In subten conditions, when only the big FS were planing, a myriad of eyes was scanning the situation from the beach and there was a blue streak about them. Eventually, someone jumped aboard and bought a FS, someone not. It is a fact they are by far the best choice in light winds here on the lake. I only rode a SP3 21 one time, so I can't say anything but I'm quite curious about the new Lotus, expecially the 12. The tissue is incredible, you can't understand how light and thin is until you have it in your hands and it's completely waterproof.

If you decide you want a Lotus 12, I'm selling mine for 20% less retail including shipping.


LOL and why would that be..... have a replacement in mind..... :)

Hated it, thought the Chrono was much better...

I have too many kites. I like my inflatos in the higher winds. Prefer the Chrono 18m over any inflato in the low wind range. Seems many love the Lotus just not my thing. I need 18+ knots to start enjoying at my weight. Used only for a couple hours. PM me if interested.

Of course I will Okinawa!
I never rode nor the Lotus nor the Chrono, so can't compare. The problem with the Chrono is that it's impossbile to test one here at the moment. About two months ago there were two guys who told "I'm going to buy a Chrono" but eventually they didn't...

Here is a little review we did on the 12 chrono. The kite is very sweet! I relate it to a formula one car. Its not something that everyone can drive.

That's not a review, that's a promo film...
