That review has a few unexpected points.

It says the Duotone Rebel loops harder (one of the reasons I like my rebel is the soft loop).
Also it mentioned backstall - but only for the Orbit. I know my Rebel (both 11 and 9) backstalls like a champion on the low end so either the Orbit is dramatically worse or ????

I don’t like the stuff of wetestkites because of that. Not only for the Orbit...
I have different stuff in my quiver at the moment. All is impressive.
Carve, Orbit, XR6, pivot, Boxer

50% of the kites in the RedBull KOTA Semi-finals were the Orbit... it can't be that bad :lol:
