Yes, that could be fine too - but no size 11 in the draft series neither...for the ika it looks like a range with unequal numbers in the line is to prefere: 7-9-11-13-15-17-19 could makes the best and most combos.

Regarding the video - yes I got too see it, and the kite and hangtime looks sweeeet


I was looking at the sizing too, and it was an odd jump...I am guessing it is because the 9 and 12 sells the most. I mean over here from as far back as I can remember size 9 and 12 was "the quiver"..ie those two sizes were given...if you wanted more then you added around that. The is pure speculation tho.

Does anyone have dates when these babies will hit the stores? My charger is getting a bit worn...

No not yet. But it was pretty clear that if I had sent it to the sky I would have followed ;)
The feeling in the kite is amazing!

I am interested to see how this kite performs as a race kite??? if it performs well then i would like to know if it will be offered in a greater size range? i guess if it's successful then yes.

If there will be more sizes available in the future will Naish introduce 13m+ sizes in the 5 strut configuration for riders that want to race it in stronger wind conditions.

Eh. I dont get what you mean? The kite comes in 7,9,12,14 and 17
I have been lining up with both North Dyno 2013 and RRD addiction and it went very fine. None of us is pros, but we are at the same level and therefore it was easy to conclude that this is a very good race kite. Once again the feeling in the kite is sublim. Just a shame that it is not IKA registret as it could be nice to try it in the circus here. But for national races it will do fine

Most definitely me too. Mine will primarily be race kite...but the I'm hoping it will be good as freeride too. I think the sizes seem fine but I get the point. I'm having a bit of a problem deciding on the sizes to get but I'm not sure if more sizes would do anything to help that..loll.

I was looking at getting an Ozone Edge 10 & 13m which suits my weight & the conditions i will be riding in. Then Naish released the draft and as i already ride Naish and am used to there feel i am interested to see how they perform against the other race bred kites.

So i'm looking to see how they perform and if Naish will release a 10m model and a 13m model in the 5 strut configuration not the 3 strut 14m which is designed more for lighter winds. I'd be riding the 13m in 20 knots +
