Hi, my name’s Craig Smith, I am a Team Rider here in the UK. I had my first shot on the 17.5m 2012 Flite just over a month ago. It was the first time I had flown a kite bigger than a 13 in a long long time, (probably since my old 17m Strike!). But what a kite, I was kind of reluctant to go out, as the wind was sub 12mph…but Dom Moore pushed me to get out and give it a shot…so I did and how surprised I was, it didn’t move like a 17.5 the kite flew quickly through the sky and the turn rate was un-beleivable, probably due to the new FST Wingtip design. I was flying around for about an hour…the wind picking up to just above 20mph before i came in and changed to the 10m Razor, even with the 7.5m size difference…it was the perfect swap. A great kite, and did everything I needed it to do! That is all I can say on the kite, get yourself a demo from your local dealer! and you will see for yourself what a great light wind weapon it really is!
