From what I understand both of these kites things tend to 'Hindenburg' slower than other kites in onshore conditions (I wont say drift because I consider it hype). Can anyone comment on the differences? Thanks in advance. :bye:

I assume you had Trigger in mind? Triggers are very stable, drift good, sit very forward in the ww medium aspect. Never ridden the Wainman

The nice thing about the Wainmans is that you can adjust the Kite position by changing the Bridle settings. They are Great kites!

Never got a chance to ride the Wainman but the Blade kites are pretty awesome.

+ 1 for Blade, especially the 2014 (had not tried the 2014 WH but did the 2013),

Cheers

I'm doing a lot of strapless waveriding in onshore conditions.

Never had my Triggers (2012) hindenburg.
Can't tell about the 2014 models, couldn't try them so far.

+1 for the Trigger. And the 2012/2013/2014 Triggers have an option bridal adjustment/setting that can put the kite into a "wave" setting (drift mode). It works great. See here: http://www.glorykite.com/wp-content/upl ... option.jpg
