I wouldn't say the G2-11 is significantly bigger than the G1-10????

I also placed them out next to each other....they have the same depth (roughly the same...the G2-11 has some BOMBA-esque contouring going on so the depth is variable) and tip to tip the G2-11 is no more than 80 cm longer. When I compared them, I was actually surprised by what I perceived to be how close in size they were and how powerful it [G2-11] is in the low end.

Relative to the G1-13, no size comparison.

Definitely agree on the low end capabilites...blew my mind. The opportunites I've had to fly the kite, my buddy was out on a SS Fuel 15 (often eating shit in the gusts though) and I was having a blast...jumps and all. Brilliant kite.

Actually in the air, the G10 seems to have a LOT less projected area, than the g2-11. Thats why i said it looks tiny.

Why are you all going around talking about how fast a kite turns ,LEI still turn quicker and I want to see a post of one of you ram lovers(with pics) of you doing a kite loop on a peter lynn. Stop talking them up cause peter lynn is a wanker. I would not piss on him if he was on fire. Wake up to yourself and think about what you are all writing. LEI’s turn so much faster and I put it to the test. Can anyone post a photo of someone doing a kite loop on a peter lynn kite. If so I will piss on lynn if he is on fire and wont bag him so much.

Ok, I think I can do a kite loop with one. I'll get my buddy to film it and show you. I may eat shit though due to lack of skill, but that's not the kite's fault.

i bet you havent flown one. try one and then say you think its crap. im pretty sure i saw a few kiteloops on one of the f-arc vids on http://www.foils.nl as wakeboy was saying.

what these things may lack slightly in turning speed they more than make up for in stability

I have seen (live in france) PL kites kiteloopin' and H-passin' and all what you can do with lei's. I think it's a long time they are doin'it. These kites look and move differnt in very low wind but when pressure gets higher they fly as any other, may be even better. New models are performing better and better while keeping all advantages of arcs. I really can't see all this arguing about. If you drive a Porshe, spyder or coupè does not make such a difference. More over blaiming Peter Lynn is stupid beause nobody can be 100% sure he is going the wrong way. It's just one more way to explore and I think he was kiting long before other producers.
So, to all talebans, keep in mid this word : RESPECT.
