It may be up to me but to me the SLS feels like less for more..

I love the kitefinder-reviews. One out very few that try to objectively compare kites.

Like the approach to testing, please do not waste time on bag unwrappings.

I have an 8m Evo 2020 I have taken out in wild gusty winds 35-45kts, it seriously stresses the frame altho the kite holds up. In those conditions the SLS stiffer frame would help alot. In light winds foiling in butter, just an unnecessary expense. Overall that 2020 Evo feels like the designer was pushing the limits of the classic dacron/ripstop combo and needed steonger materials to work with, so SLS a natural fit.
