I replaced my old Neo 9m2 with new Mono 9m2 last year. The Mono allowed me to hydrofoil in even lighter wind than the Neo while also providing good wind range, turning, and drift on waves riding a surf board. With only one strut, the Mono 9m2 fluttered occasionally if the kite was turned too sharply in overpowered wind, but that only happens when wind became a lot stronger and I was too lazy to change to a smaller kite. My recommendation is to go for a Neo if you have good waves on 9m2 days. If not, consider a Mono for light wind foiling because the Mono stays in the air in lighter wind slightly better than the Neo.

Thanks Jasontsai.
I actually had considered the Mono as an option. 9 Mono + 7 Neo looked like a good 2 kite quiver.
The Mono for foiling, and surfing in very light wind, and the 7 Neo for most days.
But the North representative here doesn’t carry Monos, so they are out of the question, making the decision easyer.
My choices are: Rebel / Vegas / Dice / Evo / Neo.
Between those, I think that Neos are the ones that will better fill my needs.

You're welcome, Adolfo. I think you will be quite happy with the Neos, too.
