There is definitely a crossover in performance and personal technique. I think a kiter who is still looking to improve their jumping skills, someone who can do some rolls and someone who has a few tricks in their repertoire. The feeling of the kite is also something that gives you more confidence to learn tricks, knowing where the kite is you are able to feel things a little bit better. I think mid level to advanced kiters will definitely notice the difference in the kite. In my opinion the kite becomes a little more racy, a bit more edgy, a little bit more punchy sometimes, you can really harness these performance benefits if you know how to and as you improve you'll only feel the benefits more!
