Sling Turbine 2011 for LW and Rpm 2012 ( 12,9 & 7 ). The Turbine literally stop flying and drop out of the sky: for me passing has never been so easy ( raley2blind, back2blind, sbend2blind, blindj., raley2wrapped and sometimes kgb and 313 but wituout landing...while with the other kites the best I can do is a blindj. with a very few % of landings).

No brainer pop tricks are hysterically easy with the 28M

Low end range is debatable

If you try to send a boost, you will be lucky to get 3' off the water.

If you rode the kite parked off a kicker with the kite at 45°, you would likely be in the air for 2 weeks.

My blue/red tube kite is for sale, if anybody wants this monstrous oddity.
PM me.
In the neighborhood of $400 with a bar, all very clean, works for me.

Been doing alot of unhooked light wind surfing with my switch nitro 14m V2 on my LF kite fish. Not only a session saver but a super good time in small waves. The nitro surfs good unhooked. For where I live it is a must have in my quiver.
