Just ordered myself an Element 3 all terrain kite. New construction specs plus an opt out for bag and pump made this too good a deal to pass up.

Got a little time on the 9 yesterday. Waves were small and the wind started light building to well powered. Most everyone was on 9 and 10m kites. The kite has decent low end power. What I thought stood out most and worth mentioning were the downwind drift and the ease of flying the kite one handed. It made for fun down the line rides. Was impressed on how easy it was to steer the kite thru the bottom turn and redirect it for the top turns all one handed. I think I am going to be very happy with the Elements :D

+ 1 on the element.
I was finally able to ride my new 9 and 11 m kites.
Both fun, predictable, and easy to fly.

Its the kite for sure. I suck. The bar pressure is perfect. Its whatever you like.
Am i pimpy enough for the pimpin club? Ha ha

I dont know honestly cause i havent flown alot of kites but always like the kite i am flying. Thats cause i think kiting is fun :D

What i can say is its really easy to fly one handed which is unlike any kite i have flown, nitros methods envy and thrusters. I would guess that equals light bar pressure cause im wimpy. Ha ha

I've recently had a quiver of blade triggers.

Bar pressure: medium.
It's heavier than the trigger.
Pearse's comment on the one handed steering was right on.
