How is the turning speed of the 12m ROAM ?.. I am thinking of getting a 12m for light wind wave riding and skimming.....I have a 12m flite and Prodigy and love them both, but they still feel like 12s....is the Roam noticeably faster turning??
Roam 12 turns like a 12. I borrowed a friend's Prodigy 12 briefly on a light wind day...seemed to turn a lot faster to me, wanted to loop, but also noticeably worse drift. I back stalled it riding down the line.....never done that on Roam or bws, just not used to different flying style. Prodigy also more bar pressure.

Matt - have you locked the bridles out on your 12 Flite yet? If not you should…it is more direct. You should like it.

I can't find any info on that, do you have a link??

i disagree with this, the Roam loops/turns faster than the Prodigy. I would say it's not as fast as the Razor, not as slow as the Prodigy. I've owned both the Prodigy and the Roam, same size, same generation, and the Roam is faster turning than the Prodigy. The Prodigy is better at boosting, and maybe has a bit more low end.
