I'm interested in a light wind kite and have been hearing great things about the Ocean Rodeo Flite.
Anyone ridden it? Any reviews?
Any thoughts how it compares to a Zephyr?

We talked about it some here, and we are in the middle of a light wind kite test. Having flown the Zephyr it does not have the low end of any of the kites we are testing here. Haven't seen or flown the 2014, just the 2013. Higher end of the light wind scale its a good kite, but doesn't work for us in light wind here.

We did our own light wind testing just over a year ago with Infinity 1, Zephyr, Core 19 and Turbine. The Zephyr clearly had better low end than the Infinity. Of course Dimitri told us that the the Infinity was still better and the people testing the kites didn't know how to use the kite to its best ability.

Our findings were:
1 - Turbine
2 - Core
3 - Zephyr
4 - Infinity

I would agree, we are just now testing the infinity, so can't comment on the low end of that yet.
