560, 560 M ...
520 , thinking lower volume for beginner skis, so will there be 520M one day?

female paddlers, lighter males and the youth in the beginner/non pro levels ... are their numbers that small compared to 1,90m/100kg males semi pros and pros that volume diversity (two versions per model, lol) beginner boats is such an issue for the manufacturers? as a "V8L" in V8 pro thread

"OC: Yes, complete changes but still keeping the lookand feel of the Nelo brand. I would say they are more stable and have more comfortable buckets and footwells. I have kept the length which is a game changer."

some pics of the 560 M on montionspaddla (use google translate), here the width is given as 43cm, nelo website has it at 45cm

Just for completeness (I did a quite thorough search for 560 info before I ordered one), a review from the UK:
www.ultimatekayaks.co.uk/newsdetail.asp?NID=58

And a nice review from Scandinavia on Facebook:

And a last one from Sweden in the local language, but google translate is your friend here:

Ludovic, did you receive your boat already?

My NELO skis have been shipped, and should be in Brittany (France) any day now. I cannot even begin to tell you how anxious I am.

No worries.. here's the plan:
Receive - Photos - SHARING - Having fun - Testing - more photos - SHARING :)

Uffiliation and Merijn!

Thanks a lot for those links.

There is an especially interesting chart in the first review showing the effort vs speed on different skis.
