Kind of funny that it has the same LE bridle that the Epic Judge has. Not really a true c kite is what some say. Hope it flys as good as it looks!

Looks like it's finally happening. However, there has been roumors about this kite for about as long as wainman hawaii has existed as a brand, so I won't believe it untill it's actually for sale.

Looks like they are going for onepump on this one, probably bc of more struts.

Looks a lot like the Fuel but with the Hadlow/Judge mini bridal. Would love to try it out though.

As a Wainman owner, i wonder how will they sell this magical one-pump system after bragging for years that no-one really needs one-pump systems which brake, complicate things, etc. etc....

... on a 3 strut design.
on kites with more struts one pump comes in handy. the guys probably realised that once they tested kite with more than 3 struts ;-)
