What Size? Replacing Cult with Rebel....

Postby 1968 » Sun Aug 25, 2013 3:41 pm

Hey!

Im thinking about replacing my 10m 2009 Naish Cult with a 2012 North Rebel. Im wondering weather to go for 9m or 10m? I like the good high end of the Cult and I wouldnt mind a bit more high end as the 10m is my biggest Kite. My next smallest KIte is a 7m Cult.
About me: 75kg with 132 TT.
Does anybody know the two Kites and can give helpfull advice?


Thanks,
K.

Rebels are super powerful. Easily similar performance to 2m bigger kites in general.

The North wind chart is pretty accurate. If you see that the wind range gaps between larger sizes are very small, it's because it's true. I have a 12M rebel 2009 (a powerful kite) and 8M Rebel 2012 and there's a lot of overlap between them.

Have not flown the Naish...

I am quite your "size"
Take the 10, you will use it from 13 knots, and the range of the rebel is really HUGE
I used the 10 no problem with 25 knots
With the Evo I would have collapsed :-)
