I read, that Windtools was considering to put a batten in the tip, but in the end they decided not to do it. They said it would not be necessary considering the performance, stability of the kite.

hey there,
i've tested the booster without the battens.

i don't think there's a use for them - the kite jellyfishes a lot, which is good for turning speed and performance.

for this size, the booster is very fast...

but be sure to inflate the fronttube as hard as you can!
