Hi!

Will there be much difference between 2009 and 2010 model?

Hi Sam, here’s a good review with interesting focus on the difference between the two vintages:

My research reveals maybe some minor tweaks in the small sizes ie. 6 and 8. Otherwise pretty much the same with the Diablo remaining a 5 strut kite (for the time being anyway.)

I don’t really recall what the ‘minor tweaks’ are as my research was limited to the 10m. By all accounts the 2009 Diablo is the best vintage. Can’t wait to try one.

Perhaps 2010 models will see a wider colour choice too?

I’m interested to know as well.  I’m pretty stoked on my 09 12m.  I’d like to pick up another one or two.

The 5 line bar will be quite similar, I can’t say anything about the Diablo and the number of strings struts.

Makes me wonder….

I can barely wait for this kite.
