I tested the 9m at the Gorge, and it is super sweet. Handles the gust incredible well with a new system called split strut wich aparentely was made for gusty winds like the those of the Gorge.
The thing is, I was riding another kite brand that day (same size) and I was doing pertty bad because it was super gusty and I wasn't use to it, UI came out and was complaining about the conditions and a couple of guys that were testing the Slingshots lend me one of they're kites....Incredible, the difference was enormous, if I had the $ I would have bought it right away. That's the only thing I can tell u. "One day with a Slingshot" :D

This is Keith from Montana Kite Sports...glad you enjoyed the 9m! You were throwing some sick 1080's that day! My email is montanakitesports@yahoo.com if you are interested in picking up a kite! Also, if you want to try out snow kiting this winter, our season starts in November!

I've never riden a Slingshot untill that day, and and that day only, I can only compare with other kitebrands I had, wich are quite a few. This guy Keith from Montana Kitesports can help you there, he's a really cool guy.
Sorry I can't help you there, all I know is about the split strut system, which aparently is something new on kite design.
Cheers

Slingshot has split sprut in the '04 too so I don't think it's new, or maybe it has the same name but it's more like a updated version?
