Hello S2000kiter. I love this post, since I own a 12m A15 in normal cloth. And have the Jackomixer too. Love it !

Have you done any other mods? I'm especially trying to sort out if something can be done about the tip stall/tucking at edge of window while flying statically. Maybe this is normal?

You seem to really know these kites well, so appreciate any help. I'm new to foils so learning a lot from all the posts.

Hi I would just like to say thanks to S2000kiter. I just got the A15 12m light version too and it is a fab kite for light wind on the hydrofoil!

About 5 or 6knots on a Gong M. It flies in a bit less.

Interesting kite. It's so cheap. I wonder if it is really better than the soul?

Maybe "better at" teaching foil kite tuning.
* Soul is just ride'n'enjoy kite and if not flying satisfactory anymore after 100h of flying then do simple mixer-resets and enjoy next 100h. And if not flying good or you break it in first 12-months, send it to Flysurfer for free repair. If sea shell cuts your bridle, you have access to lineplan to make your own from fishing line or you can order spare parts.
* Pansh is a rip-your-hair, learn airfoil theory, ask a lot and tune -kite from factory package, "do immediately" jackomixer mod rings any bells etc. Pansh is most probably better at losing it's re-sale value, I'd not buy 2nd hand Pansh but Soul I would and after Sonic-3 the 2nd hand Souls are more and more available with good price. Also Pansh is better at *bad* after sales support... *sigh* what I've heard? Pansh expect you to measure the bridle by yourself before 1st usage to create your own lineplan that you know how to repair it later if you cut the bridle line with snowboard.. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

But in the end if Pansh is better than Soul it does not matter. It is cheap and if it delivers enough power to your harness at desired direction and does not put you into risk of death then it is fine. If Pansh has a problem/design flaw, just do not generalize that foil kites are like that. Soul is a big air boosting machine ('Soul' holds EU jump record 28woo-m from *flat* water, WR 33woo-m is from *wave kickers*), Pansh has a lot to catch if you consider it to be at the same segment as the Soul. In Soul the 20y foil kite & paraglider know-how is in the cost, in Pansh only the material and sew together?
