Re: Rider feedback please - Rebel 2018 on 4 and 5 vs 2017

Thanks pikovsg for the review! Can you comment on the depower stroke - does 2018 still depower like a Rebel? Or just like a good 4 line kite?

Re: North Rebel 2014 vs 2012

I have 2012 8m and 2014 5m Rebels. I don't see a big difference in performance - love both kites.

Re: Hindenburg

You need to think if you really want to kite in these conditions... sometimes is better to live to kite another day.

Re: North Neo 2017 12m - is it slow turning elephant or quick turning light strapless freestyle low wind kite?

It all depends on how you set the back lines pigtail on the kite and how big a bar you use. I have a 60cm bar for my big kites...

Re: Shoe goo on depower line to prevent wear?

SO after all I decided to NOT use shoe goo because I fly North Rebels with 5th line and I'm afraid the shoe goo would wear down the 5th line since shoe goo is quite hard when dry (or jam if I coat the 5th too - shoe goo is not slippery...) I looked up the sur-gaine on google, that seems a nice optio...

Shoe goo on depower line to prevent wear?

So the other day I had some 6mm spectra and a tube of shoe goo on my desk...
That got me thinking about putting them together - a home-made urethane sleeve for the depower rope.

So let's hear it... crazy idea or not? Haven't got around to try it yet.

Re: Bags - broken zips, crap pockets, any good replacements?

I would ask on the Switch forum, Switch sells kite bags as stand alone.
Ikea sells the best kite bags (do a search on this forum, I posted about it recently...)
