The Fuse will probably jump higher and have better hangtime with more depower........

The Evo will turn faster, loop tighter and relaunch better..........

I have ridden both and agree with Don's comments.

If you have waves and/or gusts and challenges and relaunch a lot you might prefer the Evo.

If you have flat water, or light wind or want to jump high try the Fuse.

Both are nice kites.

Both very nice kites and so different if compared. They are meant for different use.
The choice is up to your style and likes.

IMO You should go and try them.

go Evo.
Best relaunch, easier bar pressure, faster, HUGE range, Huge jumps, kick ass in waves,..
just an all around better choice. I got 7 and 9 and could not be more stoked.
Fuse is a great kite, but imo, Evo can do more.

I got 2012's and not used the 2013's of either model

These two kite are both great, but totally different! I fly the fuses in the larger sizes, and like the evo from 11m down. It is all about who you are and what you want the kite to do. The other post are great, one does loop tighter and faster, one floats higher , they both stall and fly differently. Perhaps if you shared what you like and what sizes you will be flying, you would get some deeper info.

Trying them both is for sure the way to go!
