HiFi = 100% C kite, very stable, great for freestyle, flat water
Havoc = Hybrid SLE with C-like behavior, more suitable for waves, as good as Hifi for freestyle.
Both great for unhooking

Thanks aeberl... I currently have Havocs and should probably stay with them due to gusty local winds.

I tought my doughter first on a '07 Waroo 7m and later switched to a '08 Havoc 10m. Now she would not let go the Havoc even though she might be a bit overpowered.
