Totally different styles of kites...No?

I would think closer to compare the Fuel and B IV....

I normally ride the Wainman's and rode the Rally (thanks Shy) at Sherman this last summer. Haven't ridden the Fone yet.

Each time rode the Rally in soft wind, so can't give a fair report. Soft & lofty jumps and hang time...Rode 12m.

NO, the Rally and the B4 are both delta 3 strut kites (just like the Wainman) intended for a wide variety of riders. Had a go at all 3 and my personnal preference goes to the Rally (the fastest), then the B4 (very good al-lrounder) and then Wainan (more grunty and less refined) but depending on different taste this could go either way.
