Hey 14, have you done a side by side with 2011 18m Dyno and the 2012 LTD and Core 19m yet?

Toby, can you give us a little more on the Fuse?

cheers,

Robbie :D

This weekend looks good for a S by S with the LTD and the D 18. Hope to Post review.

I flew the Core 3 weeks ago 2 days in a Row and was very impressed with the Quick turning the Smooth power and the forgiveness when the Wind was up and down.

I was able to make a couple of Foot switches with the Core which seemed easy because of the Even power when I moved the Kite across the Window.

I'll keep u posted.

I haven't tried the LTD yet.

Nothing more to say about the Fuse...need more wind for it.

I would have thought you would have well and truely worn your kites out within a year.

PS I also think kites aren't getting better and better these days. Just getting tweaked for more specialist riding. my 2011 c4 way better than the 2013 c4 for my riding!.. sigh!



Same model, always new kites.

I bought several in blow outs...this is my 5th now...brand new.
And one more brand new at home.

The low end of the Fuse is not like the Dyno 2011. Need to test in higher winds now.

I assume the Fuse therefore has a higher top end. Maybe it will replace my 16...

But I am trying to convince North to do the Dyno 18 again. It is just such a good kite.
And if they don't do it, I will ask them to make a special Airstyle Kite and I will sell them!
Plus the North bar with Microloop!
I am sure I can sell several !!!


Hi
I wonder, when do you take a new kite? When wear and tear starts showing or do you notice the flying characteristics to change.

Sorry, need a bit more wind to tell you more.

But low end def. Better from Dyno.
E.g. In 13 knots I can do a Jesus Walk with the Dyno 18 but not with the Fuse...I sink and don't stay above the water.

Have you used the regular 2012 17? Thoughts on it?

Yes, the 17 is ok for Airstyle. More for racing though.

so far nothing beats the Dyno 2011 18. hands down the best kite for me.
trying to convince North to redo it. Airstyle needs that kite...
