Hi! I`ve been reading this forum and looking for information about RPM 14m, but cannot find much. I am using 10m RPM, but want something for lighter wind. Can somebody give some feedback about turning speed and wind range?

hi, I use RPM 10 and 14m, the 10 is nice but it has a very weak trailing edge.
the 14m is not a good kite if you will use it with the same board that you use with the 10m.
to enjoy the 14m i bought a big board Radical L, nevertheless i suggest to look to a different kite since it is slow, difficult to go upwind compared to other kites e.g. rally

it all depends on what you want to do. The 14m RPM will provide great unhooking power when people are just starting to ride 12s underpowered. As stated the kite does not go upwind as efficiently as other higher aspect kites but with proper technique and a larger board I can mow the lawn with the best of them in light wind. The kite is slow when compared to other kites of its size but some people, like me, want that "stability" when unhooking.
