Comments:
My review is from my two month stay in Brazil and based on freestyle kiting in the lagunes.
The HiFi X is an easy to use kite with great stability. As most of the C-shaped kites the high end is big and the low end a bit less, but compared to 2012 it improved a lot. TheHiFi X is a 5 line kite but for the relaunch you don't need to use the fifth line by pulling the steering line it will come up in normal wind.
About the safety system it's good to know when your not using your donkey dick you can loose the chicken loop when you pull your safety system.
This kite makes it really easy to learn new tricks with freestyle. Just because of the feedback on the bar and the sweet spot.
