I completed my lessons and can get an attractive deal on a 12 answer
Is it a god option as first kite? I will appreciate any comment

It is very easy to control. Goes upwind great and has lots of depower. I think any newbie should go with a bow kite. After your skills get to new levels, you will find this kite, will meet those needs also.

I have a 12 answer...great kite huge range.One negative feature
is that if you don't continuously watch this kite in lighter winds it will fall out of the sky much sooner than any other kite I've owned.This is a fairly significant drawback as it is a pain in the ass.Lines get crossed etc.Leading edge heavy so kite falls and flips on itself.Other than that great kite(seriously) T

Not sure if I agree with the above comment about falling out of the sky.
Sure it will fall if the wind light'ens up and you have the kite in front of
you....say 45 degrees. Just grab the front lines and give it a couple of
yanks and it will square away. This is an excellent kite for anyone,
especially a new kiter. Very forgiving with plenty of range. It ain't
cheap in our area. I love my 12m.
