Re: North Evo 2012 9m, now wanting Dice 9m, comparable?

Hey, a bit too aggressive! I think Dan at North is the most honest and reliable brand-affiliated moderator just look at his post, and you'll see how balanced and not pushy he is I ride North myself and I'm looking to buy North in 2014 again. Huge fan of the brand and probably not going to switch to...

Re: North Evo 2012 9m, now wanting Dice 9m, comparable?

As this shape is new to us I have very little feedback from consumers, but a few of us have been riding a quiver of Dice pretty regularly around here and I feel we know it pretty well. First of all, as to your direct question about power, I feel pretty confident saying that the Dice has less grunt ...

Re: North EVO 2012 12m and 9m2 windrange?

Evo isn't loaded 5th line kite (Rebel and Vegas are) so the fifth line changes nothing when it comes to riding. The only thing 5th line has impact on when riding Evo is safety. I personally ride on 4 lines, the kite has good enough safety anyway, and lack of 5th line only saves some time when prepar...

Re: North EVO 2012 12m and 9m2 windrange?

I can't comment specifically on 12 and 9m kites, but I can comment on Evo in general. I have a 10m Evo 2012 and North site says the windrage is 14-28. I'm 77kg, riding 134x42 Nobile NHP and I can ride from 11-12 knots no problem. Basically as long as the kite stays in the air and has enough wind not...

Re: 443 Euros / 550 USD / 349 GBP for a bar? Have they gone

I'm actually fine with North bar price increase from 2012 to 2013, as the new bar seems to have a ton of improvements, including better lines (I wonder if they fixed the depower wear, if not - well, no comment). However the thing is they were increasing the price every year, even were no changes wer...

Re: 443 Euros / 550 USD / 349 GBP for a bar? Have they gone

This is standard for North, compare 2011 vs 2012 bars as well - prize went up a lot (30-40eu at least I think) and the only thing that changed on the bar was the color, nothing more. I wonder if the kites will go up 50-70eu as well as they did this year. Guess it's time to switch to Ozone or Slingsh...

Re: Slingshot Rally 2012 - No Pumps ???

I use SS since 2004. If the next kite I'd like to buy from SS is without a pump, I'll buy another brand. It is just ridiculus. Seriously? Your post is ridiculous, not the fact that they are not adding a pump.. buying 3 kites per year, why would I want 3 pumps each time and pay extra for it. Just bu...
