Had a nice session with the Montana9 10m. This land kite is very easy to control. Good bar feedback, de-power and soft power building. The tips sometimes collapses a bit, but didn't result in a strange feeling on the bar. The 10m had a quick steering reaction and a good turning circle ( max bar steer, 3 loops from 12 O' clock be for the Montana would toch the ground ).
The fast reaction, soft power and short turning circle made the kite pretty playful. Great kite for the first snow tracks or back country sessions.
