Have you spent any time on the 2013 Evo?
Thoughts as a stable, gust busting, freeride kite for complimenting a quiver with light wind and wave kites in place?
The fuse would be the safest option as the edge does have a characteristically different feel.

There is one heading to Baja right now for some demo events, but that's about it. I've been told that the 2013 has some significant changes from 2012.
As to the 2012, it is definitely the best jumping kite I've ever flown, but I cannot compare it to the Edge... I have only spent a short time on the Edge and any kite requires time to adjust to.
Any chance you can make it to a demo event or hook up with a local shop somewhere before you purchase? If you're considering the 2013 Fuse you've got a couple months before it's released anyway. Asking for brand X vs brand Y advice here is silly as many people have ulterior motives to promote or detract from one brand or another.
Wish I could help more.
