Today I had two 1/2 half hour sessions on this kite after being out on my LF Spectroum 10m for 2hrs prior.
I am 92kg and was riding 132 and 142 flx boards.
I'm not going to get over techo on the kite as I am only a steady intermediate flyer with waves and big air my style. Wind was averaging 20kts with gusts up to around 24/25.
The kite is fast. The rear pigtails have 3 options about 15cm apart!! I flew it on the centre connection and it was faster than my Lf 10m (on the inner connection also.
The kite was rock solid in the sky, prob due the 5th element setup.
I found the power very 'on and off', not a characteristic I liked.
Boost was very good, hang was good and I didn't freefall on landings like the rhino 4 tended to do (I found).
The bar was ok but I'm not a fan of the north bars at all - a bit complicated and not simple. The 5th element worked well for walking up wind and depowering.
Didn't try a water relaunch.
Overall, I wouldn't spend the big bucks on my small kite in a quiver. I find the LF spectrum does it all aswell at half the price.
I would love to try the 12,14and 16 though. I'm told by the owner that the 14 is pretty grunty (more so than the x4 14m!) but I will make my own mind up on testing.
If ther are any othe questions please ask and I will answer if I can.
