Alright, so I got a chance to ride Gypsy 2.0. It was on the low end of things since the wind was blowing 16-22mph. I was on a surfboard and head high surf....
When I first pumped it up, the struts and leading edge appear to be a little bit larger than before--2cm? I could be totally wrong here...other than that not too much has changed, very minor tweaks.
In the air the first thing you will notice is how rock solid and direct this kite flies. The 2.0s are stable, stable, stable. I was doing backstrokes to my board without any worries. Or when I was riding down the line, the kite sits, follows and waits. It's like a super compact machine that's willing and able to move any where you want, when you want.
The power delivery is WH classic, natural, progressive, and smooth.
The new bar felt really good. My setting on the kite is on fast, so the bar pressure was lite. I had feared that the new bar would be totally different from last year's model. Thankfully the apple didn't fall too far from the tree. The Carrot Bar is a great improvement. Good work WH!
Now, if you haven't noticed on my description, I am a dealer/kiteschool for WH. So, take my opinions with a grain of salt. However, I will state this...I've been approached by other kite companies, with extremely enticing offers. I could have purchased kites for my school for practically at cost! (sometimes I wonder why I didn't take the deal). But, when I jump back on the Rabbits, I quickly realize why I chose Wainman Hawaii.
More pictures and hopefully videos to follow...
