The 2012 Prime was a great kite and the 2013 Prime got a terrible review.
Blade should return to the Prime of 2012.

design wise what are the differences from the Mist to the Prime that would justify it being re-named?
(guessing that the Mist is a direct replacement of the Prime, ie, same target)

The MIST looks like the mid-aspect trigger from 2012. Loved those kites....

Doesn't anyone have any more info on the Mist? It seems to go in a very nice direction from Prime but I'd like to know more! Much more! Has anyone here flown it yet? Or even seen it irl?
I'm thinking of going from Trigger to Mist.

Mist in comparison to the prime 2013; basically we made the prime more stable( less nervous) (regarding small sizes) in comparison to the mist small sizes. the kite is a bit more user friendly and forgiving, for those riders that want an aggressive progressive c feel but don't want to be punished by the raw nervousness of any c-kite..more power throughout the unhook but keeping the same explosiveness such as the prime had when popping unhooked. When hooked in the jumps go way higher and feel floatier than with the prime, a bit more like the trigger but instead of the supreme control of the trigger you get a more raw boost. summarizing it; feels like a more consistent pulling unhooked kite, same explosive pop, more unhooked jumpability, and super stable and structured in high ends conditions +35 knots.

Soon a video will come out but for now that explanations and this vid should do the trick (;

Like the 2012 & 2011 Primes. 8)
