Blade Trigger 12m

I've only got to land board on it so far, so it is too early to give an informed review. But if anyone wants to demo any of my kites, you are welcome too. Just hit me up at the beach. I've got:

Freak Dog/EH

In boards I've got:

Freak Dog

and soon I'll have a custom carbon kite surfboard hand made by Buddha.

After getting plenty of rides in on different conditions, I've got the lowdown on the Trigger. I think it is closest in performance to the Cabrinha Switchblade IDS kites.

The pluses are:

lighter bar pressure
faster turning
super easy relaunch
better IDS type system
costs 35% less than Cabrinha

The minuses are:
less low end - not as "grunty"
not as well known in the USA
need to pile extra sand on it on the beach or it will fly away
