Comments:
I had a hydrofoil session with the new Neo 9m in very light wind for this size. The 9/12 knot where enough to lift me out of the water and ride. So the low end is great ( like always).

The new Neo feels the same, had the new click bar in my hands and I believe this gave the Neo a slightly different feel.
So, the Neo is pretty the same, the new click bar gives it a bit more compact & direct feel.
