Unfortunately it was using a bar from a different manufacturer, and when I got the kite in the air, it was clear that the back lines weren't of equal length, but I decided to just make do with it and take it out while the conditions were good.
The first thing you notice about the Id is the bar pressure - its surprisingly heavy, perhaps on par with the Hadlow Pro. The Id requires a bit of force to get it to turn which irons out accidental steering, and can be whipped around in a tight arc when you are more forceful with the bar - it's clearly a kite which freestylers are gonna love!
The Id seemed very stable in the sky, and pivots on the bridle as the gusts come through, giving the kite a great wind range. It is a real pleasure to take out on the water and razz up and down with, but it's when you send this kite and pop that it really shines. It's capable of huge effortless boosts and has some very nice float on the way down too.
I didn't get any chance to test relaunch or unhooked prowess (I was concerned about the unequal length steering lines, and didn't want to risk it), but my 10 minutes on the water with it really leaves me wanting more... Hopefully I'll get a full review arranged in the forthcoming weeks. ... Watch this space :) ...
