Thank you everybody for your input (which confused me a little bit...hehe).
Which one jumps higher/longer? Fuse or Evo?
What is the difference between the 2012 Fuse and the 2013 Fuse? I can get the 10m 2012 Fuse for Euro719.00 cheaper than the 10m 2013 Fuse. That's quite significant.
I understand you get confused
Because it will usually be personal preferences and experience, and particulary conditions that gives the "impressions" you get as feedback in here.
An example could be, that an almost C kite like the Vegas, will be able to give a really good kick in the ass when going up, so you either GET the highest jump with this one, or you "think" you do, because of the feeling.
Both can be correct actually.
One thing is for sure, it will not give the highest amount of hangtime, as the depower and projected area is too small - but it might be the highest jumper, if you know how to that is...
Then we can take the Evo.
A kite with loads of low end and power for its size, but really low AR.
Meaning, more difficult to get "high" - but when you do, it is a great hangtime kite, as it has more lift for its size, than the other kites.
So if you take off from a wave, you might get max hangtime with the Evo, if you take off from flat water, you might get much better hangtime with the Dyno with higher AR and less loss.
To make it even more difficult - you ask for the kite with BOTH the highest jumps and the longest hangtime ?
They are often mutually exclusive - meaning, fast turning smaller proj. area kites like C kites might jump the highest, but will have the shortest hangtime.
And really flat bow like kites will have the longest hangtime, and the lowest height in jumps.
Not always exclusive - but often, and the feel is definitely exclusive, one accelerates fast and has low hangtime, the other accelerates slow but has long hangtime.
So no wonder why you get confused by the different answers you get, as there might most likely not be a correct answer to that question
I would personally think the Dyno is the best compromise you seek, in the air.
But it will not hold up nearly as good as the others, as it is build "light" - which equals less durable of course. And you seek a strong and durable kite you write ?
Horses for courses, but the Dyno is build for max performance especially in light winds, which is not what you seek, althoug it might be the best compromise jumping machine ?
I know my post might not help you at all, sorry if the case.
But just to explain why there is no "true" answer to the question, as it depends on so many things that are not considered.
Regarding the Fuse and Evo if trying to generalize, I think the Fuse jumps the highest, but Evo just as long or longer, if you get height...
If I were you, I would choose the Fuse because of good allround performance and better durability than the Dyno.
The Fuse because you want a 4 line bridled kite (like I prefer too - but this is mostly because I am a lot into waves), otherwise the Rebel if you wanted a 5 line kite for jumping.
