind easily on a 140cm board. It has loads of low end grunt that comes on progressively. The kite is super stable; I tried to make it overfly me while standing still, but it just sat there at neutral without a problem. It boosts when sent hard and floats. Turns quickly enough to loop when you need it to. I'm an too old to get brave, so I never dropped the kite to test the relaunch. The bar is nice and the swivel works fine, but the below the bar depower dangles obtrusively when depowered.
