Good to see a new design out for 2015. Started withe the Sea Devil then my trick options "exploded" with ease with the Fearless. Then the Transformer 1 which is like the Fearless but in a smaller frame. Tricks were faster/easier/more pleasurable in lower winds when using the SUL  in lower winds. Although the winds were low kite movement stay quick and responsive. Sold these then moved to the superior tracking T2 which I used last summer. INCREDIBLE.
There is no problem in staying in one of these models and also no problem upgrading as the relearning curve is normally one or two days for an hour as all inputs don't really change.
Fearless - dependable trickster making the Sea Devil obsolete.
Transformer 1 = Quicker with a smaller frame. If your older and your hand speed is slower like me try this kite on 50' lines. LOL.
Transformer 2 = Sharper movement between tricks and superior corner turning. A good Precision kite with trick capabilities - strong feel with the SUL - feels powerful like a Standard in 10 mph winds when flying in 1-2 mph winds - does not have the fragile feel when spanking it HARD in 1-2 mph winds. Stronger larger frame and more responsive than the Fearless.
Tattoo = Can't be defined with WORDS - a SSUL with its own magic and with separate learning inputs and a learning curve. Magic at 0.5 mph. IMO takes 3 months to fully master the basics but its a kite that takes you to an area of low wind like no other? Hugo?
GPS = ?

I may try a SUL? Keep me posted but T2'ing in Asbury Park, NJ this year (LOL).

I've been asking Lam about the SUL - he tells me he is working on it, so that is excellent news.

The standard has an incredible wind range.  I've flown it in very low (I'd say UL range) winds as well as in the teens and it never missed a beat in feel or performance.

Lam's SULs are amazing, so my hopes are up for this one as well.

Loved it!  Not only cynique machine but also wap do wap and crazy multi yoyo.

Sweet stuff - I see lots of new combos for me to explore with this amazing kite.

Thanks Lam.
