If you want the best bulletproof construction then stick with the Slingshots.
The 2002 Fuel 160 is a very powerful kite and if you want it to turn quicker get the factory modifications free of charge by sending it back to them.

trust me you won't be disappointed
I am in the market for a 16m (approx) kite.I currently ride Slingshot fuels and I love them but would like to know the real deal on the X2 Naish's.Are they all dacron (or mylar combo's or Polyfuse?).Are they grunty with plenty of foil or high end like the Airush Lifts?.Are they reinforced on the leach (ie. double ply)?,and are they similar weight's to the ARX's (which are quite light compared to the Slingshots)?.
