Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

I generally do not need to move them around. Meaning, for normal boosting (10M/4-5seconds) I can simply aggressively move kite to 1-2pm for lift off, keep it there on the way up and slowly move it back to 10-11 on the way down for a butter landing. (You can downloop here if needed as well). North ki...

Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

I’ve been using 2017 Evos and like them very much and recently got an 8m 2018 Rebel. I am still not sure how I feel about it, great hang time but feels less smooth overall in terms of power delivery. But what I am most concerned about is that if I don’t sheet out while coming down by quite a bit th...

Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

Any difference in the tip settings for the Rebel? Also in what conditions did you fly the kites so far, over/underpowered and how do they behave a across their wind range. I find my smaller EVOs (9M) really come alive towards the upper end while keeping relatively low bar pressure. My 12M gets a bit...

Re: North Rebel 2018

eppo when you do demo, please compare it to the 16/17 EVOs. I'm in the same boat as your buddies, love my 16/17 EVOs but am very intrigued by the new Rebel.

Re: New 2018 North Rebel 4/5 line has me rethinking Evo

Dan I know you guys also demoed prototypes of the EVO at that meeting (3 strut). For someone on EVOs today looking for more performance would you recommend to wait for the release later this year or is the EVO going more towards beginner crowd?

Re: New 2018 North Rebel 4/5 line has me rethinking Evo

@beng thanks for the review that really helps. Any reason you fly your North kites on a low V rather than factory Y? Also since you come from EVOs, can you compare the looping ability of the new REBEL. Not looking for a mega loop machine, but I want something that can at least make it around smooth ...

Re: St. Lucia or Antigua in early-mid December?

I stayed at coconut bay last December with wife and 2 kids (under 4). Resort was great for the kids, they have a really nice kids pool and a huge slide that my son spent half the vacation on. Also all inclusive is really nice with kids as you can order lots of different things without having to worr...

Re: New 2018 North Rebel 4/5 line has me rethinking Evo

I fly EVOs and they are very fast and playful. Any Rebel I have tried in the past seemed slow and less fun to throw around (higher aspect), especially in larger sizes. I always considered them to be for heavier riders. Dan, I find it odd that you say the new Rebel turns faster than the EVO. Do you f...

Re: Stem Cell therapy works

Would love to hear some ballpark on cost for this procedure? Are we talking about <5k or more in the 15-20k range?
