you say your pulse2 14metre refused to jump,so how do you find the soul ? does that say no -has she been in the mood , or does it get a headache too
I have found my pulse2 6 metre very obliging , but you need to whine and dine her with a big wind, she is a whore , she likes a big un
Soul jumps with ease. If I can go upwind and get quite some tension on the lines then I could jump. Not always, I'm only doing my first jumps, but still Soul picks up with ease and so does with landing.

My pulse 14m is a bit to slow for that. Or maybe I don't use it in proper winds. I even took it to the guy who set the bridles back to the factory lengths. But whenever I put it to the zenith and pull on the bar it just loses all power.

same here, just had session today I'm 92kg wind speed measured at beach 11-12kts, on soul 15m as soon as I can go upwind and tension my front lines I can do easily 3-5m jumps which feels crazy to even jump on TT on such a low wind with my weight. Love the kite and looking forward to ride it in sub 20kts.

And for the other thing, I haven’t taken anything personal. I’m not the one cussing or attacking on the forum. My problem is when people bash a product due to their bias or incompetence which you have a history of doing. Like others have said, calm down.
You spread slander and trying to belittle me wherever I go. "Oh you know, that guy is incompetent, because yada yada, don't take his opinion". You act like a woman. No wonder you shave and gloss everything, except your beard and eyebrows, even have a couple of wacky tats. I will not calm down, neither take shit from you. Stop acting like you're innocent, because you're still acting like a douche canoe.

Also because I mostly got used to Soul still doesn't got rid of its flaws. It's still slow in the turns, still breaks bridle lines coating within first hours, still fronststalls in gusty or turbulent winds, still gets dragged off from parking spot, still refuses to sit tightly when backstalled, and so on. It has nothing to do with my competence, but rather with the kite itself and how it was made.
much of what you say is just plain incorrect or silly. "Dragged off from parking spot"?? really? so would a table cloth in wind. Maybe they should include grappling hooks? Maybe plastic ribs for grip? I have 5 Souls and have yet to replace a bridle line or a mixer line.
You can comment all you want on turning speed and feel etc...totally subjective but these other items are ridiculous.

I made my mind up to get a 6 metre and 10 metre soul after seeing the 10 and 15 souls being flown , after never seeing them before and after just buying a spd5 15metre, always had speeds from speeed1, but watching the soul 15metre , it was blowing a howly, and the tide just going out , and the kite was parked perfectly as the guy was talking lei flyers mostly , and not really watching it , as as he describes it he pulls the bar abit here and there , and he stays put ,no sliding, but no rush to get on the water , and then he does and he's away in complete control and goes 30ft in a jump , great landing and rides off downwind ish along way, and calmly comes back upwind , that made my mind up for the 6 and 10 , I should have took my windmeter, to be honest it made the LEI's look , slightly less better, or dare I say it silly and I was very surprized , this guy could fly a 15 metre in these winds, with such ease , skilled kitesurfer and what a kite , I want

Loved my 15m Soul. Could take it out in 25kts and still always feel in control. My Woo record is on that, 19 meters. Ended up selling it because it was just too much on a hydrofoil for me and I’m tending to pull the HF out more than my TT nowadays. I do miss it on those windy days.

9m is awesome and pulls like a rocket. Like seriously fast. No wonder the smaller 6 had the record. Prefer the 9m on longer lines seems to slow it a little and loop with out so much power.
