Hi
My SeaDevil std.  is 305gr.
Any idea how much weight would be SD light and does less weight can make harder tricks were  inertia is important  as a  roll up (yo-yo) tricks for example?.
I read a lot good stuff about SD light version, didn't have chance to try it,
 I'm connect with SD standard.

 thanks a lot
boris

Hey Boris,
I don't know the specific weight of the SD light, but I have a light and a standard. The standard flies nice in 5+mph wind, while I can fly the light in 2-10mph wind. You don't give up any performance, there is no trick that I can do that is any harder or easier on either kite, they are very similar.
I say if you like the standard, the light is a worthwhile addition to your bag.

The SD Light feels and tricks very close to the standard.

That's the Light I was talking about. The UL and SUL are noticeably different.

Normally I would always prefer a ul over a std considering the wind where I live.
My sea devil std has such a huge wind window I almost consider it a ul.
Not to mention it doesn't pull much when the wind picks up.
