Already arranged mate. :wink:
I would just like North to continue and further develop that Fuse with another valve system.

Hello Caesar.
Just bought a Fuse 12m 2013 and i'm loving this kite. I'm coming from the Rebel, so i'm feeling at home, but this kite has the extra punch.

Got this kite here in Brazil and North dealer is burning them for 4000 reais for any size.
I'm trying to sell my airush vxr 17m to get another fuse.

Damm you North!!


Hey Caesar, did u managed to fly your r/c plane with fpv?

Best regards

I'm with ceaser on this. If anything I'd get rid of that annoying fifth line and drop the rebel line myself....ooooooh controversial I know, I know. :D

Switchblade / core (the new X3 looks nice hey) are all good jumpers but they lack that little more aspect the fuse has.

As for the edge, its a full blown race kite and takes a lot more timing to jump properly. What I have found it the edge will go big and long but it does this best when you are really really lit and needn't move the kite much, when loading and boosting. Thing is the incredible range of this kite allows you to do this as it keeps its forms right up to a riders top end given their weight.

But it doesn't like current and it doesn't like waves...which go hand in hand.

The fuse/rebel is much for forgiving in those conditions, does not require as much board speed and power to jump big and will start jumping earlier....you can jump with little notice and in a short space of time. Important in choppy or wave conditions. The edge require you to line it up to really go big. But when you do watch out!!!! Can't beat the glide that's a fact.

So I share ceasers disspointment and I don't even ride fuses and not longer ride rebels!!

How do you know Fuse is cancelled? What are they adding to lineup?

Hi,

My North dealer told me and it was confirmed by North itself when I asked for confirmation of that.
Dammit! :cry:

Cheers
Caesar

Added a surf kite called the dice I think, but not meant to be fuse replacement.

Fuse did have a complicated bridle to make up for loss of 5th line support. Evo is a great kite, i hope it sticks around
