Hi,
Does anyone have any opinion on this kite? Beginner, intermediate, advance? Pros & cons? Thanks.

I hear that these kites run a bit small. Ex. a 9M is more like a 7M. I've only heard this and have not confirmed this myself.

my buddy used to have a 13m gto, and he did say that its equivalent size was 1-2m smaller. here's a wind range chart i found:

My 11m gto is more like a 9. Turns super fast because it's so low aspect so needs a small bar. Haven't used it in a couple years, thinking about selling it or trading for a 6 or 7 meter. Good for learning, could work well in waves too.
