Have to agree with the other reviews of the C Quads. Have used three different sizes and although they are damn powerful for their size - and more importantly price, they are massively un predictable. Lose sight of your kite in mid spin in a buggy or board and there is no way of telling what its gonna be doing when you re- sight it unlike a foil which is pretty easy to pre empt.
Have also had a lot of trouble with broken spas which as mentioned are easy to fix, break a bridle (or in a lot of my cases the bridles come undone)- if you dont get the length exactly right when you fix it the kite becomes a monster to control. Was starting to lose faith in kiting until I realised what C Quad flying for 3 years had made me miss out on, when returning to foils recently (Frenzys) the whole aspect became lots easier. No unpredictable power surges, control, no breaking spas or bridles- kite flying has once again become enjoyable when for a long time it wasnt !
