Hi guys
I currently kite on evo and neo, and was thinking about tryin a Rebel, altought it is not easy to find a demo where I live
Can you tell me if turnin speed of the rebel is faster or slower than evo?
I suppose hang time better due to aspect ratio
thanks a lot

I've been riding Rebels and picked up an Evo 5m this season. It probably depends on the size but my impression is that the Evo moves around a lot more and is not as stable as the Rebel. The Evo has more of a C kite feel and may be slightly faster so I can understand why some people like it. However, I think the speed of the Rebels is just right and I prefer the stability of Rebels in gusty conditions. If you're a freestyler who is used to C kites then you may prefer the Evo, however, if you're more of a hooked-in freerider then you would likely prefer the Rebel. Just my opinion, ymmv.

Quali misure?quali venti? onde ? piatto?io uso rebel ,if you need turning speed maybe any other kite is better.ieri ho confrontato religion 6 con la mia rebel 6 e in rotazione non c'è paragone ,stessa cosa con le ozone.
botte piena e moglie ubriaca non esiste ,non hanno ancora inventato un kite con i cavalli potenza windrange precisione del rebel con la rotazione tipo vegas o neo mi piacerebbe anche a me!mio fratello ha un neo 10 2012 ,per me è lento e duro ,imodelli 2013 dicono sono migliori .
nel 2011 ho comprato un neo 2011 10 m ma lo ho rivenduto dopo averlo confrontato con rebel 8 2012 (qui in sardegna) ,una ferrari contro un trattore!
La 8 l'ho rivenduta perche' è una misura inutila per il mio peso (77) e un po lenta. sto usando 5 (2012) 6 e 7(2013).
secondo me è importante il rischio di caduta,ovvero se vai a capo mannu o maybe sud africa dove è meglio non cadere con neo surfi un paio di ore tranquillo,invece con rebel che è molto piu veloce in andatura e sta piu in finestra ,come sbagli sei frullato ,scarocciato o a scogli.
la 5 non mi piace mi sembra un po scarica (sotto 25 kn vado a fondo) 6 e 7 sono mostruose ,inarrivabili,belle, potenti, stabili, veloci, precise ,morbide, windrange unbelieveble ,ruotano sufficentemente perchè sono piccole
ieri ho provato una 9 2013 ma è sempre la stessa pappa ! lente in rotazione! un po pesantone e sicuramente troppo care!
in conclusione ,quanto pesi ?dove vai? che fai salti? surfi? corri? cadi?lago?mare ?oceano?ma se proprio need turning speed le rebel sono le ultime.ciao

sorry I am lazy writing in english(harder at least)
I think factory did not make yet a kite combining speed ,power, windrange,precision, with turning speed and 4 line easy using.
maybe is not possible ,like airplanes does not exist mach 2 flying and immediate turning,should be an UFO so is a compromise .
is there a mix between rebel and religion ?will get at once!
tried neo 10 2012 ,found slow and hard like 2011 model that I sold after few session.
cannot say 2013 model,I am going to try next days at local school.
choosing depends also from our spot and level .
I am using rebel 5 6 7 here in sardinia but
on next trip to south africa (can't wait for!) I will consider my medium level surfing bigger waves between 30 and 40 kn with rebel's speed (going in the washing machine was a guarantee)so even if I do not like I will buy something easier ,slower ,less risk of falling like could be a neo or similar.
I suggest the friend from milan not to get rebels if he likes and needs turning speed mostly
Hi!

ciao Piccio!
i wish I could be in sardinia that often!
I will give a try to the rebels, it is such a different kite compared to all the others I tried
I also loved the bar pressure and speed of the religion, but they don't jump enough for the use I make
bandits are also nice, but in the big sizes which I use a lot difficult to relaunch
have fun in south africa!
