Hi Caesar,

Very interesting thread as I am also looking at something that goes high and glides well.

What did you chose in the end? Fuse or Bandit VI? Or something else ?

Anyone knows how they compare jump wise?

I had a 12m 2010 Fuse and loved it. I then changed to a Nitro II 12m because of valves issues and crazy pricings for spares but I was very disapointed with it jumping wise.

Now looking at my options and would like feedback before making my decision. :)

Cheers,

Ben

Hi Ben,

After many sessions and also testing the 2014 Evo, I opted for the Fuse.
Since North does not proceed with the production of the Fuse, I just bought a few more of them. I have now following 2013 Fuses: 4 x 12m, 1 x 10m and 1 x 9m.
That should last for some time.

Cheers

Thanks mate, I think I'll go for a 12m Fuse then!

Hey Caesar,

Just wondering why you bought 4-12m kites when I thought you wrote that you only use 10m kites? I see that you bought a single 10 and one 9. Just curious as to what changed your mind to go for the bigger kites?

I can kite the bigger 12m Fuses in higher winds due to the better depower.
So that is my main kite here now. When winds go above 25 knots, I use the 10m and above 30 knots the 9m. Above 35 knots I drink beer (or use one of the smaller Switchblades of my girl).

Someone told me that the 2014 Rebel jumps very good again. Give it a try.

Fair enough :thumb: I was just curious as to what changed your quiver size and that works for me! I have a 2011 Evo and find that it is a nice kite! Have you used the older Evos compared to the new 2014 redesigned one?

I gave those a go too. Not bad either but they are still 5 liners...(I hope that doesn't start a new 4-line/5-line discussion).

Yup, tried the 2012 and 2013er Evos. But the Fuse (and 2014er Evo) is a completely different league.
