People are saying soul is more stable. No doubt it is. But I have 13m v2 chrono and it's also so super easy and stable. Haven't had any problems with instability. Other people also keep asking when I have dropped it to water, how did you manage it get it up :D I'm also wondering it by myself every time
I'm a rookie to Souls and every time I water relaunch post-crash I ask myself "What did I just do?" Seems to relaunch with minimal input from me.... or it doesn't :(

You’ll get adjusted in how to relaunch a foil. Sometimes it requires back swimming to put tension on the lines. Other times it requires numerous “yanks” or a large amount of pulling on one line. I don’t remember the last time I haven’t been able to relaunch my foil short of the wind dropping basically down to nothing. This is why I think the Soul is the best out in the market right now. It’s ability to relaunch is the best there is. Can’t wait for the next Sonic. I predict more performance with almost the same ease of handling.

Out of interest, have you directly compared the Soul to most or all other options? I have no doubt that the Soul is fantastic, I'm just interested to know which other kites that you're comparing it with that you flew?

If you're asking me... Nope. I went from Park to Pivots to Clouds (for 4 years Clouds) and now I'm dabbling in Souls. Clearly a world apart from my usual Cloud experience.

I've flown Speeds, Sonics, Pyschos, Chronos, and kitechs. Haven't gotten my hands on a hyperlink and I definitely want to try a Nova sometime.
