They are a really good light wind kite, especially if you just want to cruise, aroung on a biggish board, and have a kite that you can also use on land and snow.
Equivalent to a 16M inflato, approx, although lots of inflatos would make better water only use kites, IMO.
As far as foils go, the Blade 3's are one of the very best ever made, and they certainly continue the Blade lineage of excellent power, lift, stability and build quality.
