Both are great kites, but they have clear differences how they feel. When comparing the feel of the Rhino7 and Rebel08:

Rhino:
- more hangtime oriented
- more race oriented
- not the best wave kite as there is a minimal delay in the steering that you notice if you try Rebel08 that has even more direct feeling
- in low end just one or two divings and then lock and go
- to get very huge air the technik and timing has more importance than with Rebel

Rebel:
- easier relaunch
- very direct steering
- more allround and wave kite
- would suit better for unhookin than Rhino
- low end power by flying the kite more agressively
- little bit more forgiving than Rhino
- easier to jump as does not need super technik and timing and still goes huge and maybe just a minimal difference to Rhino in hangtime

I had Rhino07 9m and now Rebel08 9m.

THE big difference for me is Rebel is more forgiving (07 or 08 ), Rhino is more powerfull.

If you want to jump high go Rhino for the rest go rebel.

Lets see how Rhino08 is.

I would like to have a quiver of
7m + 9m Rebel + 10m Rhino
In my opinion, for this the Rhino08 10m just has to be more agile than last year.
