Hi all! I am looking for a new ~12m kite (4-line) that I could use with the Airush Smart Bar. Any advice on what a good reasonably-priced all-around durable model is? I do not need anything top-notch, and it does not have to be 2014, but I do not want a drag either. Considering 2012/13 Naish Ride V1 and the two 2013 Ocean Rodeo models: Razor and Prodigy. Thoughts on which of the three to pick or avoid? Thanks in advance!
:-?
FYI, I am at the level of progressing with jumps and waves... Got an 8m RPM and a 16m Lithium, and they just do not quite cover the wind range for me.

P.S. If someone got a deal on a good used 12m in mint condition, hit me up!

I picked up a 12m Ride V1 recently because there was a great sale on them a few months ago.
And, I have been pleasantly surprised by this kite. Great all-arounder. I weigh 205 and have been using it with a 5'4" Sweet Potato in 13-22 mph on-shore to side-on wind and have been having a blast with it. For the price, might be the best bang-for-your-buck kite out there. Have never flown an ocean rodeo so can't comment.

I got a chance to ride my friend's 12m Prodigy. That thing is sweet, and sooo easy to fly, jump. Good drift for waves. It's the most fun kite that I've had the chance to try. Haven't been on the other two.

Thanks folks! Sounds like they are all good. Cannot find anything bad on Naish Ride, so, will go with it being the best deal out there.
