Any reviews off the new Slingshot Machine big air kite?

What Slingshot says:
We built the Machine V1 to enable riders of all skill levels to achieve their record heights. The Machine V1 flies upwind, has quick turning capabilities, effortless relaunch and the big-air ability to give any rider a rush. Built with premium materials, the Machine V1 is one of the most technically advanced kites.

Maybe the wraps come off this kite at AWSI for the North American market? I also found out that there is a new Slingwing V3, which just got released in Europe before the US.

Reincarnation of Machine 2005? Or lack of new names at Slingshot?
It took Slingshot only 16 years to reinvent the Machine. It struck them that Machine doesn’t have to be 17 and 21.5m + size. Now it will be 12m - size. Other words are just like they said 16 years ago

To my eye, it looks like a reincarnation of the old Rally that people loved (circa 2017) before it was modified into the Rally GT. You can find more info on this kite on some foreign sites, but I won't post it here.
