For a big lofty Jump go with the Fuse.

Look at the specs on the 14M Rebel and 14M Fuse. The Rebel has a slightly higher AR and slightly higher projected area than the Fuse and will by default be a better boosting and more floaty kite. I've ridden both quite a bit and choose the Rebel over the Fuse. The Rebel is a dedicated 5th line kite where the Fuse is a 4 line with an optional 5th line.

But if you are looking for the best kite to get big lofty jumps on then go with the Ozone Edge. The 13M Edge will do nicely. If you weigh under 150 lbs then go with the 11M Edge. It will fly as big as the 14M Rebel or Fuse and you have a lot less kite to manage without giving up boost or float.

I've tried a 14 m Fuse 2011 in 20 knots and the jumping ability was awesome, but I never tried a Rebel in same conditions ( only 14 m Rebel 2012 in 13 knots and I didn't like it, also because the bar pressure was higher and the kite feels slower ). So at that moment is +1 for the fuse and +1 for the rebel...but maybe I have also to condier 13 m edge ( I am 70 kilos ).

Dan at North has mentioned in previous posts that the Fuse is as close to a Rebel as you can get without needing a 5th line, but the Fuse jumps higher than the Rebel.

I'm liking my rebel, but I've never tried the Fuse, so can't compare.

Need to get my hands on an Edge, but they're so damned expensive! Worried about investing that much in a kite before being able to try it.

I ended up with the Edge by surprise, the missus bought me a 10 and 15 for racing.

The kite is insane. Upwind, downwind, speed and height.

It is by far the easiest kite I have ever used for getting silly high!

I can't wait to try it on my local flat water spot in some decent wind.
