North or Cabrinha

Postby gargan » Tue Jun 23, 2009 10:56 pm

looking to get a new kite, a 6 or 7m for those nuking days .I currently have a Switchblade 3 12m and an 2008 Evo 9m, which i love. I was just going to get a rebel or evo so i wouldnt have to fork out for another bar but lately ive been having do many great sessions on the switchblade im just not sure anymore. kites mostly going to be used freestyle/freeride and very rare wave days with an old surfboard.

any advice, reviews or comments would be appreciated as i cant seem to find any good reviews on the smaller kites

I'm a Rebel guy but my friends also love the Cab. kites.
Having a consistent quiver for equipment repairs etc. seems like a practical idea to me.

Demo both, and make up your own mind.
Here you will only receive biased info.
I hate five lines, so my choice is clear.

Evo runs four lines... I have no experience on Cab. My 7M Evo 09 is my favorite kite ever!
