Hi,

can anyone post also a review for unhooked?
Is it easy to get these slack lines (the "blind spot") to do some passes?

How is it in compare with another C kite or even the 08 Vegas?

Thank you in advance.

I liked my 08, but, as I posted here months ago, the kiteloops were punishing. Not just powerful, but the kite often stalled on the upswing and was tough on the knees. I gave up on hooked in loops altogether.

The 09 is smoooth through the loop. Equally or more powerful, but I have more confidence looping the 09 14M than the 08 10M. Big improvement!

I have only ridden the 14M so far, and it is an amazing kite. I have ridden it twice - once at the very bottom of its range, and once at the top. It is nuking today so the 10M will get the nod.

I rode the 14M for 2 hours yesterday, and I have never gotten such big pop and big boosting out of a single kite. Much more float than 08, and ridiculous wakestyle pop. It will take me a while to dial this kite in, I'm not used to getting such massive pop so I was trying to land while still 8 ft off the water. The potential in this kite is amazing. Easily the best kite I have tried yet.

I have the same problem with the 9m.
It does not fit in the bag properly.

However, the 12m fits well...

i found 2 good ways to fit it in the bag, fold it in half length ways then fold it in half width ways also fold the battens at the end with the kite when you folded it width ways and role it up and make sure you opened the middle valve to let the air out.... the other way is start rolling from one side to the other side and make sure you keep the batten in line with the trailing edge and then fold it in half....hope this helps.
