Still no educated and detail on the differences. Can I suggest most of you are usual keyboard kooks who wouldn't know a good kite if they were on one anyway.
let alone compare them in an educated non biased manner.
Anyone apart from these bozos, with more than 10-15 years experience who can actually give a discerning run down in the differences in all areas (except unhooking which isn't necessary).
Lol I have to agree, its quite hard to compare gear. Even if you run a kiteshop and have tons of experience... I don't see how you can objectively tell with such small incremental change. Kite being still crisp might just feel better over 1 year old kite
Wind/water condition and how well bar is tuned will have a lot more impact on session that a small incremental change. Also most of us upgrade 1 size at a time so we rarely compare apple to apple
Personally I can tell difference between significant design change or kite type but I don't think I would be able to tell from a small incremental change. Especially boosting wise, some day I boost well some not and I use same kite lol.
I have tried a bunch of kite from friends and often they would have bar set depowered or their lines were out of tune so kite would backstall, even half en hour on kite by the time you realize line aren't set right you barely get a chance to get a good feel for it...
I'm not even sure how I feel about a kite I have owned for a while since wind condition and settings have huge impact on session...
