Can't find any real world comments about these kites besides the marketing sh*t.
If you have one and is not thinking about selling it any time soon, please let me know your impressions, specially in the 8-9m sizes.

I have 2015 9M Religion and love it. It is superb for wave conditions as drifts as should, turns super easy with low bar pressure. It also jumps very well just not a huge booster. Kiteloops are sweet and really stable smooth pull throughout.
Relaunch no problem. I have no complaints about it. Large single inflation is simple and easy. Well made.
I came from rabbits and it handles as well for waves. Self launching and landing are very stable.
Hope this helps. I have no affiliation with RRD except I have 2 obsessions (which is why I went with a Religion)!

Thanks. Good to know it still turns easy. I saw this pic on another forum comparing the shape of the 9m 2015 with the first version, and the narrow wingtip worried me a bit.

2 pulleys ( that is all I know)
looking for a set of religion 2015 too...getting great prices now, but my worries are more the pulleys bridle tangle, and most of all the barpressure, my old fingers are suffering from the barpressure I have on my kites now and want to go to wavekites with low /light barpressure.
I have flown the new Naish pivots, very low barpressure, nice flying kite, but I can get RRD religion much cheaper and that is one of the reasons naish is not in the picture ( besides the bar and octopus system)

Second what Salvino says, apart from the kiteloops which I don't do. I have a 10.5 and a 7, which I have used in ridiculous wind, although I am thinking of getting a 5. Mine are 2014 and I am just about the replace the 7 with a used 2015. Can't say that I have great experience of other kites but they seem to suit me.
