On the "Reality Check", I disagree about the lack of low-end.....Trix has plenty of that.

I agree Dave. I've never felt the Trix lacked in low end grunt. :roll:

I would also argue the upwind ability. It may not be a high aspect upwind machine, but it's certainly no slouch either. :cool2:

I think the bottom end is very good. The relaunch is excellent, even in light winds. Smoothest kite I have ever flown...very easy to tell where it is, but the bar pressure is med/low.

One thing that doesn't get mentioned enough is the durability. That leading edge is super tough...I've had it slide across asphalt without leaving a mark. Tumbled it in waves...I thought it was going to be shredded...didn't cause any damage. I also like the bridle length, very little chance of wrapping a wing tip unlike some of my other kites.

I have nothing but good things to say about this kite. I have flown most of the major brands.

Great job GK....don't mess with it please.
