Hi,

I had a bunch of sessions on the 7m and a super session on the 6m (40 knots, 2m sets) - it is what i would call a hot-start :jump:

The good part is that the stability is as good as it gets. It passed the Guincho gusts from hell test with distinction. (there where other kites twisting around).

The 6m is equivalent to the 7m of 2007 with a notch less depower, MUCH more stability and more power. The 2008 bar has a center line that is longer and allows more depower throw/depower adjustment than 2009 and is good for Rebel 2009. (i.e. i didn't mix the years :-) )

This said i pulled a couple of downloops in ballistic winds and very strong sea in the first ride, so it looks promissing :-)

Just a side note, i have to admit that having a one pump system is really nice... :oops:
Although in ballistic winds i must be sure it is as reliable as a no pump. Until now, all super!

See you!
