Me not. And not interested in going there ;-)

Sure, hangtime must be awesome. But, Airstyle is not big air. There is too high for many tricks, specially when rotations come into play.

I prefer around 20 knots, all of my tricks possible, with way less risk.

The slower you can make your kite, the better! use a shorter bar and longer lines to slow it down.
I ride the inner connection of the bar and 32 m lines on an 18 sqm kite.

Also, you need at least a good working stopper ball to hold down the bar for more hangtime and hands free...best is a microloop...so look at buying a used bar from North, 2009-2012 which has two hols in the center. Then buy the microloop upgrade kit HERE
Is this answer for me?

Thank you for the informations. I really appriciate it and read it very carefully. The north bar you suggest will work with the 12m rpm kite? A Length of 28meter lines would work with this kite? (68kg rider 125 TAD board)
Soon slingshot will sell the new turbine on small numbers like 9 and 11. Your comment please on these kites compared to the rpm , for airstyle of course.

no idea about the Turbines.

You need to set up the bar like the SS bar. you need to measure depower line length, leader lines etc to make sure it has the same trim.

The current turbine is a great airstyle kite, lots of float good handling, but you never know what happens when they bring it out in 9 and 11 you'll just have to demo it. Good chance when they downsize this kite they make it too twitchy, so who knows.
