I forgot a little detail concerning self launch and land. When I go to Caribbean resorts I like to use beach umbrella for fixed object launch and land. The RPM because of its short wings is very nervous in the fluky winds at the beach level. Vapor with the fifth is perfect for that a) it is stable because fronts and fifth hold the preangle b) it has regular wings to sit on b) you can walk the fifth making sure that the kite holds the position and if something goes wrong you can pull the fifth saving the day. Just a little detail among the other things that I like about Vapor.

[quote="b0jangl3"]OK .. so Ozone in no way is a beginners brand ...

Ayways ... back to the topic at hand .. cant wait to see and test the 2011 Ozone line. If anyone else manages to scrounge up some real photo's, would love to see them.

*******

Ozone is a great beginners kite, that is a wally of a comment. Catch a flight to New Zealand and go to a place called Raglan or Aotea (seems to be in all the pics ozone put out), forget 2011 you will probably see 2012 ozones being tested and we would all like to see the pics.

I live in Raglan and kite where the Ozone team test. The conditions are far from beginner friendly with a tide that rips at 9knots. They got 2012 kites testing at the moment and are always out there putting the latest tweak through its paces.
Everyone has their opinion and most are byist towards their own kite manufacturers but no need to make silly comments as its just to spark up an arguement.

I dont even ride Ozone but i can certainly testify as to why they are one of the best kite manufacturers on sale.

Ozone definitely isn't a beginner's make, but I understand why people think this

still amazed it's taken the industry this long to produce a decent bridled C (w/o pulleys). i went on the Ozone website and could not find good pics of the bar and bridle. could someone please post a few detail pics. thanks.
