Overly small leading edges suck no matter how many lines you use, squishy kites are not good.JamesVegas wrote:Doesn't the loaded 5th line keep the LE small? I've been on 5 line kites since day one, I would never go to a 4 line on safety alone.
The D2 material is from the same company that makes canopy material for everybody else. Really James, look into it, North has an exclusive on a name, just like Sears has an exclusive on the Michelin tires they sell. Discount Tire and Sam's Club also have an exclusive on their Michelin made tires.JamesVegas wrote:The Rebel is a sick kite and the D2 canopy is the best material available at the movement which keeps the kite super stiff.
So you are insinuating that the most expensive kite brands are better because of the prices they charge the consumer?JamesVegas wrote:As with all purchases try before you buy, if money is no object though go North.

Just one word gives you the answer - Sun (and we have 330 days sunny days per year here where I live). Black absorbs it far more than any bright color which reflects it.

Not sure why anyone would have a problem with a black kite, nice and simple.
why wouldn't you want a tiny LE? Given everything else the same, I would think there are only advantages of having a thin LE unless you for some reason want more drag?JamesVegas wrote:Agreed that you don't want or need a tiny leading edge but the Rebel doesn't fall into this category.
