I'm looking at buying either an airush lift 12.2 or a north rhino 16.0 in the next two weeks. Just wanted to know what others think is the better kite. I've heard that the airush lift is faster and jumps better than the rhino, but it is really hard to water relaunch. What do you think?

I have been ridding the North and it is just as hard to relaunch. If airrush can be set up with a relaunch system I would get that one. By relaunch I mean the reactive bridal like Wipika.

Go with the Airush!!! They are much faster and jump higher. I have trouble keeping my kites on the water once they crash..... NO REACTIVE WIPIKA TYPE BRIDAL NEEDED!!!

Advice: try the others also if you can: Fone Mach1 and Takoon Skoop.

I choose Fone because of the predictable steering and think Wipika airblast and Takoon Skoop would be my second option.
