Hi guys,I hope you can advise and help me decide - I am looking for a new wave kite to cover 27 - 35 knots range (me 70 kg on 5`10 surf).
Deciding between Religion 5m and Neo 4 or 5.
- how would you compare Religion vs Neo - drift, turning speed, stability in the gusts, upwind ability, bar pressure (...)?
- would really Neo 4m equal Religion 5m as North website suggest you should go one size down? I am bit worried that with 4m I would be going too small. My next kite is 7m.
- can Religion be flown on North trust bar?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

I would say 5m neo purely for one reason and one reason alone.......the bottom end. It's not very often you have a perfect session on a 5m kite quite often for the frontal really strong winds the winds are patchy and have lots of holes in it. On the gusts you will be flying but on the luls you sining like a mother f&#ker, the neo has really good low end which will broaden your wind scope and elongate your sessions. Other than the above stated in my opinion and my opinion only after owning both brands the religion is a better wave kite in all other aspects
