We will let the video speak...bla bla bla bla emoticon smiley bla bla bla emoticon smiley..........
Unfortunately, as seems to often happen, the test was inconclusive with different line lengths, completely different boards, and different rider weights.
I would have hoped at least the two of you could get on the same board, so we could see something useful.
I saw what I already knew...big kites are boring and kiting in super light wind is a pain in the ass.
Meanwhile you been "threatening" for a month 321 is gonna put out a "Movie" that is gonna show....something.
How much doctoring does this video need?
Just post the video and shut up already.

I am sure Epic makes good kites but so do nearly every other brand out there. I can tell you that they are not streets ahead of the competition - as is claimed - just by using common sense. It is obvious that a 19m kite is going to have more power than a 15/16m kite like the Infinity, unless it is designed by an idiot and I doubt Core employs a fool to design their kites.

The video being referred to now, had SUPA on video calling out 4 knots steady, which is now a steadily growing number (currently at 11knots?) when on the water.
What it does prove, is that comparisons that are not confirmed by any technology, done by parties with an agenda on both sides, and all things not being equal at all (lineset lengths, boards types and sizes, and rider body weight)...makes for a pretty useless comparison.
Other than the very general information that both kites flew, and that lightwind kiting is boring.
