Has anyone yet had the pleasure to put the vari vulcan to a test?

If so, what do you think of the kite?

The kite rocks. 7m is sick, but best is the 10
Almost a perfect 1 kite quiver kite.
Very quick for a Delta shape. Perfect for waveriding, kiteloops etc.
Very soft feel, but still enough bar pressure to know whats going on up there.
I still need more time on it to give a full review. We had no wind here for way too long.

The re-launch is ridiculous , just let go of the bar, and the kite does the rest. Works 99.9% of the time. Ca 8 seconds in a perfect world.

I keep you posted

Hi
Just collected my 9m Vari Vulcan from the post-office tonight, havnt had a chance to fly it, but the guy i brought it from in america (Kinsley ThomasWong - XtremeBigAir.com) said:
"The kite is very well built, nice handling just like the Waiman kite and beautiful graphic.
The control bar is nice, the only thing that I did not like is the flying line just a bit flimsy and easy to tangle.
Other than that, it is superb."
the lines look to me to be very similiar to the ones on my flexi-foil kite, which are prone to twisting and then tangling, but are really good lines if you look after them
I'm stoked for some wind and a play now!

I have kited with the vulcan 10.5 for the last 2 weeks and the kite is awesome, super fast,super responsive , superb hang time, I have ridden for the last 10 years, and now this kite is the best 10 mt kite I have ever used by far. as one guy mentioned this kite can very likely be your only one in your quiver,

Thanks and good winds
