`What do you think is this the ultimate freeride kite?

I had a couple of sessions on the Prodigy 9,5
my thoughts on this kite.
the zipper of the bag is improved
super stable, the only way to get it out of the air is to shoot it,
Floaty jumps, its so easy to complete your transitions
bar pressure,  about the same as the razor, it only needs more steering input.
depower, i used it from 16 knots on a surfboard till 25 on a twintip 75 kg didn’t use any depower.
beginner feedback, my kite is still dry.
expert feedback, i can land my tricks on this thing!! its actually a nice kite to unhook, it could be a bit faster.
wave feedback, park and ride super stable

if you ask me you can’t go wrong with this kite.

Build construction? Will this kite last?

Its an Ocean Rodeo kite, these kites are made to last,
for a 3 strut kite, it looks pretty solid, they stitched a X from strut 1 to 3.
i think this prevents stretch, and it looks pretty good.

Nice suggestion…Maybe i’ll try this one, perhaps then I could fly a kite a little bit moving.

Any comparisons to the Cypher? I’m looking for a 12m to learn new stuff on. I think I’m sticking to 10/8m Razors, and then pick a 12m (Prodigy or Cypher) for learning new stuff and unhooking. Any suggestions?
