fone deliberately cornered itself in the narrow niche by manufacturing only one kite that suppose to do all and fit all. for me - waste of money. less and less seen on beaches near me

That would be the F-One Trust. I've seen (and touched) them, but never flown one. I believe it's really just a rebranded and upgraded Volt. I've got two of the Volt 2's, and one Bandit 5.

So yes, there is another F-One kite, and it is more than mythical...

Yes. Volt is intended for kiteschools and beginners. it is a lot slower :baby:

Just saw this...
I've never compared the two kites in the same sizes. I've got a 12m Bandit 5, and 9m and 7m Volt 2's.

From my experience, I'd say that their characteristics are generally pretty similar. The 9m Volt seems a bit faster than the 12m Bandit, and the 7m Volt is much faster than either. It always takes me a bit to adjust to the speed of the 7m if I haven't flown it for a bit. I'm not sure I'd want it much faster.

I am still a bit of a beginner though. The 7m Volt is probably my favorite of the three kites...
