Darry, you're speaking of the Organic, isn't it a too radical kite ?
I 'm looking for a versatile one.

It is, as its capable of the extreme tricks. However I think it has very good balance in a fade and on its back. Pretty pitch as well as spin oriented. The easier or intermediate tricks do not get lost. Nice thing I like about it is how you are able to more easily control the trick speed, fast or slow.

However based on the high wind that you mentioned, maybe a Sea Devil Mid Vent is a good idea? Never flew one before but heard it has lesser pull than a Nirvana in high wind and for a Mid Vent it goes pretty low as well.

what would you say as the most popular versatile freestyle kite ?
You already have that mate ... the Nirvana.

-Frazer

He said most popular versatile freestyle kite.
Not most popular antiquated competition kite.  Cheesy
Besides, he also said he doesn't want a kite that pulls like a John Deere.  Wink

Sea Devil why not ?

Talon seems to have also go reviews as I can see.

The Deep Space might be more radical than the Talon.

Does any body have any feed back on the pull of those kites ?

thanks

With the Sea Devil you are also getting a Comp style kite much like your Nirvana, so some may feel it's a bit redundant.  On the other hand you de get a nice full size kite that pulls considerably less than the Nirvana with a sacrifice to precision.

As for the pull on the Talon and DS it's quite simple, they don't.  Both kites provide ample feedback, but don't require the flier to lean back.

Fearless - its looking like its the last kite I may ever buy.  Smiley

Light pull, flys well, and very eager to do tricks.  It does not have the precision of a (properly) tuned Nirvana, but its pretty good.  Trick-wise, its a dream.

The Deep Space has a fairly light to medium pull. Not bad at all.

This is true ... but its a real handful big winds ... it gets too quick.

I wouldn't fly mine above 10mph.

regarding to your reviews, my heart seems bending for a Talon !

Which wind range would you consider for a std and for a UL ?

Does anybody have any picture of his Talon to share ?

thanks

I'm trying to choose between a std or an UL  Undecided

looks like the UL is a bit better accomplished than the std...

wind array is quite wide for both.

UL is about 2 to 12

whether anybody as a std and an UL, from which wind speed would you take your std rather than your UL ?

Can someone explain what "radical" means in this context?
