If you can already loop without thinking and just want to do old-school airstyle tricks, this is your kite. ......or if you're really fat.
Great explaining, this is where i was hoping for, thank you!

Well I personally never tried the EVO but I really would love to!
My rebel feels like an allround kite to me but without testen the EVO I can not compare...

In big sizes, I would go for Rebel.

For an EVO, I would pick 2019 over 2018. 2018 was heavy in big sizes.

Dont you think the 5 strut rebel is better in smaller sizes and so stronger for harder wind?
I would like to buy a 6m but am in doubt between the Evo and Rebel, I currently have an 8 & 11m Rebel ..

For a 6m, I would definitely choose either an Evo or a Neo. Rebel would be very fast in the size. That’s why my 12 is rebel and my 7/9 are a Evo. In strong wind I would prefer to ride in a lower aspect than a higher one. I see stability in this
