Not yet, but would like to try.

My 13.5m Kahoona v1 has served me well, but has too much crossover with my 18m Dyno.

Current kites I am considering are North Rebel, Best Roca and Epic Screamer all around the 12m size. Already tried the Best TS 12m and was not for me.

Any experiences from heavier riders (97kg) would be appreciated.

I have not tried it myself but seen another guy on one a twice now. He seems to get some good height and hang time on a 9m in moderate 15-18kn wind while I was on an 11m drifter.

Does he always jump big, or is it a noticeable gain from his previous kites?

So wit the rock does this mean they have dumped Lenten'd Exact? Or is it similar to what happened the Taboo where another company wanted 1000's as the name was too similar in their opinion.

Best opting to change the name to TS instead

I think it's going to replace the Kahoona. The extract is a completely different kite.

A new Len10 extract has not yet been released because Ruben cant test the prototypes, he is off the water. I am sure that in the future, the extract will be released.

If you don't like the TS you're not going to like the Screamer. Same kite essentially, very similar. TS just has unhooking ability.

Try the Rebel or Core XR4 is you want 4 lines and don't want to deal with 5 lines and North flimsy lines.

Has anyone heard if there is going to be a 2016 version of the TS?
