got the chance to try out the new hadlow ID and haven't seen many reviews on it so i thought i would share my thoughts on it.
I wanted to try it out as I wanted a kite for wakestyle but without the trouble of "c" kites (relaunch). I must say flexifoil have really done a good job with this kite as this is the only hybrid I have enjoyed flying (i have tried nomad,rpm etc....)
I really like the bar pressure on the ID, not too heavy but not too light. the bar pressure was my problem with the rpm, it felt "spongy". Relaunch is also very easy, just pull on a steering line and up it goes. one thing that amazed me was the slack in the lines after you pop, since it is an SLE, I expected it to have very little slack but there was so much that I managed to land my first flat 3.
The ID was okay for boosting but I was a little under powered so I cant really comment on that, there is also plenty of pop.
The bar is simple and easy to use, it's also very grippy.
All in all it is a great kite,very user friendly but yet a great performer and would defiantly buy one if I had the cash, I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a second hand one to pop up.
I also think it is one of the best looking kite out there which is a nice bonus.
