Have you ridden the F2 13m? How would you compare it with the Nova 2 12 (awesome low end for a 12 but tended to stall with the bar in) in terms of low end?
Not that much, as for my weight (around 75kg), I dont use bigger than 11m2 for "normal" conditions
(or a 12 as with the ENova2 and Nova2)
For light wind the 11m2 Nova3 is my "big kite", for freestyle and everything
Still very fast, and fast turning - and HUGE raw pull !
I've invested in a Furia2 11m2 for "normal" conditions, and a Nova3 11m2 for light wind condtions - works fine
As the Furia2 is extremely fast, and have the ability to be depowered a lot and more through the window with a bit faster profile than the Nova3.
Sounds odd to have two kites the same size maybe - but worked PERFECT for me, as they are different and for some reason it is the area that determines when a kite is too big when you are light
For ultra light wind (and another board, maybe a raceboard) - I use a bigger kite occasionally, yes.
We are some surfers here "sharing" big light wind kites, as they are used quite rare, and under very special conditions only (special high pressure summerweather for longer periods f.ex - but we dont have that very often....)
So here we have a 13m2 Nova3 (sometimes with extra long lines) and a JN 15m2 Da Vinci Bat
(we are not millionaires any of us... so thats a good way to get a "luxury" kite)
But all these (have also tried other kites/other brands) kite sizes SUCK to anything but light wind IMO, when under75kg.
Thats why I stop at 11-12m2 with my weight, for the "good" sizes usable for waves and freestyle without feeling "big"
The 13m2 Furia2 has about the same low end as the Nova2 I think....
Cant say for sure though, as I've only ridden it a couple of days (a demo kite) - and the Nova2 is "5 newer kites" old now:
Nova2 - Furia - Enova - Nova3 - Enova2 - Furia2
But the Furia2 in 13 is a VERY different kite than the Nova2.
Lower AR and REALLY fast turning
Do not backstall easy like the Nova2 could - and you can still "slow the kite down a lot" on purpose in waves if you like (that goes for all sizes)
But as said - for my weight these kite sizes (13 and up) are usually not "interesting" at all....
