Any opinions or differences. Anyone had any time on the 13m2?

I own a 13m, and it behaves more like my old 2008 12m in terms of feel, and delivers like the 2008 14m. I’m 98kg and it’s the biggest kite I need. Last Saturday the wind picked up from 14 to 19 knots and the 13m was easy to hold, the range is excellent. Tried both 42 ad 49 settings on the bar, both worked fine. Jumping is easy and the hangtime is sweet.
what’s your weight?

Im 86 kg, and I like my 2009 12m2 Rise, but would like some more power at times.  With the new redesign of the 2010 Rises and the improvment in the high end I’m leaning towards the 13m2.  I do kite in the gusty Gorge where it does gust to 21 kt even on the light wind days.
