there's no better board than a jaime love that board. North bladders are known to delaminate in lower temperatures than other kites. Good kites, great control bar, the rebel is especially solid all around kite. I go through two pumps a year, I have resewn my harness several times, go find myself some new buckles and webbing, and a sewing awl not a problem. The actual canopy fabric on your co2, wainman and north is all exactly the same, Teijin Technoforce T9600, the only difference is how many reinforcement points they put on the kite.supachip1 wrote:

I have six North Rebels I bought over the last three years, only replaced one valve on the 2008 16m.supachip1 wrote:believe me i have replaced or re-glued all the valves on my 2010 evos on what seems to be an 'every time i kite' basis, and fixed many a hole with tearaid.( i feel i should have shares). for me its something i just got used to, i can do it blind folded now.
some say FORD= Fix On A Daily basis..my experience with NORTH =Never Out Riding The Hour!
but its not just north, my wainman is the same (all valves de-lamed and bridle broke, stitching gave in due to having to pump LE so solid to stop wing tips folding, cost of 150$ repair), they are all kept in the same conditions, even though the 2010's are 6 yrs younger why is the CO2 that is 'un-used' still the only 1 that stays soild over night..?
EDT..you say they are left in the heat..ok, not in direct sunlight, but in shaded tropical temperatures, the CO2 is still going strong from 03/04,
i have only just started to trying to the use CO2 due to horrible reminders of whole body red raw sand rash and hitting water like a stone from 20' as a beginner before IKO had some sort of standard (dont want to get into that IKO arguement now) but all my gears failed, harness straps, footstraps, safety lines, tissue paper like canopy, pumps..infact the only thing that has never let me down is my jamie pro board and the bar next to my launch site which serves 'chang beer'.. even though the burmese staff have no ides what i'm complaining about!!
