I love the Bandit. It sits more forward in the window than the Evo does.
The Bandit is also more responsive, has better drift for wave riding and boosts higher.
If you are looking for an allrounder then go for the B6 you won't be sorry.
I'm in the market for some new kites and I'd recently narrowed down my "kites to demo" list to specifically these two models. When I got to finally demo these kites, my experience was the opposite of Jack's. I felt the 2013 Evo was actually more responsive and drifted better. I'd say the Evo is more like a fine tuned Bandit. The Bandit's hangtime was great, but the 2013 Evos I felt were even better. The canopy on the Evo was also way more stable as well. The Bandit still fluttered a bit, but it was calmer than the 2012 version. However with all that I experienced, I think you'd be happy with either. If you want a 10m or bigger, I think having the 3 struts like on the Bandit offers better performance for it's size, but for a 9m or smaller I think the stability of 5 struts like on the Evo is better.
