hi there!
my impressions of the 12m booster:
i (75kg) need my big directional(6'3" custom) upper 4bft to feel good.
then, it is a good kite - great flying and fast turning.
and a hell of an upwind-performance!
it also harly ever drops over the leading edge and falls down - in normal use. when you
do a bad and big jump, you'll get it to drop ...

but it has too many disadvantages:
-the packed kite is about 2 meters long.
-water-relaunch is a matter of luck
-the accesories are crap


......
that's what i tjonk about the booster.
if u got any questions, feel free to ask!

greetings,
murdoc

i don't know the rrd.

but i'd try and wait for the 2002's of them.
there are other kites to come out -

i think the gaastra could be very fast and direct, too.
and it will be smaller when packed and relaunchable :wink:
