I have recently acquired 7 and 10.5m GT's, super impressed with wind range, quality of kites, depower, ease of setup, bar quality and overall ride. They turn super quick and have great low end, 7m does 16 knots upward on surfboard. It's a pity that the Core brand is not better known as they are onto a winner. I have no connection to Core just love their kites. :P

that hook, and the coresponding loop attached to the bar form a "micro-loop"

if you hook in, the kite is locked off on full power even if you let go of the bar, lets you do a deadman

interesting, now it makes sence.
i could not figure it out based on the bandit bar as they do not have the loop on the bar. wonder why they have it integrated into the CL?

i will be testing the core gt 12m today and am pretty stoked.

hi

the metal hook should no be facing towards you but towards the water


the GT are quite powerfull..so you might consider the 10,5 if you were happy with an average 12kite (or even a 14 C kite)

I import Core to venezuela and the GT is an autosell, i just have to give people the kite to fly..

best regards
Sebastian
I fly the 7 mostly and i replaced my carved Fireball C kites for everything but steady 7m widn with kickers (istill use my fireball and an old pulleybar then)



(I can also sell them to the US ;)
