Hi,

I'm looking to buy new gear. I'm between the F-one Bandit 7, 2014 North Rebel and 2014 Naish Draft. Will probably go for a 9m, a 12m and a 14m.

My current riding style is more towards hooked in tricks using high jumps and hang time but I might like to start dabbling with unhooked tricks in the future.

So ideally, I'm looking for a kite that is responsive and offers high jumps and hang time.

Any recommendations?

Thanks.

3 very different kites aren't they? I think the Rebel is the best all-rounder for what you want, no?

I think you need to knock the Draft off that list . . . unless the smaller sizes are better.

Agree Kamikuza. Will knock the Draft off the list. Still torn between the rebel and the B7 though.

Is it worth going for the B7 for the smaller sizes (9 & 12) and get a Rebel 14? Or is it better to keep them all the same model?
