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.

My first conclusion is a great board ;-)- a Door. I agree. Looking forward for a test ride if the kite one day.

When I've flown the kite a few more times I will give more detailed feedback.

Very interested in the flite in the new material. Am i being optimistic to hope that a 12m flite could replace my 11m sblade and my 14.5 flite from 3 years ago.
Im 75 kg and mostly twintip on a 136 bronq.Would be happy to get a lightwind twin tip.
What is the realistic windrange of a 12m flite?
Any thoughts appreciated.

These kites now in the market, did the fix the bladder leaks or just fit regular bladders? and the material tearing around/through the stitching Was that resolved?

I think you are being optimistic, a 12m kite cannot replace a 14.5 m kite. I have ordered both a 12 roam and 14.5 flite so can give you feedback once arrived & tested.
The high end of the more ridgid alulla frame may cover your 11m but the low end will never cover that of the 14.5. A second bigger board is a no brainer as far as I am concerned it will be used it light conditions with both your existing kites and will be a session saver. This said a 12 m kite with a big board will get you close to the range of 14.5 m kite and smaller board and to what extent depends on your ability to manage & generate kite power.

If you go with a bigger board choose a model designed for lw and choose the lightest construction you can afford. Idealy try beforehand, I had 3-4 large boards before I found the right one for the range and use I wanted. There is a thread on lw boards, check that out for more info.

Big picture, do you think you'll keep your Zephyr in addition t the 14.5?
