Rebel 2011 vs 2016

I'm thinking of upgrading my 2011 8m rebel to 2016. I mainly use it for jumping in the flat water and was wondering how the two compare. I really like the amount of power and jumping ability of the 2011 model and am hoping for something similar

Re: Fine Tune My Boost

I've always flown Rebels and really struggled to land jumps by just redirecting the kite .I learnt how to down loop the kite when landing and found it much easier to control the speed and softness of landings especially with smaller kites (8m 2011 rebel).I generally always do a down loop transition ...

Re: Thoughts on the 2014 5m Rebel for high wind...

My daughter also uses my 8m and has no problems .If there is enough wind for the kite to fly she will get going(10knots).The 6m meter just seems to be very sensitive to back stalling .I might be better of selling the 6m and looking for a three strut kite

Re: Thoughts on the 2014 5m Rebel for high wind...

My daughter has been using a 6m 2012 Rebel and it seems to back stall in light winds. She only weighs 30kg so she can use it in 15 knots of winds. I use the same bar and lines on my 8m with no problems .Are the small rebels prone to back stalling in light winds .It makes the kite a little unsafe whe...

Re: 2015 North Rebel

I have a 2013 12m rebel and really like it .It jumps really well and has better hang time than earlier models. Initially it does feel like it has less low down grunt than previous models but once you get used to the kite theirs no difference in the amount of wind you need . The upwind ability of thi...

Will 4 line north bar work on a Best kite

I have been teaching my daughter on a 5.5m North buzz kite that has a four line bar. I have been given a Best Waroo kite with no bar and was wondering if the bar from the buzz kite would work on the Waroo

Re: Want a good seat harness

Must admit the inside of the new harness doesn’t look like it will be long lasting. The material seems soft and thin, hopefully I’m wrong.
If this harness doesn’t last I think I will be looking at one of the Mystic harnesses

Re: Want a good seat harness

I believe it must be the 2013 fusion unless they calling it a 2014?Anyway it’s their latest design and the leg straps are attached to a much stronger part of the harness so hopefully they won't tear out. Time will tell

Re: Want a good seat harness

Just had the harness replaced under warranty with the latest model. The design of the leg straps has been changed and looks much stronger. Will see how it goes

Re: Want a good seat harness

Not many shops stock much in the range of seat harnesses as everyone uses waist harnesses. So I'm trying to find a brand of harnesses that lasts then try and track one down to try .My first Dakine harness lasted three years now they only last a few months :( .
