I'm thinking of getting one. I like what I'm reading about it.

My goal is to get a little more low-end for snowkiting (I'd swap it out for my 12M Rally) but without losing any high end.

Curious if anyone has flown it and how it feels at the bar? Thanks! Thumb's Up

I'm bringing one to Baja this week. I'll post up after I get a chance to fly it. Heavier construction than my 2012 17m Turbine. The 17m weighs 9.5 pounds, the 13m weighs 9.2 pounds.

Nak! How did they work out for you?

I just got back from a Colorado trip and was able to snowkite a bit. My 12M Rally just doesn't have the pull for me in light wind like it does in the water. Was hoping the 13M Turbine would work better.

Most of the local guys are flying 15M LEIs as their light wind kites, but I as snowkite rarely...I really don't want to buy a 15M. 12M has always been more than I need for water. Just need a little more juice thus I'm thinking of trading in that 12M Rally for a 13M Turbine.

Thanks.
