NPX Assassin 5/4/3 Wetsuit Review 

 
Ooooo that hotcell insulation is so warm.  NPX got it right with this one.  A wetsuit which is thin and warm works great for kiting.  I'm the type of person that goes from full wetsuit to boardies so I needed something that would get me from icemelt to 60 degree water.  Lake Erie warms up so fast once the seasons change might as well skip out on owning a steamer, a thin full suit and a shorty before going balls out.  In previous seasons the extra cold season was missed because the old 4/3's just were not up for the icy waters.  After a year of use, these are the things that really stand out about the NPX 5/4/3 Assassin:

The wind eventually backed down enough to being way overpowered but in control of the 6M.  Mark and I got a short but intense session.  Probably won't see that again until the fall or if a hurricane decides to blow up and visit us from the gulf this summer.

The weekend forecast looked pretty dismal on Friday as we were trying to make the call whether the rain and storms would be as much of gloom and doom as they were calling for.  It was going to be a morning decision.  A new 12M Havoc  4 just hit my porch Friday that I wanted
