Having flown my Elements 3 and 4 back to back with Reo V3's at the time, I really didn't notice that much difference in feel and performance, so not sure where that argument comes from... Owned V1 and V2 as well, and only the V1 was on the heavy side, though it was similar as the Bandit3 I had before. Legacies are a bit heavy, but not heavier than a Switchblade for example.

Kinda miss my V2 btw... would buy it again if I encountered it somewhere. They were way ahead with the bridled freestyle kites at that time. Range and depowered steering could've been better though.

Im wondering why youd compare it to 3 slow turning kites ?
Check out how much he was throwing down on red bull KOA tv.
A park and ride kite does do all that stuff easily..
He rode the Legacy 2 years ago, and it seemed to loop fast as well... Legacy is not a fast steering kite. Guess jump height and ballsize matter most.

N-7 (if I get 1) would be my primary snow kite. Edge, Turbine, & FS Boost 2 are great snow kites. I am not into freestyle at all but hang time & light-ish wind performance would make a difference. Lots of terrain to go up in light wind & lots of looping to get there typically. My main comparison from experience would be to N-4 & 5 being pretty doggy unless fully lit.
