I use to ride the Bandits and now I fly Waimans. They had their product going for 3 years now and nothing major has changed. The package is complete and well thought out. And the relaunch in light winds is spot on! I live in Santa Barbara CA and our winds typically hit from 10-18mph. I haven't had to swim in with the Wainmans yet.patrick1712 wrote:by the way guys what your general opinion on alternatives to the FONE bandit ? I'm looking for really good quality stuff with a proper bar , with well engineered safaty releases, kites that relaunch and flag properly and with similiar characteristics - power / boost etc to the Bandit ?
