My Comments:

The JN Mr F is a brand new design from JN designed as an all-round kite. The design is "swept back" which is basically a delta C design. I have been using the Mr F to teach with and really good for beginners to advanced riders. The kite is really powerful low end yet has the depower to handle the high winds too.

The build quality is amazing, to be honest not many kites are made poorly now!

The bar is simple and uncluttered. Simple cleat de-power and push away QR.

The Mr F flies really well and there is just enough bar pressure to give you the right amount of feedback. The kite was stable in the low winds and forgiving in the gusts. The kite jumped well with nice high floaty jumps. Unhooked Mr F handled like a C kite, powerful with plenty of pop. I was surprised by the amount or low end power the kite offered, even at 12knots the 8.0m had me playing and having fun.

Main Features:

Optional 4 or 5 line setup
Simple bridle construction
Stitched in design
Single inflation
Light and durable Teijin sail cloth
Kevlar bumpers
5 strut construction
Less bar pressure

Mr.Fantastic is now available! Test it and convince yourself...
Available sizes: 4.5, 6, 8, 10, 12m²

- Huge windrange
- incredible depower
- easy relaunch
- direkt and good responding steering
- extended hangtime and good lift
- really easy goin upwind
- easy to handle for all rider skills and conditions

A further interesting feature is the way of sheeting out. By using the Switchcraft II, you have the some options for sheeting out the kite. Regulary, Mr.Fantastic sheets out at one frontline. Second option is to use both frontlines which lets the kite just front stall. For big wave surfing it's possible to attach your leash at the Oh'Shit handles at the backline. Additional recommended for extra strong or super light winds a optional five line conversion is possible too.
...and of course SC II offers the four possible barlengths 42cm, 46, 50 and 54cm.

For more infos contact me via PM

hope you talkin about turning speed; very directly combined with tight curves / loops and balanced turning speed, not inert and not nervous. E.g. in waves the kite really feels perfect, agile, dynamically and direct.

The kiteloop feels moderate in loops. It's not that aggresive punch which blows your hair away but rookies to advanced will appreciate the pull. Big advantage is that mr.f catches you after the loops, so it slows down the hard landing because of its dynamic flight characteristic. From some small loops like at transitions to big loops in heights, the kite satisfies with enough power to let you feel what you searching for.
