Whats the word on the flexi foild storms? I've been looking around for a review but can't find one. I see conflicting reports on there ar - some say it low, but on the flexi site they rate the 16 at 6.5 which is pretty high isn't it? it's all so confussing...
Kite companies have different ways of measuring aspect ratio. Some use leading edge length by cord, some leading edge by area, and maybe some other ways too. Just look at some pictures and judge for yourself. I think there is confusion about what is high aspect. Some kites are what I would call freaky high, then some are high, and then we have medium and low. The freaky high aspect ones can fold and twist into knots during really bad crashes. The Storm is not freaky high.
