hi
I am thinking of getting the rev 9m
So for the people who are experience riders.
Did you think this kite is a good kite for kitelooping
does the kite come up on the upstoke just as easy as it goes down on the kiteloop
also how does it compare to the fuel :D

It will knock your socks off!

It really loops well; just like a Fuel.

Rev Loop = Smooth,fast,powered,floatie loop.
Fuel Loop = Smooth,medium,powered,loftie loop.


7M and 9M are the best of the bunch for very nice kite loops.

yeah its so good it kind of feels like cheating :D

that is not to say it doesn't do a nice powered loop, it just does it so fast with such light bar pressure that its almost automatic. The kite enters the loop real fast and recovers real fast on the upstroke.

Only problem is it makes you start pushing harder for bigger more powered loops, the ones where you can get really F'd up if it all goes bad. Fun as hell, but big owwie when you push it a little too far.
