They sure look very nice. Great colors. A lot of kites look better in 2008.

Still 5 lines?

Just had sweet session on the 12m in average 13 knots with big surf on 5'8 surfboard.
Deffinatly way more low end grunt than the 07, still as fast though :D

It can now be flown on 4 or 5 line too :wink:

Windsucks,
what are the sizes. Are they making a 10m this year. I know they have a 7, 9, 12, 14 and 16.

Best quiver for a 165lb rider?? Would it be 7, 10, 14 or 7, 9, 12?

Where in the sizing does the bar length need to be increased IE does the 9 and 12 share the same bar or the 12 and 14?

Hi Nukin,
Sizes for 2008 are 7,9,10,12,14m vertigo

I would recommend for your weight 7,9,12m.
Bar sizes come as 45cm for the 7,9,10m and 50cm for the 12,14m ,

This is what Blade say:

We have decided to make a change in the sizing allow for a better quiver selection for all users. The 2008 sizes are 7, 9, 10, 12, and 14.

The 2008 sizes give the following 2-kite quiver options: 7 and 10 for little weight and/or strong conditions. 9 and 12 for average weight and/or good wind conditions. 10 and 14 for bigger people and/or low wind conditions

Full details here......................

We've used the kites with the wrong size bars and they still work fine, I'm 12stone and the 12m is the biggest I've used all year ('07)

The 10m in 07 I always thought was the sweet one :D
