Yes ,without any doubt , it is super stable , it drifts ok and slacks lines perfectly , it's also fast turning in small sizes,low/med bar pressure and good feedback . I use it for the same purpose you named in big sizes ...
Only cons ,should be for downloop /kiteloops drifts as the kite it pulls hard during this and reaches the zenith fast , if you're riding strapless it can be a problem and you should be careful on the power . If you're riding straped with fast and agressive style and you're a big guy it is a super fun kite, be prepared to aerials on top turns in onshore to side on winds :cool2: :thumb:
Big sizes a bit lazy for upwind ..

Are you talking about 2018 specifically or did you also use the 2016 or 2017 models?

Also, do you consider a 10m a big size?
