Been flying kites for long enough to see that RPMs dont jump well and don't loop well.

Not saying that they can't jump and loop, they just aren't the kites that SS make them out to be.
Never could understand this.Maybe the older models.I've flown the 2011s and now 2014s.Maybe its me but my jumps aren't any different than any others I kite with.I'm one of the local "loopers" and I'm always getting compliments on my loops.Maybe I should go with another kite and maybe kick it up a notch,I'm game!

I have been riding RPM's for three years. It loops very nice. Not too much powered but fast and can give you support on landing if you have enough height, Weak side of RPM is hang time and height. Just quick lift and goes down. Also it likes to be powered to give you good height.
