Not sure why folks say it is slow? Te XR7 11m Is quite close to the speed of a Reedin Super model 9m. Crisp, great bar feeling, feels light at the end of the lines. Faster than Rebel and more stable than Evo (I have not tried the SLS), the kite stays where you left it so very good for rotations, you are never stuck with a kite in the wrong side of the window, great improvement from the XR6, lighter and crisper, not black and white difference.
Sorry, an 11m XR is not remotely similar to any 9m, let alone a SuperModel 9m.

Yes, the XR7 is more responsive than an XR6. But that's like saying an 18 wheeler from 2021 is more responsive than one from 1992. Don't get me wrong - the XR is the easiest/highest jumping kite on the market, but lets not exaggerate any more than necessary :).
oh jeez! let him soak honeymoon/recently spent loads of money on kite gear period :D

By the way not suggesting they had to change the XR a with a lot. Incremental changes makes sense I guess - and at least they are not pumping out a new version every year.
You have to admit something, they do say on their website that it is marginally lighter… it is 8% lighter Duotone makes a Big Bang around the SLS for 15%. But try one, it is much crisper than the XR6, Evo or the Rebel but not as responsive as the Dice, Nexus or GTS of course. It depends what you compare.

I found the Super model 9m very slow for its size. But you must be right, I think the Supermodel is heavier on the bar than the XR 7 and I must have got confused. One thing is sure, the Dice 13m is quicker than the XR7 11m. 11m vs 9m makes no sense.

Some people complain slow turning but wtf who cares if you are lit.
Waiting for the 7s! Just because I can :)
Have you played with the settings at all to try and help it speed up? I am short days into mine and it definitely is sloooow. If so, do you have a favorite combo? Thanks.
Avoid the freestyle setting on the CIT, makes it more stable, deeper in the window, less depower and I think slower from my Nexus experience. If it is setup at the fastest setting, it Might just not be your kite. If you want speed, I would stay away from the 5 struts altogether and anything high aspect. It depends what you compare it too? Reedin? Orbit? Wave kites? GTS? Dice?

Have you ever tried Orbit?
