I have completely different fillings about WH Maniac. I bought 2 sizes (9,5 and 11,5m) in Feb and tested them well in Egypt week ago. Both kites are stable and aggressive (not for casual Harley riders) but you need to pump kite harder and play with the settings, move the front and back lines, find your perfect combination. You can use 5th line as well if you need to.
The only bad thing I have noticed was lack of manual. But as far as I know it will be available in .pdf version soon. I'm really stoked about product especially that WH brand is still niche.

Bought Maniac lately, not a bad word on "him" at all. In terms of power it really rocks!

i was riding fuels for years and they were always rock solid!

lately i was riding different kites as i also had some knee injuries and had to take a step back

i still tried them almost every year (since i work in a kite shop) and they are still on the peak of 4-line C-kites! i would give it a go!

cant say much about the extract or maniac as i havent tried them...
