Excellent forum BTW
I just ordered my Obsession 13.5m 2014 and can't wait to try it out. It should arrive some time in October.
I previously had a Vision 13.5m 2012 and was quite happy with that kite as it was my first kite and I still consider myself a beginner
In the beginning of the year I bought a second hand Obsession 9m MkIII and I really like its pull and the way the kite behaves (planing to use it for snow kiting as well)
As I am a bit "heavy" 90kgs 190cm high...I need a kite with a but more pull and with good low end as where I ride in Bulgaria the winds are around 5 to 10m/s most of the time...with average of around 7m/s. Hoping the Obsession will give me that little bit more power and better upwind compared to the Vision
Other kites I was looking at were RPM 14m 2013 but after seeing a few RPMs 2012 and they way they looked like 5year old kites...decided not to go with them. Was looking at the F-one bandits but didn't like their QR system...well they have changed for the 2014...anyways.
I hope a made a good choice and I will really appreciate if someone who has tried out the new Obsession 2014 write their opinion of the kite or share any info they have.
