No changes this year - at least not untill after Xmas. 2010 kites will continue through the 2011 season. Great news for anyone with a 2010 model, it's still current!!

There will be a new bar coming - should see samples pretty soon in Aus.

I liked the bar, with the DANGER wrong way on the back of the bar. The skinny short depower rope could have been better, but worked if you could grab it, and the safety was a bit, well what safety? I had a blast first time i flew the smoke nice and grunty, had more than my B3 and was smooth. Couldnt believe how good the setup was out of the bag it came with the biggest spares/repair kit i have ever seen with a kite and a wetbag and enough stickers to cover your car

The 12m (Boss) is awesome. They are all awesome. Huge wind range. Enough said

12m is grunty, great relaunch, stall resistent in light wind and turns fast for the size. The 9m is even better, definitely my favourite of the range (7/9/12). That said, I do hope they come out with a modern bar (mattress knows why :-).
