All 3 are hi-depower c kites(if you include t 7 with wave bar)

has anyone tried more than one of these kites for comparison? Curious about
-low end
-hi end
-bar press
-stability
-turning
-construction

I can only talk about the T7 RRD. I have tried 9, 12 and 15. I get rid of the 12 because there where a lot of overlap between those kites wind ranges.

Type 7 15 using a Type wave 2 bar:

-low end: same as with the free style bar, 11 knots aprox.

-hi end: never get to that limit, when more than 18 I take the 9, but over 25+ knots for sure... when you extend your arms the kite lose almost all the power.

-bar press: Very, very low... if you use the freestyle bar is very low as well but it get a little harder when you approach the hi end.

-stability: very good

-turning: the fastest turning kite I have ever tried in each size. Though the Type wave is as fast as the type 7 if not faster.

-construction: Excellent, the main pro is the segmented LE. Those little segments make a hard, stable, and very rounded leading edge. And every little piece of the canopy could be easily repaired with little cost.


Now, this is not the perfect kite for everyone, I have to add what is the main flaw of this kite: It jumps a lot, but it has poor hang time. It doesn´t glide like other hi aspect kites out there. But anyway it is not intended for flying and old school tricks but for wakestyle and power moves.

Personal opinion, the F-one tribal is the nuts, better than the North Vegas in every respect. waiting to try it out as http://www.allgoodfun.com have demo tribals in stock.
more depower, very fast in the air, big jumps everything about a C kite and a Bow kite in one.

I Tryed a Tribal 8m las monday, I liked very much. It was gust wind up to 31 kt. It's very fast, stable with full depower and the lifeline is safe.

I tryed a Tribal 15m too, It fell smooth, fast and light pressure on the bar.

But I couldn't tryed the rest of kites.
