Comparison from kite mag reviews. Although 10 m Roam and 14.5 m Flite. These tables in my view support my feeling that the Roam is the better all arounder.

Love the punch line conclusion on the Roam “… even the most hardened cynics among us can’t deny Ocean Rodeo have come up with something remarkable here that will go on to change the performance of modern inflatable kites.”

How the Roam scored better Hangtime than the Flite makes no sense to me. Maybe in relation to it's category!? but even then...
