It seems to have 41cells which is high for that shape. Kite has conventional 4 line rows, D-ribs and a lot of span wise strapping. Wingtips are thinner, more swept back than FS has usuallly had.

Bridle spacing is something like 1-3-1-3..., which makes primary lines short and overall look clean, it is a good compromise for sure. Air intakes are located evenly which I've always preferred. Wingtips have 12 cells after last air intake, which may take some time to inflate.

Kite looks very good :thumb: Interesting to see how FS foil kite lineup will be, if it is over for Speeds. Cell count suggest it is, this new kite is a very serious thing.

I think the current sizes are great except for the 9m and then 6m. I think that is too large of a gap, I would prefer a 7m and 5m or a 7.5m and 6m, something like that. I realize that they do not sell a ton of the small kites, but going from a 6m to a 9m is a big step. Now with foil boards, you don't really need a crazy amount of wind for a 5m, 7m or 9m.

I pionted that out on the Sonic2 models and the answer I got (if I remember correctly) was that the 6m is 6.4m and the 9m is 8.5m so the zise difference is just 2.1m not 3m as you would think. I can't say about the new models but I'm sure it will be something similar.

I like their new color design. Really wanted to buy their limited edition Sonic2 but I instead I'll wait till the Sonic3. I'm planning on buying one of these to replace my Psycho4 6m. I know there's a video floating around but I havn't gotten my hands on it yet.
