location is Europe. But typically Kites are not very expensive to ship, so an online shop should work from wherever.

Regarding comparison Naish Park and Blade Trigger 2012: anybody has been able to fly them back to back?

Anyone ridden Trigger 14 2012 and could compare it with the 2011er model? It´s the only kite in the 2012er range I could not ride yet.
2011 Trigger 14 was a great kite, I had no problem if 2012 is equal but maybe someone feel a little difference ? I´m really nosy, just get him in some weeks and then I have to wait till the ice melts. :wallbash:

I'd say the 14m takes Fat Lady DNA and combines it into what last years kite was like. What you get is a kite that has more grunt and low end while maintaining a lively feel on the bar. Struts are smaller and the leading edge and strut material is lighter, making for a kite that can float through the lulls a bit easier.

If you happen to be in Florida, we are on your this week. Currently at Islamorada and headed to Miami this afternoon.

I have used 2012 trigger 3 times (6h of riding all together) and my front lines already stretched like 11cm. On my 2011 trigger after using it like 25-30 times my front lines are also stretched like 15cm. Is is normal for a new lines to stretch so much after first couple of sessions, or the lines a really that bad
