I have 2012s in 10M and 14M.TonyL wrote:Anyone have any feedback on the 2012? Concern I have is the comments that the kite loses it's shape when powered up a bit. I had a Rev back in the day and the kite taco'ed on me when ever was lit. I am looking for a new 12 M tube. Looking at North (Rebel, Fuse, Evo) or Slingshot Rally. Want a big boosting, lots of depower, fun in the waves kite. I ride switches and they boost big and sick range (very stable). Looking for something different that is also better in the waves.
On my 10M and 14M 2011 Rallys (not the smaller sizes), when I was at the high end of the kite and I really leaned into them (water start, bad crash where I didn't let go of the bar, basically, kite flying through the power zone fully loaded up) I would see a momentary wingtip buckle right where one of the bridle lines attaches to the LE tips. It was instantenous, it wouldn't affect flight, and it would only happen once, but I didn't like it. They said it was fixed in 2012...TonyL wrote:Thanks for the reply. Have you had them in the upper ranges of wind? I weigh 195 and some of the posts talk about the heavier riders having issues in the upper wind ranges.
