Flysurfer Sonic 9M Impressions


Just a short video test of the Flysurfer Sonic 9 M. Overall I really like this kite, its very fast thorough the window and produces very good lift and float. It makes a great engine for any sport. Compared to the speed 5 its a way better kite.

The sonic is just a better performing kite, its faster and feels lighter in the air compared to the speed 5 and seems to excel at moving fast at any angle and dosent seem to be as sensitive to back line tension like the 5.

If u like riding fast and hard then these kites are for u. This kites love to be pushed and lift is easy with just a pull of the bar as u can see in the videos . I'm not so sure how relaunchable they are on the water ive heard they were a little troublesome because of the thin profile compared to the speed 4. but overall very nice kites. I got deals on 2 of these for almost 1000 of retail by shopping around so there are deals around if u look. if u need more info on a website with a good price let me knw.
