Also should look at ConceptAir Pulsion

But 97 kg TT and 12 kts I would be looking for a 15 m

To be honest, I'm actually looking forward to that option after some recent news. I've been waiting for a certain model of a foil kite in 15 meters size, to find out yesterday that development of it was cancelled and it won't hit the series. So I'll have to get 15m Soul instead of it and probably won't buy the 12m version.

Unfortunately I won't be able to buy it till the late winter or earl spring, cuz my monthly income is pretty low.

Also I've changed my mind about 15m kite, since I have 17 iflatable already and 14 foil kite that is getting reanimated. So I'm going back into consideration of 12m foil kite and I'm going back to the headache that I've started with. Soul or Hyperlink. :lol:

They are not painful at all, 3 good designs on water to choose from A15,Aurora 2 and Genesis.

I saw them in action. Constantly collapsing wing tips, uncontrollable pull, unstable. If I'd wish to buy a kite on a budget, I'd rather get local Paraavis kites that cost around 1000$ with bar included. But I want something of better quality. I'd really love to get me a Hyperlink, but lack of speed system trimming really bothers me. Yet people say that they had no need for it after 60 hours. I gotta consult with our local line master if he has solution for this problem.

Mine was flown too little to even think about trimming but I really doubt I would even need to do it. Even if I need to do that in a few years I would just trim line lengths myself. I believe that Ozone pro-tune speed system also works for this kite.

Adjustment systems are over rated. Adding your own is simple enough. Most adjustment should be on Z unlike as used on flysurfer with B and C.

I have seen and used plenty of Flysurfer and Ozone kites that behave as you witnessed Pansh "kites". All foils go out of tune and people often adjust them poorly.
