The Era 12M turns quite a bit faster than the 13M Roo. I know it is slightly smaller than the Roo, but compared to last year's 13M, the 08 seems a little bit slower. Had the 12M Era and 13M Roo out Sunday and it was the turning speed that was the most noticeable difference. The 14M Nemi was very impressive in the lighter wind as well. Turns much faster than the new Roo.

Default Era and Roo

I am 6'2" 200 pd and I have flown both the 08 Waroo 13 and currently own the 12 Era. I can fly the 12 era on a 138 07 UG in about 14 knots all the way up to 30 knots easily. I would own the 14 meter Era for light wind but my 15 HT RRD still flys great and can't see replacing it any time soon. When I was flying the 13 Roo it was about 16 knots gusting to about 20. Very stable kite and very smooth. It unhooked very nice too! Just seemed slow to my 12 Era. Other than that I really like the Roo. I think the range of the 13 Roo is very similar to the 12 Era. But if you are down in the tampa area I would look at getting the 14 meter Era! I know Scott and Bob have flown that kite from 10 knots all the way up to 25 knots! The range on that kite is insane for a big kite. With that range you can get away owning the 14 Era and the 9 meter 08 Roo. (I have flown that kite too, and it's freaking sweet)

im looking at the 15m roo,
what setting did you fly the 13m roo on?
have you flown the 14m era, if so did the new 13 roo turn faster then the 14m era

I would be interested in the turning speed set on AA for the 13m as well.
The 11m Waroo on AA seemed too fast and jittery, at least for me.
I wouldn't even consider putting the 9m on AA (would you, Danny?)
You really can't go wrong with the 14m Era for low end, turning speed, pretty good top speed, unreal jumps!, and other stuff. It's a sweet kite.

Wow. I wouldn't need coffee to wake me up on the 9 on AA.
I did an accidental kiteloop on the 9m in only about 16-18 knots trying a new unhooked trick and
thought I was gonna pass out. I landed right on my head full speed. Instant headache.
My point? It's fast enough to loop when you ain't even tryin'.
