Hi, some feedback of rebel 9m 2010 at lowend:
- lowend similar to 2009
- very agile. More than 2009. Always very responsive
- a little lighter at the bar
- feels better downlooping at the wav
Bottom line, it feels smaller than 2009 with same lowend

Again: i only rode it in 13-18 knots.

See you!

I have a Rhino 2007 14m and will like to get a new Rebel 2010 but have not decided betweenn the 12m or 14m. I was hoping, since today's kites are more powerful, that the Rebel 12m will be similar to the Rhino 14m. Again today's kiters are more "depowerable", maybe the Rebel 14m will works fine. Any comments?

Hi yeah the 12 has more power than an 07 rhino but you are right they have much more depower and i am really impressed by the way it works with the floating strut. super depwer without much bar movement so awesome when its gusty. Depends on you wind? if you want to ride mostly in 10-15knts then go 14 for sure but if its normally at least 15 go for the 12 as it kiteloops that bit nicer!!!
You'll be stoked with the performance either way :bye:
