Is there any reason why you want to stay with a bridled kite over a C-kite? I rode Rpms for a couple of years and transitioned to fuels after.

Nothing IMO, compares to flying a c-kite. They give you power on demand, like a car with a more responsive throttle.

It doesn't take long at all to become comfortable with them either. The only downside is that you may have to get one more to fill your quiver, if you don't ride many different styles.

Ie. I have a 7, 9 and 13. If my 13 is too much for wake style riding and the nine is not quite enough, I know I can have a great session with my 9 and strapless surfboard. Remarkably my fuels are awesome in surf and drift very well.

If its a megaloop day, the fuel is tha tits!

I ride the same quiver lol.

To the OP question. You will not get a kite that loops like a C. A c will pull you all the way thru the loop where as a bridal kite gives a big yank then nothing. Don't be afraid of C's they have more range now and relaunch just fine. The stigma from the old days of when they were death traps still holds till this day even though they are safe.
