I do like this format a lot. Love the clip of Giel watching the drone on his way down!

I sure hope it's not the Ocean Rodeo Giel Vlugt Pro model....😂

Will be interesting to see who made that stinker.

I'm pretty sure it's Collin's design made as a joke to confuse the pros a bit and see their opinion.
It's interesting to know where and how did he actually made it.

I have to say the black kites amongst all the other kites look pretty cool

Interesting how Lenten talks about the F-One Trigger vs how Vlugt and Jacobs describes it. Good example how subjective these things can be - even if they seem to agree more on the three other kites.

Could be that he thought it was the Ozone edge and wanted to talk up his brand? From his view flying the kite in a solid color, the profile looks identical. Just a thought.

I couldn’t say, but it seems quite clear to me that he recognises the Edge when they cut him off?

Credit to Ozone by the way. I don’t think the Edge will ever be a kite loved by pros (or those who want smooth looping), but it is a kite were the characteristics are easy recognisable. Vlugt and Jacobs talk about it in very similar way. And it is a very good kite for us without world class skills that just want to jump.

The issue is that it really isn't a blind test at all. The materials are a huge give away along with the inflation systems and embossed valve fittings. Even the bridal lines are easy to differentiate for these riders. I love the concept, but it's just that at this point. In truth it's pretty difficult to pull off correctly, but these guys did put together a very entertaining piece. Good on them.
