The new Neo is indeed a solid and powerful kite. It's one of the kites that offers massive power and precise handling. My 9m Neo feels like it is bigger. It turns on a tight radius and pulls strong. Power is not explosive, but rather builds and gathers till you can really feel it. It has a very good sheet and go feel and you always get good feedback through the bar. If you never used a NEO before, you should know it has a lot of grunt, so it requires some effort to get upwind. It is also almost impossible to fully depower it when it reaches the upper end.
