Hi. I own a Fly "v1"; the low end and stability are simply amazing for its size but you have to pump it very hard otherwise it can backstall in the lulls. Upwind is good even with a small twin tip. With the north Nuggett 2012 works great. Lift and hang time are both consistent. Not to mention It can be packed in a small bag. Overall I am very happy with it.

Has anyone actually measured the Naish Fly? Is it really a 15 as Naish claim on the website but not on the kite itself?
I wonder this because I just bought one (2012) and, besides it looks huge, the labels on the bridle say Fly.17m.
I checked the same labels on the bridle of my Parks 7 and 10, and they say Park.7m and Park.10m

???

Also, is there any difference between the 2012 and 2013 Fly?

Good low end, bad high end... Good for fat guys on TT, bad for light guys on race-surf boards.


Now that's how to say it. A full kite review in just two lines.
Lots more fun than reading a 17 page thread full of pimping.

And a big help in comparing kites to find my next light wind surf machine.
Well done PAFF !!!

Bin flying it for some times and two versions now. They should have put 17 on it...
Not that good upwind and pulls like a beast, but as long as you can ride you can pop. Sits a bit further down in the window than a lot of the big kites out there. It´s a kite you either love or hate.
The newer versions are a bit more responsive and quicker. But as a big kite you get really overpowered when you are owerpowered. So in it´s perfect wind great, really great lowend, but not that fun overpowered.
