Anyone tested or owns the latest Crazyfly Raptor Ltd 2020 Twin Tip? Looking to get one for boosting in high winds. But there isn't too much info available.

I have not tried it, but I do have a 2017 model, used once - bought brand new from kitepower 5 months ago. Happy to sell it for 400.

I have the 2017 model and I love it, it's a super smooth ride, however I find it to be a little power hungry, it doesn't give you as much pop as other boards might, I put this down to the rough finish on the bottom of the board, I think it creates a lot of turbulence under the board which makes for a comfortable ride but makes it hard to release the board From the water for a good pop.

I have just taken delivery of my Raptor Extreme, and Had 3 sessions, totalling 3.5 hrs, first 2 were in big chop / high tide Conditions and was very impressed and today in relatively moderate to smooth water. I went for the Nash Apex pads/straps as I have used them for years and wasn't disappointed, top notch. Coming from a line of carbon boards re North Team Series and recently the Nash Drive which I loved, but it was time to move on after having riden a few models of the Monarch. My search started for a faster board with great grip but didn't splash you in the face and was acceptable in the chop.
i had read the recent kite mag reviews which prompted me to ring around notable kite shops in Australia that previously sold and we're current CrazyFly dealers which confirmed, I was on the right track. A bit of a gamble ! as I normally only buy what I try. I ordered it through the local dealer.
I totally recommend it with high points in all areas, especially Big Air. The grip/ speed control and final release / pop was the best I have experienced and was always in total control.
I have the 135/41 and have just fitted wth G10 fins, all round a perfect combination for me at 80 Kgs in varied wind strengths re maximum 25 kts and kite size from 10-12-15.
