Anyway today was the first flight day for both of them and wow things have moved on.
The supernova is an absolute delight to fly. Compared to my old Gemini it is so precise and does exactly what you ask of it. I'd read a few reviews and they talk about leaving the lines alone once you've started a trick and they're bang on. With the Gemini I had to have tension in both lines pretty much all the time but the Supernova just behaves itself.
Build quality is a thing of beauty and I'd have it on the wall if the wife would let me but never going to happen.
The Superfly UL is a lot more subdued but just lovely to fly. Because I wasn't expecting it I hadn't bought light enough lines so it wasn't given its best opportunity to shine. But I can see its going to be a bit more of a slow evolving love affair.
To conclude. I still miss my old Outer Space but these new kites are a world apart from what I'm used to. It's going to be a fun summer.
