I used the 12m for the first time & although I was dismissive of the hype re hangtime, it feels more like paragliding than kitesurfing ! I found the jumping was very easy & when you timed everything correctly, the height & float were better than anything else I have ever ridden. I found I was up there so long, you have time for a few tricks and then can take in the view !
The kite throws you upwind, as it should being a race kite, but was also usable enough for powered waveriding. The kites feel very powerful and the shape of the canopy in the sky looks very different - especially in black/red.
The bar material is a little on the course side and afterwards, I found that some skin had fallen off. The swivel is good, but needs a little persuasion at times to work properly.
