Difference between a Sea Devil ‘Light’ and a Sea Devil ‘Standard’

Hi Everyone

Can anyone let me know what the difference is between these two kites in terms of the frame differences?

Many thanks

Yeah, it's 3PT LE's in the light, with 3PT or 5PT spreaders.  It makes a huge difference in the low range, and I find that with a light and your midvent, you need really nothing else.  Except maybe a full vent Wink .

Hi Obijuankenobe,     Changing the LS to 3PTs, what wind speed will i be able to fly the light and will tricks be limited?

You will be hard pressed to find any difference in the low range in regards to tricks if you change the LS's.  You low range will benefit a good amount, i.e. you can dip as low as 2mph with nominal effort. 

Might as well do it so you'll have both since a 5pt equipped light can handle 14mph comfortably.
