I use 9m rebel from 2010 and I like this kite for direct power control, short depower and big boost on jumps. What I do not like : 1. depower line when in overpowered conditions is long and it can wrap around the bar or front lines or back lines causing loss of control on the bar and bad accidents ( this needs to be recalled ) 2. 5th line once it gets wrapped around the kite after a crash is twisted and I have to land kite
run the lines again and then go back on the water ( this way I spend more time playing with lines on the shore than kiting. ) these are mine comments. I don't know if my cons were improved in last 4 years since I got mine rebel in 2010 ??
