I have only flown the 15m juice. The 18m I mentioned was a dyno, sorry for any confusion.

The 15 juice seemed to have me powered as well as all the riders on 17m and when switching off and on with other kites it was the easiest to ride, I rode all kites on 27m lines when comparing them, but had a sweet 15m juice on 24m line session today, super fun and intuitive.

At 165lbs I would say 6knots lowend with the right light wind board and 0verlapping easily with 11m for high end. I rode 15m juice /nugget today while others where riding 12m, very fun and fast turning for big kite,

... nice one Billy, thanks for the review!! :thumb:

Will you get a chance to compare the 2013 Dyno 17m to the new Dyno 18m and when possible, Juice 18m?

Which of all the kites you tried, feels the closest to the good old 2011 Dyno 18m?

cheers,

Robbie :D

Iron seal, pencil and paper. First crack! Now I got to put the HUGE bladder back in the damn kite..lol...some four letter words will be used tonight I suspect!!!

Tell ya for your mainly surfboard riding in the shit wind capital of Australia, that juice does sound like a great possibility. Not sure if you need the 2011 type completely anymore,unless of course some you are gonna get back into your TT riding. The new neos were designed to allow the smallest possible kite in the surf, so I can see why the 15 is close to a 17, that is a similar comparison with the smaller neos really. It depends though if you want that obvious delta ish type grunt....or a more sublime race kite feel like the dyno.

Me I'm waiting patiently.... :D and patching my dyno 2011 for as long as it takes.... :D
