In the last 10 days I have had 3 sessions on my XR5 12m and 4 sessions on my Pivot 8m and I am having to say that I am preferring the Pivot ATM just because of it's ability in the waves. If I could have bought a 10m Pivot today I would have.

What I would like to see though, is that same ExoTex Dacron used on the Naish as used on the Cores.


Did you tried the Nexus? If yes, how do you compare with the Pivot? I am in a similar situation as you, having a 12 an a 8m, but both are xrs5. I'm starting on kitewave so i am wondering about get the 10m to get that sweet spot. I haven't tried the Nexus or the Pivot, and hardly ill get the chance to test them before buy, so a sincere opinion will be much appreciated!

Haven't ridden the Nexus, would like to though. I'm about 500 klms from the nearest kite shop, so I don't get the chance to try before I buy.

If it is from the Naish Range I would pick a big Boxer (one strut kite) for real light wind. That is what I am going to do next year, adding a 14m Boxer above my 11m Pivot

How did that combo work out...11m pivot/14mBoxer. I am trying to decide between 14M boxer or 14m Pivot for light wind days
