The Chaos is not a bow if that's what you're getting at... Basically comparing the two I would give the GP a slight edge in slack. The Chaos is a much better all around kite with almost the same unhooked performance. I would say looping capabilities are on par with each other. I would give the Chaos the edge in gusty winds and in low end, if riding in smooth wind with flat water - GP hands down. The bar pressure on the GP is higher for sure, however the actual bar is better on the GP.

The chaos is not a C kite, it's a classic SLE with bridles and pulleys. Not saying it's good or bad, that's just what it is, and it makes it completely different from a C. GP is more or less a straight up 5 line c kite

Chaos is a bridled C SHAPE sle. GP is a c kite. no funky bridles to deal with.

I did dig the GP when I demo'd it. I like 5 line systems personally, and Best has come a long way in the past 3-4 years in terms of Kite Quality.

SLE: supported leading edge, it has bridles to support the leading edge, not a true C...

I have an sle-c, 90% feels like a C, however loop a fuel, and u will tell the difference, im sure the chaos is the same, feels like a C but the differences are minor
