I did try 9m MIST two days ago. The wind was 25 maybe 27 knots so i coudn't do any unhooded, but did try some sent jumps. The jumping is very easy and similar to trigger. Just send the kite to 12 (or 1 or 11) pull the bar and off you go. It's easier to jump than 2011 prime and it has a lot of float for c kite. 2011 Prime float like a brick compare to mist. The bar pressure is very light (to light for my teaste).


you couldn't do unhooked with 25kn!?
I was flying away with 20-22kn!!!

I use it in similar conditions like my 10 rpm.

i don't know maybe it was 30 knost, can't realy tell. There were guys on 10 and 7 doing huge loops. But it was too much to unhook for me, maybe if i pull the depower all the way but i find kites to preform worst when completely depower so normaly i change the kite or do other things.
It also depends on the wind. The wind was cold and dry so that alone could make the difference.

Hi Guys,

basically the mist has the same explosive pop that the prime offered when unhooking :D , Unhooked the mist pulls very continuous and has les of a "slacked lines" feeling :!: :) . the kite is made for progressive freestyle but lately I've really been enjoying it for hitting obstacles as the pull is so reliably consistent :naughty: . when hooked-in the kite is great for big air jumps it really boosts you up in the air., indeed the trigger is way quicker has more hang-time and feels floatier but deliveres less raw power for freestyle.

the Fat Lady is a pure "go Kiting" machine. she is a real quicky for a 17meter kite and has a super consistend unhooked feel. I've used her in freestyle competitions on so many occasions because she really delivers in no wind.. id say give her a try because reading about her doesn't settle justice for the fat lady. everybody should get wet riding her(; :rollgrin:

soon wel be releasing some videos with the mist!

but for now, feast on this edit featuring the powerful prime

Guys at Blade are right about the bridle. It's really tiny! (Finally found some pictures as no one wanted to post anything here...)
