there are three magazine reviews on the Rebel homepage. I have never heard anything but praise for the Rebel, one exception, some folks do not like 5 lines, others swear by them.

Looking forward to getting my Rebel in the next few days.

Isn't the 5th line really just a super huge mega Bridal disguised as control lines?

Thats what I always thought, yet at a different angle. This angle is probably the reason why the kite is, at least in my eyes, so superior to brideld kites.

If you want a video review, try the gleiten.tv one (only translated):

Having the 5th line allows for no bridal , no pullies, in the end it is actually less complicated. I am hoping to sneak out tomorrow afternoon for my first sesh.. warm and windy in the northeast tomorrow.
