If the FUSE is the SAME as the Rebel, then get a Rebel and cut the FREAKIN 5th line OFF. Hmmmmm???? Then you can C if the Fuse and Rebel are the SAME????

Not possible to cut the Rebel's 5th line (of course it is possible, but it wont perform without it). It is a design issue. I wished they would get it sorted and get finally rid of that stupid 5th line of the Rebel.

I'm very disappointed 'bout this decision. I've been North customer since 2005.... :(
I'll stick to my 2012 Fuses. Rebel it was my love but the 5th line is an hassle.

bhaaaaa : :-? :cry:

I was anti 5th line but now after riding my Vegas for a season I realize that 5th lines are no reason to not buy a kite. Get over it and you will be happy you went 5th line. If you had a problem with 5 lines kites from years before they are different now. Quit dropping your kite Ceasar, come upwind to where I am riding I will show you.

Hi mate,

I'm sure that was sarcasm from you. :lol:
I kited the Screamers (9m and 10m LTD) and the Fuse just last weekend at the same conditions in Baleia/North Brazil and the Screamers were boring as hell compare to the Fuse. All that Epic writing is just a big hype.
Now you Epic followers go on and tell me different. I hope someone will come here and we will have a session side by side.

My Epic stuff went to the local kite shop here in Cumbuco this morning and is for sale. Come and buy it please- you will get them at a good price.
I just wanted to get rid of them and then never want to hear anything of Epic again.

Cheers
Caesar


Good for you. if you don't like the EPIC kites, You should move on. Youve made a decision. Do you really need everyone to afirm your decision?We've done side by sides and many would not agree with you. BUT, everybody has their own opinions, right? I hope you enjoy your new gear and get really high!

I moved on to North as I wrote and I wrote nothing about Epic until someone mentioned Epic Screamers. I responded to that and that I never will go with that crap again. It was not me who started Epic again.

But since you came to this tread, what is your opinion on the Fuse? Or did you just come here to make another stupid comment on Epic gear?

So it sounds like then the Rebel and Fuse are NOT the same kite?? Glad we finally got that Dead horse beat to a Pulp and over to the Glue factory!!
