It's hard to quantify certain performance related aspects of our products so we have to let our customers speak for themselves.
This is Wade (last name removed). You sent me a bladder for my 10m 09 Rebel to see if it would help stiffen the airframe. After a lot of 30+ wind where I only flew my 7m I have finally got some time on the 10m. Since you sent me the bladder I found out the majority of my problem was solved by pumping the kite harder then the 6psi recommended. However the last time I flew the kite with the stock bladder I experienced the kite making noise while transitioning. It never folded up but made me nervous. Since I installed the Airtime Orange bladder the kite has been rock solid with no fluttering or bucking. My confidence in this kite has been restored which is a good thing when you kite in the red triangle. I believe at least a certain amount of stiffness could be attributed to this bladder. Thanks for everything, Wade
