I have the 12 & 8. I buy my own kites and have flown most major brands over the last 4 years.

To date these are the best kites I have flown, but like everything different people want different things from their kites. For me I wanted:
- Rock solid construction after a few seasons with some big name brands not living up to the quality construction you would expect.
- A great jumping kite that has the explosive launch of a c kite with the hang time of a bow.
- Quick Turning,
- Stable when unhooked.

It deliverers all these and more.

I´ve heard about the zulu, but never tryed it

Tryed the gin Naska 12 m already and it is a good kite

Rock solid contruction, and you think only the "brands" make them like this
Good feel with the bar
good turning-not the fastest though for a C kite
good jumping
stable when unhooked
The 1 pump system is required these days of course

I prefer hybrid SLE to C SLE´s but it´s almos the same... maybe Naska has 65% depower


Im 90 kg been riding for 4 years with intermediate level 124x38 pike board

hope ppl here dont bash me much but:

Supported Leading Edge (SLE)

nazka is almost SLE, it doesnt have a bridle like hybrids (most, except rebel), but has a 5th line that supports the middle of the LE so you have more depower but not all depower you could have with a bridle and not so fast

Dear riders
I do not have much experience in kiting.
I have a kite gin nazca2 12m, it makes sense to change it to a new one, if this one is in good condition. Feel a big difference, for example with a fone bandit or a switchblade?
