New graphics are top secret, I saw a few ideas knocking about last october but they were just ideas its a very closley guarded secret :nono: so no one has seen them.

As for sizing Wainman have posted the new sizes up on the website within the Partner zone and are stated as 5.0, 6.25, 7.5, 9, 10.5, 12, 14.5,

a combo in there for everyone, I am thinking 5, 7.5, 10.5 although i love the Smoke !!!!! too many to go at now, I remember early on infact years ago lou was just going to make small, medium and large kites with no numbers atttached, easy choice then i guess.

Looks like a martian with muscles and not like a rabbit, for this reason i would think that it could be the new size 10.5 the punch.
Has it some trailing edge flutter... hopefully only a pre production kite...

When will there be details on the new kites? Is it just additional sizes or are there other changes?
