I accidentally had a 2012 Edge 13m and a 2013 Rebel 14m at the same time at one point (bidding on 2 ebay auctions, didn't think I would win the Edge
I tried them out back to back a few times to see which one to keep. I wound up going with the Edge. I'd say they had about the same lowend, but the Edge was noticably faster on my raceboard. Also, the Edge hung in the sky through the lulls better.
I don't know if that is the best comparison though because everyone says that the 2013 Rebels had less low end than other year rebels.
I also bought a 19m Edge to replace my 2011 18m Dyno, but had them both at the same time to try back to back. The 19m Edge isn't as good for low end on a twin tip because you have to get some speed up. I've flown them back to back on the beach when wind was too light to even get going on the raceboard and both kites were stable in the sky without a problem. The range of the Edge was definitely wider. I get out of control on the Dyno in 14 or 15 knots (I'm 165 lbs), but the Edge is still fun at 16-17 knots.
