Dear friends,
yesterday finally I had a chance to try my new Airush Flow 8 meter 2005.
First let me tell you that my choice for my smaller kites is always been of buying a low aspect kite of good quality and not too expensive.
When is really windy all kites perform pretty well.

2 years ago was the Naish Boxer 9 meter, excellent kite.
Last year Airush Flow 8 meter and was a OK kite, a bit to nervous and a bit heavy on the bar. Good wind range and good in waves.

This year model is an improvement as the kite is more sweet, a bit less low aspect and not as nervous as before.
It still turn really fast but is more predictable and easier to handle.
Also and very important to me is a bit lighter on the bar.
I always use the same bar since 3 years so this is a fact.
Construction looks good but is missing the reinforcement strip between the leading edge and the canopy (North Style) that in my opinion should be there.

So in my opinion is an excellent high wind kite with a moderate price tag.
Bye Jankie
