Cabrinha Crossbow is considered by many to be the biggest boosting and by far longest hangtime of today's kites. C- kites are nowhere near this.

I am pretty sure that there a few that will disagree with your statement. Let's see a video of the claims because there sure are videos of C-kites doing what you say the CC can do better. I personally think is just somebody's opinion on the kite he likes.

Would agree that the Rhino boosts big, but 2009 was the last production year for the Rhino.

I would guess it depends on your technique. Small fast grunt load and pop then loop or just rig a huge massive depower kite. The huge depower kite will definatly hang longer without looping but not sure on height. Wait I know. What ever you put in Ruben Lenton's hands.

EH Ripper 09 ( at least the 9 & 6 meters ) I have tested beats by far two of what I always thought to be the best jumping kites around .....Best Warro pro & Ozone Edge .

I have to chuckle at this statement.

Most kites jump well, jumping is more about pop, timing and being optimally powered.

And being responsive when sheeted out so you can send it quick and fast up to the zenith.
