The Method brings out strong opinions from various riders - particularly the 12 (which you did not ask about.) Suggest you thoroughly read the pertinent threads in the review section http://www.kiteforum.com/viewforum.php?f=7 and you will see that even some owners who hated the kite in the beginning found it to be magical later. Note that it is a wave-specific kite and not intended for freestyle so if you are looking for something more versatile, the Element (in the Switch line-up) might be a better choice or something from another brand. You can also read about it on the Switch forum and decide for yourself...
I've been looking at these two kites for mainly waveriding and some wakestyle. Specifically in the 7m and 9m size. Has anybody been able to compare these back to back? Im looking for lowend, unhooking, and drift performance. Thanks!
