I hear its the new Best kite is coming out in January 2014 and called the "EXTRACT". It is going to be one hell of an interesting kite as Ruben has 'fathered' his own Cuben baby lol - designed with an agenda to meet 3 specicifc requirements... 1. Jump huge 2. MegaLoop 3. Turn fast This will make life exciting as its a 4 line no bridal direct connection and has taken advantage of the Cuben fibre thin leading edge he says 'slices through the window very fast allowing for better dynamics than the standard bigger leading edges... Its allso beefed up to take a pounding too... Ive been hoping someone would build a dedicated megaloop kite for a long time now. I also hope it 'stays' aimed at the 'advanced jumper market' and doesnt go making it cotton wool soft for the wannabees who wont commit to going big anyway... I wonder how he will go at the next King of Air on it... ?

No way that's a boost. That's a tow up.

Tone- Blade Prime 9m in over 30knts.
I am not sure how high but mick uses 25m lines the shingle bank is at least 20 ft high and I am level with the roofs of the houses on top.
Typically the wind picked up 10 mins later and I did the biggest jump of my life, but the go pro had switched its self off. :wink:
