Rode 9m UFO a week ago - nice kite, no flutter, very good relaunch, construction looks solid. Will be buying one soon.

One big difference is the UFO is available everywhere, the Cloud is USA only.

All above.
In the FB Cloudriders group there is a lot of discussion to find.
I like the Cloud more then the UFO because the Cloud drifts better. UFO pulls more like a strutted kite.
But you can't go wrong with the UFO if it is for the hydrofoil. No flutter at all with the UFO and easier to buy.

No flutter on my D Clouds plus I think there is more power than it seems as I think its smoother power.
