9 times out of 10 I can self-land a 4-line Evo OK but my home spot is really confined. I did have it invert and take off upside down once whichcould have been much worse. I have wondered what would happen if the safety flagged out to only one front line. Would it work or would it cause the kite to spiral?

Re: Rebels and the Rhino 07s, the front lines stretch over time, the fifth line becomes too tight and the chances of line wraps and inverts increase as the kite can flip on its back too easily.

I got 2 Rebels 2010 early September.
Lovely 6m and 9m.
Kites got tested in Brazil and made me very happy.
But I'm still looking for opinions on Evo. To be honest I'm not a wave rider and no chances I will be one anytime soon after my last injury.
I really would like to progress with freestyle and learn unhooked tricks.
It looks like 2010 Evo is already for sale in few online stores and officialy released by North in December 2009.
So if you get a test ride or get one yourself please let me know your opinions.
Thanks!
