It's even better that the 2013 model which is awesome. It has more grunt and better low end. It's a kite that gives you all in light winds. It generates solid power, it is stable, it does not flutter and drives upwind like a rocket. Jumping with the Turbine is awesome. It has a smooth lift and huge hangtime. It rocks when hooked, but it also runs great when unhooked, although I'm not sure I can pull off quick loops with it. Control is direct and feedback very good. However I can sense a bit of lag bar response in very light winds. It is a large kite and can be easily become overpowered in strong winds.
