Bandit 11 2018 review yet anywhere?

Anyone reviewed the new bandit 2018 yet? Looks like more pulleys on the kite bridle in the video. Any one confirm?

more "pull-ups"? you mean pulleys?

I have heard there is indeed an extra pulley per bridle, so 6 totals. I wish they improved pulleys quality and removed some instead of adding an extra 1. Maybe they felt it needed an extra pulley to flag the kite on one line even better (it opens up the bridle so there is tension only on 1 point on kite)?

I want to know how it effects the flying characteristics.
Hopefully it wont change it too much. More to go wrong though. :-(

Why do they always release a product in September each year bit no one actually can get them or no independent reviews until like January every year with only 9 months to sell before doing it again?

Demo kites should be near us in a couple of weeks, pre orders beginning of October. It's true that last year it took them a long time to deliver kites after they were announced hope this year it's different but I am not holding my breath...

I am on Cyprus and there is no fenaroseto here , so you must be talking of some other place.

Nissi beach Ayia Napa ? Nice white beaches , turquoise waters but no kitesurfing there. You would be lucky to find a place to lay a towel on the beach it is so crowded, let alone rig a kite, no wind anyway.
You need to travel 30mn west to Softades (kite centres) or even better to Paramali beach 130km away.
BTW October is the 2nd worst month for wind, November being the worst of the year..
