Same here, not a mistake of the SOUL!
See my last post a minute ago...
of course it's not specific to Soul however, some people try to sell here some BS for example that this kite doesn't take water or if does always drain it, another one is that it always relaunches which isn't true either.
It was windy day and I was on TT however, after jump I think kite overflown me lines go slack and it went tacko-mode and fell to water.

Still like my Soul a lot and not changing it, had some ideas about trying Sonic 3 in same size but if my problems will more likely appear than now with Soul it isn't worth for extra hassle.
some fan boys are quiet funny on this forum... love my souls but they arent perfect, had some issues with bridals coming undone in the stitching as well that FS resolved too

How about the possibility to fly a Soul on a Ozone 4 line bar? Is it real?

Should fly perfectly with any four line Ozone bar.

I fly it with a 2017 ss sentinal bar and 18m lines, the bar intended for the ss foil which bombed Misérables … could use more throw but works well in no to 30kn wind

:roll: ALL foil kites at some point will take on water and there will always be situations where any kite just won’t relaunch. To believe otherwise is naïve. But the Soul does currently have the best relaunch and takes on the least amount of water compared to all the other models/brands.

Been riding my Sonic3 more lately in good stable winds and I’ve been impressed. The handling/stability are greatly improved over last generation but I’d still recommend the Soul in unstable air, for those inexperienced, and if you like to loop.

good to hear ya getting on well with the sonic3's, i did consider the 9 but i went for a second hand spd5 9,which is more my thing for landboarding really, and that kite is astonishing , a bit more in ya face than a soul but i love em both - the sonic3 doesn't look like a great landboard kite ,but i would like to see someone landboarding with them , i did wonder if lewis wilby had any sonic3's , he has all the souls
