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!!


Hi mate,

I tried the 2013 Rebel and it differs from the Fuse. The Fuse is a true jumping machine. The Rebel is more like an allrounder (in my opinion).
There was a teamrider or North Rep who posted that the Fuse jumps better than the Rebel. Anyone has the link? Maybe it was in the KiteMagazine. I can't remember where I saw it. But on this comment I took the punt and bought the Fuse and never looked back.
One of our guests arrived with the 2014 Rebel. I will try that kite in the next few days when I see him on the water and will let you know.

Cheers
Caesar 8)

Surely someone from North must be monitoring all this chatter. Happy customers wanting kites that are already developed. Come on North, give the people what they want. The kiting public must be satisfied. :D

One of the reasons I changed from rebel(2012) to fuse(2013) was the 5th line.
I'm not a pro. In the 7 months of wind we have here in Belém, I managed to Drop and tangle my kite arorund the 5th line 3 times. Once I was able to come back to the beach, with the kite flying all weird and twisted, other 2 times I had to be pulled back by a fellow kiter(one was a hot chick, so it was good after all kkkkk).

But safety wise, if I can get a kite that will avoid this, and also suits me better for my riding style, why would I go back to the rebel?

If north changed fuse to a single front line flag system it would be even better!

yep but that snot because you are new man, I did it as well even after 13 seasons. Had to hold back all the time in the waves eventually. Everyone has their opinion but I have seen the swim in by many others over time. This has been covered before but I'm the camp if you can avoid a fifth line do it!! Just happened way too many times to counter anything anyone says about the fifth line not being a problem. Empirical evidence only but enough to convince me.
