Nice! Good to hear that. I have the 9m and 12m Pivots and don't get anywhere near the height or the hangtime I do on my Rebels. Pivots are sure fun for looping though!

Rebels jump different than Pivots, a tad easier as well as far as I'm concerned but once dialed in the Pivots rock as well

Yeah, definitely different, but you think the Rebel is easier? I think Rebel is a more technical wing with the potential for it to overfly your head as it screams to the edge of the wind window.

The wing is more technical, it has a very distinct technical feel as well but I always found the sweet spot to jump to be pretty big.. but that's just me...

I tend to chalk stuff like that to experience with the specific wing. :thumb:
