Anyone knows where I can find a video of the link. People are talking wonders of this kite and I have not seen it in action.
Thank you!!

Actually nobody is talking wonders yet, but the expectation is high.

All the reviews I have seen for this kite have not been that stellar. Except for the pimps.

well a friend of my cousin has the Link 9m and 12m . Although he really likes the 9m, the 12m finds it a bit slow especially considering he usually rides fuel 2006.

he said the fuel 15m feels faster than the 12m link but link is very stable.

Anyways it would be nice to see a video. if the 9m link is similar to the rebel should be very good.

Yes Im kind of disapointed. I have seen really bad reviews of this kite. Some riders say its the worst kite they have ever flown. Some other say they are doing something wrong regarding the setup. Let's wait a little more and see if this stuff gets sorted out.

i haven't heard this should be the kite for everything , ofcourse like in any other board sport you are never going to find a kite or a board for everything depends on style , my personal preference are the c kites for hi performance and to cruise and freeride the bows

but that is just me :thumb:

You can never really tell with these early reviews. Very few people have flown them, and some of them will be SS pimps.

And the people saying it is the worst kite ever? They probably tried it for a short while, with a wrong setup. This kite can be one like the Octane, with lots of setup-options. Wrong setup, and it sucks...

Maybe.

The local ss rider here says he doesn't like it on the sle setup but the 5th setup was good. There were a couple out yesterday at one of our spots but the wind was funny and I didn't get a ride.
Here's what happens when you are smack bang in the middle of a wind directional change! Link's, waroo's, fuels, matrix down. havoc up by chance only !!!
