I agree with stakas - the RRD Type 9 is by far the fastest turning kite so far.
The RRD Type 9 is ideal for kiteloops and wave riding. It doesn't get much better than that....

So far the 7m X-Bow-1 is the fastest,
not the 2 or 3 because they're tamed. :nono:

The 7m Xbow wasn't that fast compared to this or last years models, cabrinha may have slowed down their kites but other brands didn't.

Airush Generator and Takoon Furia are by far the fastest I have flown in 4+ years of Kiting. No way is the crossbow as fast.

Definitely the 2008 RRD Type9. I tried several brands of 2008 kites and this is definitely one of the fastest. Very fast and smooth kite but very controllable also. Works really well for kiteloops, waves, and freestyle.

Advance Kondor is by far one on the fastest kites on the market.
I have a 9 and a 13,the 9 is lighning fast but the 13 turns really fast for a kite that size.Great freestyle kite with huge depower.Quality and construction of Advance excells most brands out there.
Also great for the waves! check http://www.advance-kites.com
