It seems to me that latest kites of many brands are following the wipika airblast-takoon design trend:
Very high AR, more struts, fast profiles, fly on the fronts.
On bars too:
Releasable loops, front line leashes, etc.
Of course, all 2003 models have improvements in materials and construction, but we have to recognise that Wipika was many times ahead of the pack.
After major changes is natural to be working more to the inside of the company.
They came out late with 02 line of products, so it is not strange that this happend again witn the 03 line.
