what sort of info are you after and about what sizes?

Basics across all sizes;

easy relaunch, feedback from the kite lets you know where it is in the window. Stable in all conditions, eats up gusts and loves to be flown at the top end of wind range.

responsive and turn quicker, though not major jumping kites as they were designed more for wakestyle (TS jumps beter). Generate power more power lower down in the window and likes to push forward in the window

well it will be a 10 meters. I'm a begginer and I wonder if it would be ok to go with this kite.

BTW I have a 2008 10 mtr HP. Is it a good idea to upgrade to the taboo or should I stick with the HP.

i've had;

the nemesis hp V2 and V3, the taboo and the TS

The nemesis 10m hp is really more powerful than the taboo 10m. The taboo is a sweet kite but it lacks in two area, lift for big air and also in the low end.

I would say that the TS 8m has probably the same low end as the 10m taboo.

So is it a good thing to change your nemi for a taboo 10m; one thing for sure you will find it a lot less powerful. It all depends on what you look for; the taboo is better unhook, it also loops better. You will also miss the lift of the nemi.
