I just bought a TS V8 and we had a blast! I tested it in Dakhla in +30 knots and these are my thoughts on it:
•My main feeling: this kite is more focused on freestyle & wave than the previous model (V7). It hasn´t got written "waves" in the canopy (as previous models) but we tested it at the Point D´Or and it performed really well.
I found it really similar to my Slingshot RPM both are open-C kites. My friend @antoniooms rides Cabrinha FX and he said they are pretty much the same. These types of kites, although being freestyle-cross over kites, are very versatile
New model has got 3 ribs, is lighter than the V7 and holds the gusts really well. It has a bit more bar pressure which makes you feel more power in jumps-turns-carves...
Inflation valve is a bit cumbersome, but without major problems (better V7). The bar is pretty simple and easy to roll, although the grip of the bar is a bit rough.
➡Best TS V8 is one of the most versatile kites in the market, and without a doubt the kite with the highest value for money out there◀
PS: I love the new design
