forgot to add the CQuad 8.5, havn't used it in a while :)

So 3 kites Mastair 16, Wipi AB 8.4, Cquad 8.5,

plus any kite the local shop lets me try out. Got to test new Naish Aero 12, SS Fuel 19 recently, and occasionally I help newbies setup their kites, then I say, want to see how it works?, then I take it out for a quick spin :D

I saved a guy learning with a Takoon 17 the other day when he had rigged one side backwards,
I caught it before he could launch, then demo'd the kite for him.

I have 2 kites F-One Mach I 12.1m and F-One Mach II 16m.
I'm just waiting for the reviews coming in for big kites.
I have the following 4 choices to select from:
Flysurfer's Titan don't know yet, but they guarantee the lightest wind range.
Gaastra Phoenix 25m. Second lightest wind range
Mamooth 19m but when it's avaible?
F-One Mach II 19m. Waiting for release and maybe suprise.
