I meant differences in the kite not the bar.
I want a new all around beast. One of those or supermodel? Not sure which would’ve better. Core never make them sound that great or tell you where they have been upgraded or how flight characteristics made better etc. Have to wait for some proper reviews I guess.

They used a lighter Dacron for the struts, 20g less per m2.

The german site gleiten.tv released a test and they are usually quite good. In case you don't understand german: wing tips are a bit wider, lighter struts (X lite?), Better feel on the bar but I think they said a bit more bar pressure in a positive way, reacts fast on steering input, better for foiling and wave riding while parking the kite, a bit worse for waveriding were you move the kite all the time, jumps about the same, wind range still huge, kite doesn't need to be flown actively all the time despite beeing open C meaning a little sine is enough to speed things up (that I really like since I hate doing it!), overall a very nice rendition of the kite and they rank it highly amongst other do it all kites. Have a look at the video they have nice recordings in general: https://gleiten.tv/index.php/video/acti ... g5Hod2flmI

Anyone else notice Core's new compact surfboard on their teaser vid? I like the newer shape.
Go to 0:26 in the vid
