Good job Blade and Elan. :thumb: That really looks like well well made board. It look like it does have some nice channels on the bottom.
I find blade board sizes a bit off. I rode 44cm wide board before and i had a lot of problems with edging even with my big foot. How wide are the stances on the board?

Otherwise it looks like nice nice product. :thumb: :thumb:

Really like the new web site.
Seeing more and more Blade out there, after 6 years they should be playing with the big boys.

Their kites just really fly well. Faster turning than most everything else in the sky.
Stable as hell. And they juuuuuuuuuummmmmppppp!!!!!
They are lesser known in the United States (so far) because they are based out of Israel, but now that Blade USA is here, .......it's on :thumb:

Spent about 30min on the Prime (the one with the angry godish like man printed on it) and had a blast.
First time i try a Blade kite and was surprised how fun it was.

spent about 4-5hrs today on the 138 sanchez and 7m & 9m Triggers. Talk about Kick Ass board and kites. If you have been sitting back thinking about trying the new 2012 blade gear definatly get out there and try them out.

Hi guys,

Can someone comment on the bar feeling of the trigger 12m please.
I know that they are supposed to be fast kites, but are they direct (you pull, kite turns immediately without delay)?
Is the bar pressure in freestyle setting comparably light to a Naish Park 2011?
If you would need to compare the Naish Park 2011 12m and the Trigger, which one has better low-end? Better high-end? Is faster flying?

Thanks a lot :thumb:

Bar pressure is light, not without feel and knowing where the kite is. These kites turn really fast, no hesitation, very engaged feeling. Three strut, medium aspect, so good low end but not a Kahoona, Evo grunt bucket. The top end is fantastic on these kites and they jump great. Turning is midway between tip and center so it ends up being an all arounder. Not a center pivotal surf kite turn but not a wingtip power turn, these are right in between. Makes for a fast, friendly kite.
