Hi! I´ve bin riding the TS V2 for some weeks now.
My main kite normally is the GP, so mostly freestyle and freeride on me.
The new TS is a lot better than last year. Seems more well balanced and well tuned. It´s some of the same feel that the V1 had, just better in every way. Fist when unpacking it you notice the double ripstop canopy and the improved and reinforced onepump system.
I can still do all my GP-tricks on the TS - no problem on anything. Last year it felt like it was a little less slack ,still nothing like the GP. But feels more tuned unhooked. Still have to pull in a little on depower when the back lines are on the second (middle) knot. I like it the most on B-setting/ slow setting. Just superstable unhooked on that setting. No problem keeping it still when going for a pass with the back hand still on the bar. I even got comments on the beach of how stable the kite seemed compared to other kites on the beach. And the guys that tried it also commented on the super stability and the great feel. It´s also a really fast kite, spesially on the fast setting.
The boost is amasing. Got some really big jumps on it when quite powered, but you never feel too powered since it´s such a rock solid kite! Have bin underpowered on it, and way overpowered. And it works like a dream no matter the conditions. And no matter what kind of riding I have bin doing, the kite behaved and performed well. So I´m really impressed by it this year. A lot more than last year! A good allrounder!
Still a light bar pressure but you still feel were the kite is I would say. comming from the GP it´s superlight hehe.
So all in all will still keep my GPs but will ride the TS a lot more this year!
The 15 is also the perfect light wind machine for me - makes me abel to unhook when others stuggle with their 12s. And what a boosting and air machine when the wind picks up.
But the 12 and smaller have a more playfull feel.
So works great for unhooking, but then again if thats your main thing, nothing beats the GP
More aggessive yes, but as pobably much depower as the 09 waroo I would say. And that explosive pop and insane slack you only get on a propper C
