I tryed the Naish X2 12.0, and i don't think it's better the some of the others 2002 models.. It turns fast yes..but that's it..

Another day on the water today. As you know the kitesurf Worldcup starts on Friday here in Austria. Today we had very gusty wind from southeast between 3 and 6 bft. I went out with the 8 X2 and fixed the lines a little different. Steering lines in the front, back lines more to the middle. The kite was still turning really fast. Nearly too fast. But it helped to keep the kite in the air between the gusts. It seems for me, that the kite is flying faster than ARX. And once again i was surprised about the range you can handle it. More tests to come.

Yesterday I tested the 12 with the trim both outsides. It was turning faster than the setup before. I had great lifts and longer hanging time than my ARX 11.5. I also compared it to the Slingshot Fuel 12, which was slower, had less lift and less hangtime than the X2.
