Any reviews on the new Duotone juice? How does it jump and unhook? Looking for a light wind kite for TT riding.

What do you need to know?
It unhooks well, loops great.
Easier to time jumps etc but technically not as high as the previous Juice.

My favourite light wind kite on a twin tip of all time so far.

Just had an epic session a couple of days ago on a Juice 15, in something like 14 kn.

I’m into old school, so don’t unhook.

All I can say is that I’ve spent the first 20 minutes without my hair ever touching the water. Did not miss one trick, one jump, one loop. Everything just felt natural.

Really had a blast.

This is the only review I could find with a 5.5 for handling and no explanation at all, I am curious what they really dislike..
