Not that it really matters, but I am also in the process of renewing my quiver and plan 17m/12m Flites and 9.5m and 7m Prodigys.
I have the 12m coming and would have the rest but both my kids just had wisdom teeth removed, so I gave all my money to an oral surgeon who is probably kiting on new kites now...
I too was a little hesitant, but the more I hear the less concerned I am the the Prodigy will be boring. That does not sound like the case at all.
Looking forward to them!

Glad to see that you're copying my quiver! ;)

I just hope that I get to ride that 7m sometime soon without having to put my hurricane shutters up on my house! :o :o :o :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I received my 9.5 and 7m Prodigy yesterday and got a decent sesh today on the 9.5 for about a half hour before the wind came down and I needed to switch to the 12m Flite. Initial impression was all positive, faster than expected, lots of grunt on take off, super stable in the gust, med bar pressure. I didn't get a good feel for boosting because I was mostly underpowered but it felt like it was going to be a no brainer.
