Comments:
i chose it because of it s relaunche abilities. A big minus is that it is quite hard to feel the right pressure in the lines while starting the kite. I can feel it better with other kites. The GTS has a more direct and better feeling starting the kite.

I forgot to mention that the Valve is really making problems and comes appart frequently. They have changed it with the XR 3. If You are buying the XR 2 watch the Valve and get some sparen ones.
