I have been riding different kites since I have started kiteboarding about two years and a half ago and the kite which I most liked was the F-One Bandit 5 2012, I had this kite in 9m and 12m, both of them worked really great.
However, here in Argentina the F-One dealer is very small with very expensive prices, so I had to try another brand when I sold my Bandits. Now, I have bought the North EVO 2013, again in 9m and 12m. After a couple of sessions with the 12m (there was not enough wind to try the 9m), I am veeeeeeeeeery disappointed with the EVO, the kite moves very slow thru all the window, when jumping (hooked) the kite moves very slow, it isn´t as fast and versatile as the Bandit was, I am really missing the F-One. For your information, my ride style is free-ride / wake style.
The short story is that the shop that sold me the Evos, is offering me to change my both kites (paying 200USD) and they will give me two 2013 brand new kites. Here is where I need your help: am I making a good decision on choosing the 2013 Vegas? Is this the North kite most similar to the Bandit? I really miss the Delta C shape of this kite and how quick it spins all over the power window, I understand the Vegas is a pure C kite, not delta, but I think the Bandit is closer to a C kite rather than a delta one.
Thanks in advance for your advise and experiences!
