Was out today on my Flite 14.5 Aluula and 138x42 Lieuwe Shotgun twintip in about 12 knots (I'm 80kg), well powered up, going upwind no problem. Used the Ozone bar with 25m lines that I use with my other kites. I have another bar with 27m lines but I don't think I'll bother to use it with the Flite. Amazing kite.
Big picture, do you think you'll keep your Zephyr in addition t the 14.5?
Ordered the Flite 14.5 Aluula in February, and because I had a pretty good idea how it was going to work sold the Zephyr in April. Only flown the Flite once and it did what I expected and a bit more. That answers your question I think.

Oh boy My local shop has advised me that delivery of my Alulla kites is once again set back. Like Iriejohn I sold the 2 kites to be replaced and I am left empty handed. If you are tempted to order new OR kites do not xpect them to be delivered in a reasonable time and certainly not at the annonced date.

I ride my 2018 12 M Flite with a 5'6" Vader when it is 14 mph and over on waves. If it is between 11-13 mph I use the 5'11" Lib Tech Puddle Jumper 41 lt. I'm interested in replacing the 12 M Flite with the 12 M Aluula Roam, what do you guys think? I have never used the Roam, I'm hoping that it at least it will have the power as the Flite.

Well there are significant problems not being discussed and it's time they were.

I too am interested to hear the diiference between the Roam and flite but I have not seen a single comment on a 12m Aluula Roam or 12m flite yet, not even demos ( only 10m Roam and 14.5 flite).

There's nothing stopping you discussing the "significant problems".

Ocean Rodeo didn't release demos of any kites besides the 10m Roam and 14.5m Flite Aluulas, that is why there is not feedback on other sizes.
