ION 5 Review (10.5 and 12.5)

Both kites generate a lot of pull from the first down stroke and it makes it easy for a heavy rider such as myself to get up and planing. Superb float and awesome build quality. The package i think is only let down by the bar and lines. The depower strop is difficult to reach when fully powered up and the lines seem to tangle just by looking at them. Ive since replaced them with the hadlow id teflon coated lines and in contrast those are probably the best lines i have ever seeen. I would defintely recommend this kite.
