I'm looking for opportunities for 12-17 kts. What do you guys think of the North/Duotone Juice of Mono? can't really understand the differences yet except the number of struts but would like to expand my Rebels with an ultimate light-wind Tube kite for freeriding only on my TT...

Have you tried the Contra? It sounds like exactly what you need. Can you demo one? Try it back to back with the Juice. I think the Mono isn't what you want with single strut. Single strut on TT is a low performance combination unless you way 100 lbs/45 kg.

I'm looking for a new tube kite for hydrofoiling in marginal wind.
I've been looking at Naish Boxer because I'm using Naish for twintip.
But since this kite is not sold in my home country, I can't try it before buying.
I am looking for experiences with the boxer, I'm not sure if I should choose the 14kvm or 16kvm.
I am also interested in experiences with other brands that can go so low in the wind as possible, but also sail well.
Thanks in advance
Henrik :)
Naish Boxer is my absolute favorite, I have 12m and 9m sizes and love them both. If you will use it for hydrofoiling, I don't think you need anything bigger than 12m; the larger sizes will have more pull but will not be turning as fast. I would say that 12m already is pretty grunty.

Peter Lynn Synergy ,just released,light weight ,low bar pressure,good drift and easy relaunch. Only available in orange/black across all sizes ,not a problem for me ....as long as it's not pink it's ok
