A very stable hard pulling kite. This kite is so user friendly it's unreal. Full marks to Naish for making such an awesome kite. The low end is handy, with a big board you can head cross or even upwind in 7 knots. The top end is about 15 knots with small board, however this is with 27m lines. With 20m lines I can use it in more than 15 knots. You need to be powered with this kite to boost big, but the hangtime is pretty darn fine. So really this kite can do pretty much anything you want it to. It doesn't drop in light stuff like high AR kites do and if it does end up in the water it relaunches way easier than high AR kites. This kite is a very reliable performer that will give high performance in the right conditions.

The turning speed is a little slow but really it'sa trade off between good low end but slow turning or reduced low end and fast turning and good top end for big jumps in 15+ knots.... all in the line length.
