you still on ocean rodeo razor? the razor has a lot of power very early
Yes I am, and I totally agree with you! Razor has the feeling that will rip you off, especially in unhooked tricks.
The bottom line is that I want to improve my wakestyle riding and that will happen if I go to a more suitable kite for unhooked tricks.
Any other info would be appreciated
Maybe about the quality of the construction of the GP
From the photos around the internet it looks pretty solid.
Construction is really solid, after one year I can't notice any wear or change in flying characteristic, the lines on the bar are great.
2015 had issues with glue on valve like many brands, my buddy just got 2016 and no issues on it.
one thing to consider is the chicken loop size on the GP bar which is huge, I like it but some of my buddies don't like it so much. Though since you don't really need to push bar out all the way I have never felt like it was screwing up my stance. I ended up shortening bar throw after a few month to retune bar (shrinking line) because after attempting kiteloop bar spin I had trouble grabbing the bar back haha.
Wakestlye I am a noob (only simple rotation) so can't comment much but definitely has nice slack even on freestyle line setting on kite, haven't tried wakestyle setting.
I unhook a little bit on GP 9m, I also have Star Sirius 12m which has incredible slack, very easy progression on it.
By the way kiteloop are really nice on it too at my level.
