In the interview, Don claims the 20 turns like the 11.5 ARX

I heard it too, but can't believe it.
If it is true, I get one as well.
But Flash told me the 16 turns like a 11.5, so I can't imagine the 20 turning a fast as the 20.

What colours should I chose on my X2s? I have told them that I wanted silver as my first choice, and red as my second. I dont want to have the blue because of hot tubes in the summer.
Is that a good choice? Does anybody have a good picture of a silver X2? Are there may be more colours out there?

The yellow looks very green in this picture. Is that really like that?
How about bleeding colours on the dark ones? Any experience there?

it looks like green indeed, but is called yellow.
No experience with bleeding colors yet.

BTW FYIY
A couple of X2-kiters allready experience colour degradition=colour getting lighter.

Also X2's that are steering more to one side as the other so not in balance.

First thing can be avoided by taking a colour like grey and not yellow.

The yellow is actually a very bright canary yellow, the picture shown is not a true reflection on the real colour.
As yet I have had no problems with bleeding colours and have had the kite exactly a month it has been stored damp overnight twice, though I can see that there may be problems with the black on the struts.
