Re: all kite reviews are garbage. What really matters.

I have never seen a negative review from a kite mag or shop's youtube vids. Most of it seems to be marketing. It is impossible that all kites in a given size for a particular riding style are above average. Some have to be better, and some worse. For the OP, I am 190 lbs, intermediate on a twin tip,...
