Comment

After my years? experience with all other brands eventually in 2012 I bought my first Rebel and now from 2014, constantly checking out what drags all North fans out to it as well as about that the certain percent of us constantly speak about it in variance ways. So, now I have built my own opinion about it. The major problem with this brand model is that if you try once you won?t regret you will hooked up and you will never ever buy anything else. If speak about cons of course there are some as this does not reach the stars / top of the top yet.
First thing from where I would start to make some changes is bar itself. Although I love this bar most because of they simplicity I have to say that North should improve the handgrip as its falls apart easily (Eva grip).
Second of all is the kite itself, in principle there is not really something to improve maybe quicker turns in regards to the bigger sizes.
And as stated already while ago, pack shape in a way to be easy to rolling up/ wrapping around: I guess everyone would agree with me if I would say that this is not the easiest part in order to keep it nice and clean store in the bag (bag seems to be sometimes too small). And again , bags; while closing watch out to do not cut your kite by the zipper ? point to improve since the kite won?t fit easily to the bag especially when the wind blows. One pump valve system ? noticed that during pumping up my kite air is fleeting out somehow (something does not keep the pressure).
