Had another session on the 7 slash. This time with a TT. Super fun, jumps like crazy just like Clint said. It is has much less aggressive initial pull than the pivot, which makes it easier to control. I would think this kite is a great kite also for jumping for intermediate kiters.

Great hangtime, great pull, even and predictable. Nice looping. I'm so excited about this kite.

:thumb: it´s really a versatile kite, far beyond the pure wave aspect. I also ride the 7 with my TT and love it for that. I am teaching my 14 year old son on it as well, works really good.

How is the bar pressure of the 2018 Slash? (Compared with a Pivot 2016 if possible)

Is a kite that needs constant steering (which can stress the elbows)?

Is there another wave kite with lighter bar pressure?

Thanks in Advance for any comment.
