Another video about a kiter that shows NOTHING of what the kite is doing.

Not true! There are hundreds and even thousands of milliseconds of Mist towards the end of the clip! :lol:
Even if it almost looks as the same loop over and over and over...

Unfortunately, they cut it up with some sort of stop motion video trick that screws up any flying footage they did have!
The Mist looks like a great kite, time for Blade to make a nice video so everyone can see it.

Finally a review! And very positive one as I was hoping! Missing details on different aspects of performance though... Looks pretty damn agile at the end of the video!

I have happened to ride the new mist (lol go figure some of might say). The iksurfmag review is pretty spot on to be honest with you. It packs a lot of power, especially in the loops, nearly ripped my bloody rib cage out!! Accelerates all the way through the loop and gives you a huge yank, but once you have got your head around the power delivery you can always be sure the kite will get above your head again. Real constant pull and predictable. It also boosts real big for freeride hooked in boosting, although being a C kite it won't hang you up there unless you are ready to pull the loop trigger (some of you might get the play on words there).

It's a real fun kite loaded with some serious power and as the review said is not for the beginner. Infact if I can be honest the loops were too powerful for me, although that is because my body won't take too many extreme loop crashes anymore.

To those that want to lock and load it's awesome. It's kind of a freeride/freestyle kite..although I'm certain it's not a kite that will blow you away in the waves...some more on the freestyle side of the spectrum.

Worth a look hey for some powered flat water sessions. Don't eat too much before your session as I did...lol
