they arrived in our local shop, we are still waiting on the black tips but the co2's are ment to be the best kite flown, and the fastest turning, looks like theyre built stong too, the bar is different, with a slug which locks in to a hole iin the bar.

The new Co2 looks good and fly's good.
The dobble agent board on the other hand is not a nice board. I've tried it and did not like it. So did other four riders tested it and all went back to their old board. It's just not doing it. And it's also very very heavy. Maybe that's why most people doesn't like it.

Hopefully, I will be in Hurghada by the end of this month. Looks like I will have the opportunity to test Gaastra's GXR 2003 against Cabrinha's BT 2003...

There is a review on http://www.kitesurf.co.za.

From all the sources I have heard from the new black tip is really impressive, and better than the Rhino 2.

Unfortunately they have tested the new bar, as only some demo kites arrived in South Africa but so far the kite is definitely up with the best.

I know Andoni rated some of the new kites as follows:

1. 2003 Black Tip/X2
2. Rhino 2
3. 2003 CO2/Aero 2

I didn't try the Martin Vari board yet. But it looks good. The double agent board don't buy it. There are tons of better boards out there. It's too heavy.

I have the Vari 148. At first I was worried about the extra width but after my first jump I just love the board. You get insane grip with the extra heelside fins and the landings are really smooth with the exta tail width. The board is very light and thin.
