It's an easy decision, the Soul. Better fabric, better bridal, can sit on the water without taking on water MUCH longer, faster turning, etc etc

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.
I've looked up Pansh kites, holy tapdancing Jesus, those prices. On the other hand, those prices come... with a price.

Yeeeaah, naaaah...

All foils need some measuring at some point. Measuring is most helpful for inexperienced people, but for many things you can do without it if you know what you are doing and to look for.

Yes Pansh are very cheap and they are exceptional value. If you are foil curious and just want the try one then the smaller say Genesis are so cheap I would say there is no risk there. If you would have always liked to have a large lightwind foil but the insane prices of other brands has put you off, well Pansh is very hard to pass by.

If that point is right out of the bag, like on the photo above, then I ain't touching Pansh kites with a 10ft pole. I mean, some kites do require tuning out of the bag, but not like this. This looks more like lines displacement.

I'm not "foil curious". I do already own a Flysurfer foil kite that I use during winters. And I wish to pay extra for a world known paragliders manufacturer that is Ozone, or proven quality of foil kites of Flysurfer.

Weird thing, our local dealers for some reason have raised the price for a Hyperlink, so now it costs the same as Soul. If other kite shop just didn't update their price... guess that Soul is where I'll go.

Skywalk paragliders is closely related to Flysurfer kiteboarding in case you did not know. Perhaps the connection is not so "world known".
