Hey Marina or others:
I think you or some kiters you know flew both kites, how can U compare them?
Ex: 12M speed, depower, power,jellyfish, jumps, fwd in the side window to go upwind, relaunch?

ETC......

Hi, I can't compare the 12 to the 12..
only the 16.5 to the 15.1 M;Ach 1

The MAch 1 has less low end grund, more Depower effect, better top end but much less low end grund

the 12 MAch 1 is really cool, I like the kite so far

Waterrelaunch with the Gaastra is better


Greetings Buzzy

I like the 9.1 F.One better and the 12 Gaastra better....

F.one has more depower. Gaastra turns faster. Haven't had a chance to test smaller/larger Gaastra than 10 and 12.

Still love the 15 F.one.

Haven't ridden in 14 days as slammed my back on the beach so it may be awhile before I post any experiences again!
