I've rented a 7m Vector during my vacation in Costa Rica for 1 day in Bahia Salinas. The wind was very strong, 25 knots and gusting to 30 knots but I was able to handle the gusts well with this kite. After just one day with this kite I can say I would consider buying it as I had a great time. Very easy to setup, it turns very fast(maybe because it was a 7m) and in the same time very stable. It's easy to control the power by just using the bar. I like the new bar and the way they make the power/depower straps, they are bigger and easy to grab as you kite. I could jump very easy as the wind was strong but seems to me it doesn't have a as much hang time as my 9m Switchblade. The new valve system makes it very easy to inflate and deflate and also comes with a cover so there's no sand going in. The.color was very cool, a bright green, you can see the kite from miles. The lines look very good and strong, they are covered with a kind of wax that makes it harder to get tangled. Overall a very good kite!
