I have only read their add if one can believe advertizing you should be able to launch yourself into a low balistic orbit with this most advanced kite ever seen on any planet, They are hi aspect type frontliners from the add so will not be a favorite for the grut crowd but may hold interest for the more refined and and so sensitive afficinados who do our grunting in the morning after the requist dose of coffee. peace love and alltitude!! fo

Freaky fast turning kites best suited to light weights.

well, i'd say it's a matter of taste to decide between the lift 12.2 and the airblast 11.8.

the airblast has a tiny little bit more low end (but that's a matter of the pilot)
the top end's nearly the same.

IMO the lift looks and feels made of a better quality.

from the looks, i'd say it's the most durable tube i've seen (in 2002)


the 9.4 is a mean machine when powered up.
the lift and hangtime feels like the x2 12 looks (fast and high lift, you're virtually ripped off the water, and the hangtime's incredible for a 11.x meter flat kite)

bonus:
the kite comes totally ready to fly.
due to the strange line-setup (for the safety) , the bar is ready rigged and line length is trimmed perfectly.
