Fuse 2013

I am really interested in a comparison between fuse 16, fuse 18 and Dynos 17 and 18, in terms of light wind performance: lowend, turning speed, hang time and lift.

Anyone?

I have a Fuse 18 waiting for me in cold Hamburg...in about 3 weeks I will be able to comment on it when I tested it for the first time.
Then I can compare it to Dyno 18 and 17, since I flew both.

From reliable source at North I was told that 17 LTD Dyno is better Upwind, more Depower def better Lowend and if you ride surfboard you will most likely prefer Dyno LTD. 18 Fuse will Boost higher.

What i really like from North is "No-BS" low end of the 2013 18m2 Fuse...realistic 9 knots :thumb:

Not 8...not 7...not 6..not 5...not 4...and especially not 3kn cruising on an SUP (4kn will lulls to 2kn)
