Is this a link to your chix with dix porn pics again? Hard to see since the url is obfuscated..


it's a link to kite scoop, which Toby has a filter set up for.

Hey Phil, how does the kite feel? First experience? How would you judge the sum of no pullies and longer bridles?

Looking forward to your feedback!

Wow the kite appears to have higher AR than the 2012 and 2013 models. Am I correct here? From your photo the new Park looks more like a 3 strut version of the Draft than like the older models.

How does the kite ride unhooked? Can you get good load and pop followed by slack in the lines? How does it boost compared to the 2013?

Well, not tested myself yet.
My mates who have tested it said that stability has improved (not sure if I understand this one as stability was not an issue for me with the previous version :o ) and found that the kite has a more "direct feeling" than the 2013 version (probably due to the pulleyless bridles).
It seems that it will still be one of the best all-round kite in the market :cool2:

Optical effect. I put the Park 9m 2014 on top of my 2013... no difference, same dimensions, same AR :thumb:

Mmm all that sounds good to me! No pulleys and higher AR....nice. Okay parks on the demo list.

Trigger higher AR, switch blade higher AR, park higher AR....catalyst lower AR....doh!!
