Love the BWS Noise pro. Drifts better than any kite I now. Nice, simple bar. Great low end.
But… the high end sucks, especially on the 6m. It starts early but has such a narrow wind range.
I believe it is the same with other wave specific kites I have tried.

I have a North Rhino07 16m & 12m and I don't like that they have 8 struts.
I had to replace all the strut valves recently as the original north ones all broke at the "T".
Noticing that the newer designs have 6 or less I simply removed 2 struts the #3 from center.
I doubt it will have much impact.
I do like the 2 pump setup.
Having nothing to compare with though I can't say whats better.

Super quick kite
Lacks bottom end
Shoots far out of the window on transitions
The 7m of the same year is not great tho, zero bottom end and zippy/fluttery.
