Liquid Force P1 - taking on the Edge and XR5?

Thoughts? Too late to the game? Looks more like an old rebel to my eyes, but might be a fun delta / high jumping kite.

They have me intrigued. I generally like 5 strut kites, and would prefer to stay away from pulley and battens. This checks all those boxes. Also looking forward to reviews.

Definitely interesting and no, never too late to make a splash. Lots of LF kites on these shores. Will keep an eye out myself..

I'm thinking there must be people who own one of these kite around here now? Feedback?

I'm interested in the 12M to replace my 12M Envy from 2014.

RRD Addiction -- same designer, different company. While at it (that is making new kite design) I wish LF nuked their max-flow nonsense.

BTW, live2kite was recently firesaleing Addictions MK2 and MK3 for about 300 bucks (new).

Interesting, they did a very similar trick with the WOW. Has Julien left the company or just run out of ideas?

I really like the Max flow, works better than anything else I own.

live2kite doesn't appear to sell RRD anymore...that might explain why they were selling them off so cheap?

which kite do you think the WOW ressembles?

I have seen a few promo photos of other kites with similar profiles but nothing that makes it look like the same designer

Wow v1-2 has uncanny resemblance to Trigger, although they are not identical.- Wows le is much skinnier, struts are set farther apart, te cut different. Now the v3 wow almost looks like 2014 trigger..oh boy...Probably every kite made today resembles one from yesteryear now.
