The new bags are much bigger and better. I like the new bag as much as the good old duffel types we used to get 6-7 years ago. The new Triggers are are better in every aspect I can think of, than the 2010 Triggers I was on. And I thought the 2010's were so good that I didn't think they should change anything.

I'm still looking forward to trying out the new 2012 Blade gear. I've got the 2011 Triggers right now and really enjoy riding them, but I'm somewhat looking forward to trying out the new primes more. Just because I hear they are a tad bit easier to do unhooked tricks on.

Here's a video I found of the 2012 9m Trigger, I can't find a video of the prime.


a vid of the prime...it looks like it can really whip you around

i´ve got the fat lady, trigger 2011 and and the prime 2012

horses for courses and i love the 2011 bags, not so much the 2012s!

bag is just a bag and where i think blade should improve is on the bar, sub-par when i look to others.

still getting used to the prime, just a couple of days on it but definitly is not a easy plug and play kite as the trigger, at least not for me but then i´m just a wk-end-lousy-rider. I find k-loops easier on the prime, un-hook my arms are not pulled from my shoulders and got more time to hook back in, everything else the Trigger feels better/easier.

on a last note i think the fat lady to be a fantastic kite, don´t think i will ever sell it.

That website still needs some work, the one vid is not working, I don't like that the when you tried to read more about the kite text goes behind the vertical nav bar, keep in contained and it should give access to previous kites, manual, etc..
