Love the kite. I was looking for something like Bandit, to be friendly, fast, looping machine. Looked at few videos on the Web, committed and bought, and bulls-eye! I have Bandits 8/10/12 (2016/17). My Flite 12 is certainly faster than Bandit 12, and almost as fast as Bandit 10. Bandit being probably the fastest big brand, this says something, right? They attach the steering lines at the very end of LE, and it pays of for turning speed. Don't know why other brands don't do that. And it's remains stable. All other stuff is cool too (relaunch, upwind, etc - not sure why we even have to review this, all allaround kites now are cool).
Overall, it's a bit more aggressive than Bandit, due to its higher aspect (just my visual, never actually put one over another :). It boosts higher, glides better. But it's still friendly, loops nicely, doesn't jerk you like crazy if you put it slightly deeper into power zone.
