Starting to hear some gen on the new line up.

Skoop 2 gets a new material supposedly 5 times stronger.
New tip reinforcement system.
Faster turn and more manovearable.. gonna be quick then!
Torsion system ?
Even more de-powerable... Duh!
24 segment leading edge... twin valve.

The durability hit is gonna make for a killer kite. Performance is already second to none imho.

There is another all new mid AR kite called the WOOK. Strong, stable and easy. Franz and Herve are tipping it for waveriding.

HI Gonzo

Do you know if the sizes wil be the same. I think I could read 11.5 on that one. I'm assuming that is flat area (or developed as they call it) and is the same as the old 8.5/11.6.

As usual now with Takoon, design graphic is shit...
It looks like my old Tshirt from the sixties.
What is your opinion?

My opinion is that I don't really care what my kite looks like. I never look at my kite when I surf...

Looks like the size on this one is 11.5 surface area so replacing the 11.6.

Design wise its a matter of taste. For me, I like them a lot, its like vortex designs with a splash of hiphop grafitti... beats 'go-faster' stripe styles as seen on most kites.
