did anybody really see this mythical "other" kite in the real world?
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...
