Reliable - No bridles or pullies to go wrong, built tough, if 5th line breaks who cares - still flys just as well. Does not fly1/2 inside out, fly inside out, go into death spins (Well I have never seen that happen).

Depowers well/good range
( 11m (07) 15 to 32 knots)

Generates massive power from turning the kite.

Kiteloops send you sizeways


:-)

anyone have an 07 7m fuel they want to sell? preferably from Australia

I typically buy a new North ever two years. I still have and use: '04, '06 and '08. My '04 Vegas 16 is a tugboat ..will pull like the Hulk ...my '06 Rhino 16 and 12 are super fast and 5-line ...my '08 Rhino 14 is incredible and thankfully, they let me use it 5-line. I got rid of all the pure Bow/SLE kites. They seem fine for many people.

Yeah, just sold my two fuels for cheap, $500. Both 07s, and am regretting it. My shoulders and arms are not regretting it though! haha... oh well, can't go back now. They're not going to sell the fuel in the USA anymore. Or maybe that was team rider kites, not sure.
