Hey Guys,

question for the octane 12. A german magazine mentioned the 12 octane was much smaller then the raven2 12 and rhino6 12. They say its like the size of a 10. DId you guys noticed this too?

Second question, whats the windrange of the 12?

Beats me,

Never flown a North or Naish kite in my lifetime.

The 12 windrange is pretty big, I would say from about 15mph up to you can't handle the kite and are getting tea bagged like a cheap piece of meant!

Too me it looked like a 12m kite, turned like a 8 or a 10m and jumped to the moon.

Honest review? Sounds more like sales hype to me.

No sales hype, honest opinions from people who live here in Cape Hatteras. Not everyone who put a review on the Octane or Turbo Diesel works for REAL.

Everyone in this forum knows I work for REAL, yea, I am a salesman and also a daily kiteboarder.

Thanks,
