Which jumps better - Rebel, Evo or Fuse??

Postby luke-warmwater » Sat Jan 09, 2010 11:51 am

I've been using the Evo for a while now and getting some good height and float in the jumps but some say the Rebel jumps better... is this true and how is it different (higher, floatier, harder landings?).

I need kites with a big wind range so the Vegas isnt really an option for me but staying with North will keep my costs down (no need to change bars). I'm a steady intermediate mainly doing old school stuff.

So which jumps better... the 2010 Rebel or 2009 Evo, and where will the Fuse figure in this equation?

Thanks

That mostly depends on the rider skills..
Bet in 99% of all cases the kite isnt the limiting factor, bet what is?

Thanks for the reply, yes I agree the skill level is the main factor, but assuming its the same rider on each kite in equal conditions.....which would jump better?

Or are you saying that these 3 kites require substantially different skill-sets to get the most out of them?
