I would say Ozone C4:
- good in the loops
- much power in the loops
- direct steering (no pulleys)
- it's a fast kite and good in the waves
- the parked power is also good

Fone Bandit6 :!:
It's an amazing all arounder.

If you get to demo one you'll replace your other kites as well

Hi,

I'm looking for a fun ~10m kite that fits between my 2010 8m RPM and 2011 12m OR Rise. I'm 82kg (180lbs).

Main criteria:
- Should loop nicely (similar to RPM or better)
- For tricks that need to be finished off with a loop (darkslide or handplant kiteloop backroll), the kite should generate good power in this kind of late loop to finish the trick (my 12m Rise fails at this)
- Should perform decent in waves (strapless wave usage about 25%, rest is twin tip in choppy to flat water conditions)
- Unhooked: Decent unhooked performance for simple tricks is a plus, I don't care about things like line slack (don't attempt handle passes)
- I prefer it if the kite has power on demand when parked versus having to fly it actively to generate power
- Prefer direct steering without too much delay

Any recommendations?

Wainman hawaii punch is 10.5m , and meets all your chriteria.

give a try in the Blade Trigger 2013, or 2012, they are great kites, and do all that!!!

You might want to read hese reviews coming from the seabreeze forum

One guy was saying :
Quote:
"All in all for a wave kite this kite just got better . Please try and I'd like to see your thoughts . 10 years of buying every sling shot out there and I'm never going back , this kite seems like an advanced rpm with added range at both ends , try and enjoy .


The Bandits 6 are really nice kites; I really love them: so smooth you can kite for hours and hours.
