rpm is a decent foil kite

havent heard any rpm foiler raves reviews, but i just had a great light session on a old 9m rpm 10-18mph, stringy foil.
normally i ride flites, but my 8m blew a bladder so i grabbed an old rpm. was really impressed by the handling, drift and overall foilability.
nice thing is they dont pull on the hook too much, handle great de-powered, and are very controllable. they stall a bit if you try to take too much power from them, but thats it. i actually thought the down-loop turns were easier than with the flites.

lot of cheap rpms out there. ..

I keep a few old Rpm’s for when I can’t launch a foil kite , they are awesome for foiling just go to Hood river the home of Slingy’s and all the foilers are on Rpm’s or Sst’s.
