I'm currently running a 9m Vegas. Just sold my 11.5m griffin and love using my mates 11m 2014 rebel.

I'm 89kg, love boosting and doing average backrolls. Ride a TT 70% and surfboard 30%. Beginner to intermediate.

Looking at a 2012 11m or 12m north rebel. The obvious choice is the 12m for better kite quiver range but have heard reports that the 11m does as big a range AND flys much better.

Also that the 2012 is a better model than 2013?

Can anyone confirm?

I'm set on a rebel just not sure what year/size.

2011 rebel was the best year I recon. 2012 was also amazing. The bottom and top end of the 11m is fantastic. I don't know what happened with the 2013 rebel but it was a dog, everything about it was ****, even the bar. Stay away from 2013
