Local Hood River reps turning their quivers, so I suspect new RPM's very soon

Just got an email,sounds like the big change is some new material for the canopy-
"Returning for its 12th iteration is the iconic RPM V12 with the Flyline Bridle System. We have continued the RPMs evolution with our new canopy material; 4x4 Canopy Tech, making it stiffer, stronger, and more durable. Last year, we introduced FlyLine in conjunction with the new Modified Open C shape to usher in a new definition of any-condition and all-performance for the RPM, the most decorated and award-winning kite of all time;'

For what it's worth, the new 4x4 material they put into the SST absolutely changes the feel of that kite for the better, and I have been on that model since 2016. It's a significantly more rigid structure now, which I really like. It tightened the turning radius up to the point that the first ride on the 2020 SST I wondered if I had accidentally rigged a smaller size. No bs

sounds more like a bridle tweak to me...
