Any feedback on the code and how it compares to the 3 strut allrounders from other brands?

Ok then, more like 2015 Ozone Catalyst then?

Look all I am saying is they are recycling someone else's work. Expensive copies of old gear.
LOL, there is absolutely zero chance that the designer would copy another kite. I know Adi, he has no need to copy anyone, trust me.
Just because you can see some vague similarity to an Ozone suggests more that you need glasses and a reality check than Slingshot committing plagiarism.

I've flown a 12m Code. I'm totally biased but I totally loved it. It generates loads of apparent wind and has a great bottom end, charges upwind, has great boost, smooth and silent loops (unlike the OtherBrand kite I flew in the same session - its trailing edge fluttered so much that the struts were fluttering too!) and is easy to fly. Not sure about unhooking it yet, I've only flown it twice.

I ride S27 10&12 pivots and Phoenix 12m and 11m Code V1.
Code V1 is super responsive it's a pretty fast kite and bar pressure is spot on.
Good for beginners or experienced riders Jeremy Burlando rides it. Lift is vertical and doesn't fire you up as hard as the pivot although I do love the pivot and its flying characteristics.. Wind range is massive.on the code .
All round a really good kite always know where it is in the air. Recommend to anyone looking for a well built tough as nails all round kite.

I am very interested with the Code. However, I am reluctant to buy a V1 kite. In, many cases, there are manyadjustment between a V1 and V2 (Orbit or XS, RS...). Not that the V1 is bad, but there are always many improvement on the V2. How do you judge the Giel Vlugt comments on the Code in the Blank Kite Test ?
