I have, but only a 2012 10m, so can't comment on smaller sizes. The kite jumps great and loops fast, but it doesn't pull you in a loop like a C kite does. Better try it yourself at your level of riding, as it will much depend on what you want from a loop.

Thanks guys :)

And I'm glad you are enjoying my videos Alfarosi :) It keeps me motivated to know someone finds them useful :)

Looks like the TS won that kiteloops contest, right? I can see it's not pulling all the way through the loop like a ckite, but it still gives a good kick forward in the first half of the loop and it catches you pretty well. Still not like a true ckite would, but it still looks fun.

Yes TS won. But this championship was sponsorized by Best Kiteboarding&Gisela Pulido and it was a condition that in the final to win you had to ride with Best TS. But this kite really loops very well you can see it

I was injured and I recorded a video to my friend at the same competition. You can compare aswell.

There were between 30 and 40 knots. So I think all people rode with 7 meters except Black Fuel, is 5 meters.

It was in Empuriabrava in Roses Bay (Catalonia - Spain) near Barcelona.

Cant comment on the looping of the TS as I dont kiteloop yet, but there was a competition held in the south of england towards the en of he summer.

Organised by Lewis Crathern (sponsored by Slingy at the time), was the Big Air Open Kitesurfing Classic

There wasnt a huge amount of wind during the day and not all heats where completed, but can say that those that got furthest where declared joint winners in the mens, 2 out of 4 were TS riders and in the womens 1st & 3rd place used TS.

Can have a word with a few of the riders to see how the feel about them if you want
