The NRG 2013 got a high performance face lift, and Liquid Force made this kite water relaunch better at the same time.
LF made a bunch of small corrections to the 2013 NRG that made huge performance gains. The direct connect trailing edge bridle offers reliable relaunch and snappy turning speed. You will find the NRG has a lot of wind range per kite size and heaps of low end power. Most people are riding the NRG one kite size down because they can.

What we like:
We have never seen a Liquid Force kite like this come to market. They broke their addiction to low aspect wake style kites and finally made a kite with a performance turn, low end grunt, and max air time. The best part is that the NRG relaunches as easily as the Envy. Two other stand out characteristics are how easily the NRG goes upwind and how much wind range these kites have. We also found that the power band has a really smooth on/off delivery.
What we don't like:
The NRG delivers a lot of power and if you don't have the kite trimmed properly you can get a big power surge when you unhook. This is easily corrected by pulling an inch or two of depower before unhooking. As with the other LF kites, the quality of the kite construction is second to none, but the bag suffers from junky zippers and side compression straps.
Why you want the 2013 NRG:
A high performance kite that is easy to ride is very hard to find because they tend to be unstable or too twitchy. Once every few years a good one comes along and for 2013 the NRG is that kite. Smooth power band, big airs, over head kite stability, and upwind performance will let you feel like one of the top pros at the Triple-S even if you are just a weekend warrior.
