Anyone have any reviews for this kite? I'm 175 lbs, thinking about this for my LW kite. Looking for decent boost, hangtime, unhooked, and loops

Hangtime Check
Unhook Check
Boost ...well nice and floaty but not over the moon
Loops...weeel 17m kite so not too fast but loops nicely on transitions etc

Really really nice kite for the days 14m only gets you going and struckling to stay upwind

Have the 15... but not the 17.. and a great kite for it´s size! :D
Nothing to think about, but consider the 15 instead, more fun (tried the 17 earlier)...

I rode a 2013 17m TS2 at a demo the other day in about 15 knots, and agree the boost isn't that great. No comparison to my 18m dyno.

I also think that you would be better with the 15m especially if you want to unhook.

I took a 15 out for a while and really liked it for unhooked, and it had a lot of power and upwindability in 10/11 knots. I wrote a short review in the other thread about the TS2

I have the 9+12 m. Tried the 17m and ordered it for light wind freestyle + lw freerace on raceboard.
When I tried the 17m I did some kiteloop backroll transistions and some raleys. It looped well for a 17m and no backstall despite very LW. UH felt fine.
I haven't tried the 15m so can't compare. If I wasn't gonna use it for LW raceboard freeride I would consder the 15m
