Re: Duotone Juice 13m - how's the real low end compared to 12m Rebel or XR6?

Few? There are absolutely loads of 12m Neos here in Exmouth, it's a popular kite! It turns much better than Juice (wingspan is far less) and has a lot of grunt. Neo build is heavier than Juice, but bridling is much more simple. I'm heavy, over 120kg. I also have 10 & 8m 2019 Neos.

Re: Duotone Juice 13m - how's the real low end compared to 12m Rebel or XR6?

I've got the 2019 15m Juice with 2019 12m Neo and use with surfboard & foil. Previously owned 9, 11 & 13.5m XR5s. Neo & Juice have much better lower end than XR5s, latter in particular due to light construction of kite. See my old XR5s not flying with new owners when my Juice is in the air. Juice do...

Re: Any reviews on the Duotone Juice?

I've had a Juice 15 a while now & have used it lots this summer with surfboard, twin tip and foil in a wide range of conditions. Need to be careful not to oversheet it which drops power. No experience of 2018 version. Initial impressions were posted here https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=240...

Re: Maneuverable Seat Harness

Sad that Mystic stopped making the Supporter seat harness which I found really good. Have been using Ion Radar for last 18 months which has been good. Have just ordered another one & this has the new style over-centre cam tensioned spreader bar, would have thought that their rope slider spreader bar...

Re: flysurfer soul long mixer test

It sounds a long way off at 4cm. I did both short & long mixer test on 3 Souls, heavily used 12 & 15m and a barely used 18m. All needed adjustment on short test, strangely the 18m was most out but none needed anything altering on the long mixer test. I'm not saying yours aren't out of adjustment by ...

Re: Xr5 15m lightwind? Or

I had 13.5 XR5 and chose to have the 17m as Core Free LW which is 3 strut to save the weight and lower aspect helps with low end too. Personally I didn't feel I needed extra stability that the 5 struts brought for majority of times it's being used. When using my Free 17m in light winds, it stayed in...

Re: Anyone got any sneaky info on the new Duotone Juice??

Juice 15m arrived last week and managed to use it last night with surfboard. Wind actually came up whilst rigging but rather than re-rig with a 12m Neo decided to press ahead. It was very gusty with me having to use trim between both extremes and often somewhere in between. Kite handled really well,...

Re: Gath Helmets with Visor

I haven't used either of the above Gath helmets, but have owned a Gath Neo for over 2 years. I bought it due to repeatedly getting neck ache when driving back from foil session with all the falls that means for me! I was using a Mystic helmet at the time and after research learned about the bucket e...

Re: Anyone got any sneaky info on the new Duotone Juice??

I posted on the Juice launch thread asking for the same information, but got no replies. I have a 15m on order, ought to be here soon, but forecast looking iffy rest of this week!

Re: Duotone Juice 2019

Has anyone tried one of these yet? If so do you have comparisons with last year's version or other light-ish wind kites please?
