Nice write up Chris! I've had my two new crispy P3s out of the bag and out on the floor and I'm eagerly awaiting their maiden voyages at IBX! The person who chose the grey color needs to be flogged. :P

Thank you for the long term review of this kite, Chris. I do weigh your opinion quite strongly - especially your impression of the P3 over a period of time, and since you know the Peak kites so well. But you also have intimate first hand knowledge of many other kites, performance kites too.

I have had the feeling that I want one of these since they were announced, and the fact that they not only have new colours, but (substantial) handling improvements also, and durability. After reading this I am now sure I will change my 12m P2 with the new P3. I will pass on my P2 12 for a low price to a good friend who needs it, that way he can tag along on (all those) low-wind days.

I'm also getting one of the FS 3.0 bars, I think I want the clamcleat version as I'm most used to that and haven't been too comfortable with pull/pull system (..yet). My S5 9 has P/P, I haven't flown it a whole lot I must admit, but I'm gonna get there eventually.

My question for you, or someone else who has the new stuff from FS;
Do the longer 60cm wide bars come with 6m line extensions, or am I reading it wrong from the FS website ?


"The 60cm Airstlye Bar setup is additionally equipped with 6m extensions of the flying lines. Thanks to this feature, the low end gets even more effective when using one of our larger kites."
