BT has better construction. The 12.2 is not the sweet size in the line (the 9.4 is).
The Wipi 11.8 is "classic" good performance with or without bridles, more upper range, I choose the Airblast.

I've owned the Airblast 11.8 and the 12.2 Blacktip.
I prefer the Black tip, better build quality as well as the wingtip struts that stop the wingtips from cupping. The Blacktip seems to have more raw grunt power, but that maybe because it has more bar pressure without the bridles. I hated the bridles on the Airblast, it made me feel out of touch with the kite, and it takes more bar movement for the same amount of turn. Also the bridles were just another gadget to get tangled.

Just another opinion,

Spiggy
