Are you joking?
The Bandit is probably the best selling kite.
North maybe sells the most kites but theyhve like 4 different models.
Fone has (till recently) only a single kite that does it all and rumors say that Fone are between #3 and #5 in kite sails


I also read those stats somewhere...
If i recall then North is #1 by far then Cab and Fone.

Which surprises me the lack of these kites in Western Australia with no direct retailers stocking them. Impossible to get a demo hey.

Just because it's a best selling kite does not mean it is good.
The feedback through the bar is awful feels like jelly. maybe the whole idea of one kite does it all is not so true with f-one.

I do want to try the new kit out as F-one has made some awesome kites but the B6 doesn't cut it.

Love my B6. IMHO the feedback through the bar is perfect.

I never really liked Bandit until B5; the B6 is an awesome kite. I never have any problem knowing where the kite is. Bar pressure is light but the bar feedback is great. Great for surfing and also great for boosting really high.

If it jellys it is because you didn't pump it hard enough. Since it has only 3 struts if you dont put enough pressure the kite will fly like shit.

2 major things on my wishlist....

1: use a push type QR and drop the velcro

2: start using big flow valve like cab, core etc
