A as in one 2008 kite does not suck compared to most kites and is infact better than most including current models. Even earlier kites could drift quite well. The Peak 4 is meant to be the current best drifter, have you tried it?
WOW, you are too much! You should join the pro-tour and you can give clinicks for them....
You should go learn to read. As to drift I have never seen it done in a video as I do. It would be quite easy if they(the pros) tried and the kites were capable.
When I see a pro or anyone slack line a kite for 30 seconds let a lone 10 seconds my expressions will be satisfied. I don't blame it on the pros, after all they are given such shit free kites.
On the subject of this kite it looks quite good. Reacts fast, especially to drifting back, must be the low weight. Would be good though to see a real slack line test. Standing in 10-15knots kite direct over head, pull in 10m of the front lines and let go. Maybe then push it till it fails, maybe on waves so we can know it's limit? What about opposite flying? have you seen that from your pros? No? Amazing people, shit gear. Well opposite flying is when you fly the kite in a direction opposite to the wind. As in you fly the kite upwind of you. Gear/Ingrediants you will need - skill, a light kite, light wind, hydrofoil and a wave that will push you way past 0 for the apparent wind into NEGATIVE WIND land. LoL spin on that one.
