So maybe the fifth even if not tensioned may help? Whi knows no nice person seems to want to share their detailed riding experience. Have they become just too expensive? Are crew on the other brands now? Puertz has also asked on our local forum and nothing!!
... yeah your right on the stability, I hate deforming kites and bridle ones seem to do that to me. Your right by the way, I'm heading towards more wave riding and loading up the kite isn't such a big thing for me as it used to be. I used to only want to go high and long but damaged knees and ankles are changing me.
Still, its wierd why there is a lack of details on the net re North light wind stuff, its just not as prolific as other brands??? It still makes me wonder why????
Yeh me too Robbie the silence is deafening. Wave riding, okay hence your focus on the fuse. Let's face it the Dyno won't work that well in the waves. So maybe you need a lower aspect kite then even more so than the Fuse; if you are not loading then why not fat lady? Or even the core. Both those kites would be better in the waves per say anyway than the fuse which is still has some aspect about it? (yeh I don't buy into the rebel/fuse in the waves thing, ridden to many kites that have shown me the true meaning of a good kite in the waves).
What about the NRG light breeze. I will tell ya man I have only ridden the 10m, but that has some aspect like the rebel/fuse (which I love, give me aspect anyday), but man did it drift! No shit, I can't put in words how bloody suprised I was and another mate of mine (11 years kiting). We both came in with puzzled looks on our face. It was boosting (Big, high aspect like) but drifting...really drifting I mean, not some pseudo higher aspect drifting where we high aspect riders try to kid ourselves...this thing was just slipping back into the slot no matter what we did!! I'm still puzzled about that baby.
And it has a real robust feel about it..not unlike the rebel/fuse canopys actually, now that I think about it.
If I wasn't so addicted to the ozone refined feel especially throught the edge, this would be the kite I would build my quiver with.
This might be an option worth exploring as I know you need some aspect up there in the shit wind capital of the Australia.
