Can you tell us what changes, if any, were made to the different models and sizes?
Hello "Dj A-Ron"
We finally got some internet access on the island so I will try to respond to your question the best and easiest way I can. There is never ending development, testing, riding, adjusting, testing, adjusting.... you get the idea.
Our 2011 kites were so successful that it would be hard without the riders input to improve on the performance, quality and graphics, but with everyone's help this is what we did.
For example, we begin with the Screamer 7 since the smaller sizes are always easier to work with and took the SCREAMER 10 ltd
"2011" (the LTD is always our pilot of new generation of kites
) and incorporated some of it's ideas into the SCREAMER 7 , and it blew our minds, so we did the same on the SCREAMER 9 and SCREAMER 12. This made the new generation Screamer 9 & 12 faster with a little more power then the 2011 and with more hang time. The Screamer 7 gained more stability and became sturdier with more pop (so far the Screamer 7 is my favorite kite). Also we tried to do the same thing with the SCREAMER 14 but it did not work. So we continued to work on the SCREAMER 14 and while we kept the same profile, we were able to make it faster turning with less bar pressure.
For the RENEGADE "3G"
models we started with the RENEGADE 11 (2011) since it is our best seller and incorporated that feeling into the RENEGADE 9 and it made the Renegade 9 "3G" much faster then the 2011 with less bar pressure and better pop, but a little less grunt then the 2011. The feeling is incredible, so we took the same idea and made the RENEGADE 5 & 7. The RENEGADE 11 stayed the same as the 2011, with a few minor tweaks.
We are also still working on the INFINITY v2. This kite was also our best seller next to the R 11 so we want to make the new INFINITY more powerful with out loosing its turning speed. So we are still working on it.
For the new SCREAMER 10 LTD "3G"
. This is a totally new concept then all the other SCREAMERS. We took away a wee bit of the power that the SCREAMER 10 (2011) had and made it much faster with an incredible hang time (the videos you will see of the hand time are not in slow motion). The kite loops are crazy....Every rider that has demo this kite loved it immediately.
So in a few words if you liked the 2011 kites I think you'll love the "3G" kites. But don't take my word for it. Just try them and see for yourself.
P.S. The SCREAMER 10 LTD is going to blow your mind. Because all you need is one kite as your quiver. Very good for hang time, very good for wave riding, very good for power moves.
