    The chat with you and Carlo was awesome, a great feature of this review.

    Greg, what vario/integrated do you use/recommend? I'm a beginner pilot who has avoided using any fancy equipment up to now (trying first to get a feel for thermals)… But I'm starting to research what to get

    Thanks for the review, this wing was under consideration post PG school. You mentioned you think it may be a little advanced for an 'average' beginner for coastal soaring and XC dreams? If so waiting for the Prion review 🙂

    I tried the wing. It was awesome. I think I'll buy it.

    Hi Guys, I have just bought one and have flown roughly 3 hours in it. It is my first wing straight out of beginner school where I flew mostly the prion. I feel really confident flying it. It is fun and forgiving and has a lot of room for me to grow. I would highly recommend it. Thanks for the review it certainly echos my experience with the wing.

    Hi Greg, quick question… the Ion 5 or epsilon 8 which would you prefer to fly?

    Thanks for a great review as always Greg!
    Would love to hear your thoughts on comparing it to the Symphonia?

    Excellent review Greg (and Carlo). I'll stick with my Ion 4 , but good to see informative reviews like this to help pilots select a wing from the many choices out there. I noticed Greg was using the new Supair EvoLite. I have recently purchased one but haven't received it yet. Is there a possibility of a review on that coming out soon?
