Review for RRD Hyper Type 2007 12.0

Times tested: 11+
Range: 12kn to 25kn

Good: Great turingspeed. Very low barpressure. Superstable "on the fly". Amazing lowend. Great hangtime.

Bad: Feels a bit unstabel at 12aclock when standing on the beach in gusty winds - keep a bit of backline tension and thers no problem.

Review: This is really a great kite. It's soo smoooth and really puts you in charge. The kite just sits where you place it and waits for your input. Fast and direct turingspeed. The lowend is so good that it replaced my 15m2 C-kite. The HT 9+12 combo is all that I need.

I've been riding the 07 Hypertypes along with a few local riders in CT all spring and they are just awesome. Easy setup, great range and depower, and they go huge and hang forever. Anyway just wanted to post a couple pics from yesterday SW 15-20, Hypertype 12, rider Joe Ruscito.
