Yesterday, I tried the 16.5 for the first time. According to Flysurfer, they changed the 16.5 a bit for the production modell to get more power from it and cut a bit of the stability. It is now comparable to the MastAir 16. They changed the color design, too. It is more white now and the kite looks much lighter due to that.
I had a blast with the Litewave 181 and Bindings yesterday in conditions where North Rhinos (22.X and 16.0) fell out of the sky, because of the gusts. And they state they cut a bit of the Warriors stability for the 16.5 HAHA
I wanted to testfly the X2-12, but decided not to do it, because of the conditions
That was the bad part of yesterday.
Anyway, I LOVE my new Warrior 16.5!
Review and pictures asap.
