I have tried the 9, 12 and 16,6 Rap2's and for budgetary reasons settled for only the 9m. I have only flown the 16,5 for a couple of hours and it was the first bow kite I have tried. Found it to be a little slow in the turns and lacked the direct feel of the 9. Do not take this opinion too seriously...

Any news about this comparison? I purchased a 9m Rap2 and became a big fan of it, however I will need a larger SLE flat kite in the near future and would like to hear some independent feedback on how the Waroo (or Sonic, since they seem to be identical) compares to the WW Rap2.

Mice info., but to return to the topic, any news on how it compares to the WW Rap2?
I have not flown the Sonic yet, but am impressed about the 9m Rap2 I have recently purchased.

I don't know about the Sonic (have not seen a single one in Peru yet) but have had a 6hr session with the Rap2 9m last saturday and as a result purchased one. :lol: These kites are very confortable to ride in difficult and unforgiving conditions. Still preferr the large C kites for light and steady ...

I am in need of a new kite in the 10 to 13m range and have been trying to find out all about every option there is on the market. Personally I have tried the Rapture II and am convinced that my future kite will be of the "bow type". Have also narrowed it down to either the WW Rap.II or a GK Sonic (w...

Any experience on how the RapII compares to the Sonic or the new Waroo (Best?)
Are there any unbiased reviews of the Waroo on the web?

You are right, LE down, facing me, one of the front flying lines wraped arrond the back of the kite and over the trailing edge (never happend with my C-kites before). Was flying with my Naish bar and lines. Again, maybe a matter of skill and setup, bar was definitely too short (50cm) for the rap II ...

Cons: Droped it a couple of times and bridles tangled arrond trailing edge, could not be recove...
