Sizes used: 12m
I have the 12, it feels very light and responsive in the air, it has the power of a 13-14m kite, but also depowers to the range a 12 would be good in. This huge wind range is the main reason I like it. Other positives: very stable, fast turning, easy easy relaunch, and boosts great because the depower is so effective you can hold your edge while sending the kite, then sheet in and get massive lift up, with long hang time. Drifts extremely well when riding at the kite, better even than some kites marketed for this trait. It also goes upwind awesome. I ditched my kahoona 13.5 in favor of this kite. Not to mention it packs up super small for traveling which is nice. Negative: it flaps when depowered which may wear it out faster than kites with more struts, but I have no actual evidence to support this. All around SICK KITE.
