I had 2 hours on a Halo 10 in lightish winds on a 135x48cm board.

I had no trouble keeping up with heavier guys on smaller boards on 16m Crossbows.

I liked the Halo very much. Much lighter bar pressure than the Crossbows. Very similar to a Switchblade but with a nicer, cleaner bar setup.

The Halo was pretty much at the top of my list but I decided to order a Sonic 11 instead, mainly because of the lack of pulleys and junk on the bar.

Tried it, but on the whole didn't like it. It was fast and had plenty of power but felt it hard a lot of bar pressure, after on a couple of times out the pulleys had all seized up, I didn't like the fact that if you let go of the bar or depower too much it falls out of the sky. It has a horrible long depower line with a crappy bungee that just is pointless and if you drive the kite to the edge of the window when going up wind and then turn the kite hard, it stalls falls back in the window and then powers up.

Not that impressed soory
