I've got VMG 18/13 and 9m. Tested two bigger ones.C Johnson wrote:looks like a Crossbow LW to me with a different bar and bridle.
Comparing with the CB LW 2012 - new VMG is a different beast despite it looks similar from a distance for some. Not for me anymore! I do not want to go in details yet but the feeling is superb!
The 18m flies like it would be 4sqm smaller but creates mad power. Very, very light on the bar. I was snowkiting with winds 4kts. All Flysurfers including 21m were dead on the lake and I was riding like a mad shouting "Run! VMG, run!" Unbelievable feeling: riding alone on the lake during a snowkiting competition with 2 dozens kites grounded around. It was dead simple to keep it flying. I thought that CB 2012 was already ideal one in this field. I was wrong...
Vid from the comp:
There is a topic with pictures comparing CB2012 13m and the same size VMG. You can see the differences in construction. Use google translator if wish to read details.

Question to Cab Driver.
I checked the bridle of CB and VMG. Looks like the same lengths of each line.
Can I remove all blocks on the front line bridle in CB2012?
I think it should work giving faster response to CB LW, correct?
BTW: thanks for the great racing machine finally. It's a pity that Cabrinha put on hold their racing programme 2 years ago. Shame on you, Cabrinha! I will never forget it
