Today was the first day we introduced the JUDGE 8 & 11 "C" kite to the Greek riders.
We had to go to Drepanos which is near Patras 100 km from Athens due to the thermos because of the lack of wind in Athens. The result was incredible. People just loved it. They also loved the new "3G" SCREAMER 12/10/9 and RENEGADE 11. These were the only kites we pumped because of the space we had on the beach. And "NO" kiting is not banded in Greece.

Hi Dimitri,

Awesome graphics on the Judge. The kite bag as well. My personal favorite kite is the Screamer-10Ltd. Nice hard aggresive kite.

How does the Judge 11m compare with the Screamer 10Ltd and also the Screamer 10-3G. I am sure anyone considering the Screamer 10 will also consider the Judge 11m.

Also are the bars still interchangeable between the Judge and other Epic kites?

Hello "clubkite",
The SCREAMER 10 LTD (2011) is a totally different kite then the new SCREAMER 10 LTD (3G) and the JUDGES 8 or 11.
The SCREAMER 10 LTD (2011) is more powerful then the JUDGE 11 and it has way more hang time.
Now the SCREAMER 10 LTD (3G) is faster then the SCREAMER 10 (2011) but has less power. Still very different kite then the JUDGE but the (3G) Screamer 10 is closer to a "C" kite then the Screamer 10 (2011).
What I like about the new (3G) Screamer 10 ltd is that it has a closer feeling of a "C" kite but the hang time and the pop is as good as the Screamer 10 (2011). Wait until you see the shape of the SCREAMER 10 LTD (3G) and you will see what I am talking about.
And yes all the bars are the same with the JUDGE/SCREAMER/INFINITY/RENEGADE. One bar for all these kites. How good is that!!!!
I hope this answers your questions.

Hello guys.
Today was the 3rd day doing demos near Patra in Greece because of the thermos we had to drive 2 hrs away from Athens but it was worth it. We had tons of people demoing the kites. Out of 17 people that tried the kites, 4 of them wanted to buy them on the spot and the other 13 already purchased some other kites or did not have any money but they were very very impressed with the RENEGADE 9, SCREAMER 7/9/10 and the JUDGE 8 (yes it was blowing 20 - 27 knots). You will what they have to say on the testimonials video. Call it "Pimping" if you want but the truth talk for itself. Just give it a shot if you get a chance and you will see why people are so impressed.
Any way these are some of the pictures of today from few riders testing them.

P.S. Sorry but can't show you too much about the "3G" SCREAMERS & RENEGADES yet

BEST FEELING EVER.... (these pictures says it all)
You don't know how happy these guys were after flying a kite for an hour. So if you are in the same situation just give it a chance and try to fly a kite. It will open some new doors that you never thought was possible.
