I,m on the 1200V2 Kool and love it. what would be the notable difference with the Kruiser please?
I got both of these, as my two big wings.
Using both quite some also, on different occasions/days - but of course a super luxury thing as they are pretty "close".
The 1200 is awesome for riding waves or just having fun in light wind, when sufficient wind, can turn on a dime, start early and really easy and forgiving.
The Kruiser (1100 cm2 higher aspect) can start even earlier than the 1200, and it goes far better upwind, so for marginal winds or for cruising on long distance trips in light wind, it is great
Sometimes I use the 1200 in more wind too, but the Kruiser I use mostly in really light or marginal wind - which happens quite often though.
And it can happen, I am out on say my 800 cm2 medium wing with a smaller kite, the wind drops a bit, or there is less power out on the water than I expected, and instead of rigging a bigger kite, I put the Kruiser wing on and can ride
The Kruiser is extremely roll stable, so for practicing jibes and tacks is perfect.
