Have flown Prima Donna 12m. Excellent kite, fast, good jumping, great depower (even without 5th), very easy and fast turning. One of the best!

Have flown the 16m Prima Donna...very fast for a 16, extremely light bar pressure, very big jumps! Seemed to have extremely good high end. Low end was average. Overall, great kite.

I had a 14m Wild Thing (which I just sold on ebay). Its about as good as a conventional kite can be. Very fast. Very fast turning. Good range. Good upwind. Great jumping. Huuuge pop for wakestyle moves. Outstanding safety systems. I never crashed it in 12 hours on the water so I can't say how it relaunches. :)

I sold it cause I want to buy a flat kite and I have plenty of other kites that cover the same wind range as the JN and are not as sellable.

got a Prima Dona 12 about a month ago to replace my rhino IV 12 and I am loving this kite a lot for it´s responsiveness, ease of use, hang time and exelent control bar system.
