OK Wind conditions were gusty for an SUL. Took it out just to get some footage for this video. So I was most of the time at the edge of the window. Manage to pull a couple of tricks when for small moments of time, the wind went down to levels where I could do tricks.

As for my first impression... The kite feels very solid on the lines. It tracks better than any other kite I have flown. To perform the tricks I needed to pull a little harder than my F.C UL or Duende 2.2 (I guess it was just a matter of trying to pull the tricks in higher winds. The yo-yo stoppers did their job well never missed them. When flown rolled up its easy to still perform turtle based tricks. I need to try it with a better wind condition for an SUL.

I do think it honors its name "Advanced Trick Machine" I nailed the Lazy Susan Cascades in my first session.

This is just a quick review on my ATM. When I get the chance to fly it in better conditions I will post a Detailed review under the Sports Kites Reviews Section

Here is the Video:

Thanks Rob.

I think the same. I'm waiting for better days to fly it and really unleash the kites potential.

Nice work.

The bits from the 2:00 minute mark on are contrasted so nice, kite and background, they could've been edited in after the fact!

Can't wait to see this thing in action (when you get good winds) with Backspin Cascades and more of the reversing lazies and hopefully a Loooooooooow down fade.  Grin

It will Happen. I'm just waiting for a day with the perfect conditions to fly it.

Should not be a problem in Miami, FL.. Should be great on that first day of 2 mph east winds off the Atlantic ... <BG>. Nice backspin cascading which seems to be your favorite signature trick (move). Nice!
