are you in side shore or side off conditions ? Im in southern California with side on/on shore and I need as much power as I can get. Maybe thats why Naish says its good in onshore conditions but the pivot is good in side/ side off. I did like the neo when I flew it though. It just doesn't have the low end that the Naish kites have. The Neo drifts killer though !

I prefer to generate less power so I can redirect the kite without being pull out of the wave. Also is important the skills of the rider but also the kite.
I have NEO and SST wave kites. Same board, same rider but the SST kite keeps generating more power when looping. When I am looking to buy a different wave kite brand I look for kites that don't generate much power when looping the kite. Kite finder reviews helped me decide what kite to buy. cheers

The Boxer might be a little lighter but the slash turns so much faster. My Zeeko Spitfire turns so fast that I like my kite to turn fast too. I usually don't even try to foil if the lows are less than 7mph and the average is less than 10mph. I didn't drop it so I don't know how much wind it needs to relaunch. The boxer surprises me how it relaunches in like 7-8mph. I just got my Soloshot 3 today. If theres enough wind tomorrow Ill test them both out and try to add a video.Dwight wrote: ↑Tue Nov 14, 2017 11:49 amTell us more....
Typically the lightest kite wins.....when foiling. I like a kite so light it doesn’t require attention to keep it from sagging out of the window due to weight.
