Hey Screwfoot,

Have you tried any of the other sizes as yet?

SA,

I have flown the 11 as well and it has incredible range. Flying the kite in about 15-18 max and very stable, easy to fly. The new batch is going to be a winner. Will keep you posted on new kites as they are due here in the US by the end of the month, very early Nov at latest.

Screwfoot, you need to be a little more specific than that :roll:

Specifically compared to the current MX and Zombies, how does it/they (7m & 11m) compare in the following areas:

Turning speed
Speed accross the window
Kite drift/stability
Lift in jumps
Hang time in jumps
Upwind ability
Bottom end of wind range

Now THAT will be useful information :lol: :thumb:

Specifically compared to the current MX and Zombies, how does it/they (7m & 11m) compare in the following areas:

Turning speed - Faster than zombies - comparable to blazing MX speed.
Speed accross the window - Does not shoot across the window out of control. Solid speed throughout window and very stable.
Kite drift/stability - Drifts down wind very well in all conditions. Likes to sit back a little more and park.
Lift in jumps - Every kite can jump high...more of user input. Kite hangtime is awesome. More canopy than the zombie which helps with the hangtime.
Hang time in jumps - Awesome
Upwind ability - Very easy to go upwind. Zombie was a very simple and fun kite to fly in all conditions.
Bottom end of wind range - Added low end makes this kite a light wind machine. The kites range in all sizes has improved, thus helping to get away with less kites.

Now THAT will be useful information

Thanks SFSC,

So you're saying that the Spitfire 11m gets going in lighter conditions than the MX 11 m but has similar high wind range to the MX?
Is this common accross all the sizes? I.E. 9m Spitfire has better bottom end than 9m MX/Zombie, etc.

I am saying the Spitfire is built like the Zombie...with the speed of the MX...but has better low end and range as well as all around characteristics of the zombie. The zombies have MUCH more range the MX line of kites. We are just stealing the speed:)
