Saw the new Fuel at the weekend, thought it looked good, less like bad taste Christmas jumpers than 2011s.

Rally looking better too, one or two tweaks design wise, but nothing too significant, but then it was a pretty good kite last year, so not too many changes needed.

Split strut for 2012, well , seems like Slinghsot coud have this done in 2011 Fuels, just an excuse to update to 2012s. :angryfire:
The Fuel is a great kite overall. :thumb:
The new graphic at the wing tips for 2012, reminds me of the REV.

think what you will but the way that the development cycle works is that the 2011 Fuel was signed off BEFORE they decided to try a new version of split strut on the 2011 Rally, we flew the rally with split strut in June last year in the Gorge and it was up until that point waiting on the decision of the importer meeting as to wether or not to include it on the Rally, they still had tweaking time on that kite.

the 2011 Fuel was a done deal.

its not as cynical as you want to make out.

It appears as if you are commenting (obviously..) on a picture of the kite (s) , which I am not able to see both here and in the blog. Would anybody be so kind to repost the picture(s), Thanks!
