I´m sure you know already how it is :wink:
I will try this weekend. Just received it today and can tell you next week. Though I am an early intermediate only and do not dare to make a review about foils due to my poor skills with it.

well, you should wait until you see them IRL. Looking awesome. Way better than 2017. But as always, you cannot argue taste...
But there still is your green you seem to like :thumb:
I went for the black yellow version :cool2:
What ? They're out ? :evil:

I don't know why everyone complains about the octopus ! i have a 2009 colt and its still never failed. I could pump it up and fly it today if I wanted to go retro !

Even if you have to repair it, it is an old myth that it is a nightmare. For a couple of years now the valve connections
are well accessible through large zippers. In the end it probably takes half an hour longer than with standard one pump. That´s 30 minutes and that should be a decision criteria for not using a very good kite? :roll:

BTW: 2018 Blue/Grey Pivot is on the way :D

Yup. Well I actually don't think it takes even that much longer even for a LE. If you use lines to situate the nozzles it is a pretty trivial job.
Also they are less prone to needing repairs the outside single pump systems because there is no part of the system that gets damaged by UV.
