Know how to put a smile on a mans face!! Was going to order an epic renegade 13 have to hold off now! Your talking about the fly obviously not the 12m ride?!
Might have to come for a visit when holidaying in August
Yes this is definitely not the ride 12. The Fly is bigger. The reason I say it is made for freestyle / free ride is the way it handles..it is as far away from the charger as it can be. I was out in glassy water, self launch easy. First I ride the surfboard strapless with it making a few runs down the line ,but light wind on shore not always the best wave riding conditions if you have a kite with you..but still fun. Mostly because there was power in the kite. It never fell from the sky which is a really good sign one of the spots where I ride where light wind usually means a lot of time in the water...
...then i figured well hell it feels like it has power so why not try the TT...so I did. My usual forward backward rolls with loops transitions worked like a charm. It had quite a bit of upwards pull and it provided plenty of time in the air. I don't really have enough time to say much about the wind range...I was alone out there.
Now I've ridden both the 10 and 12 Ride too, but I really did not have enough time on the 12 to say anything intelligent about it. I did not set the Ride and Fly side by side so I guess so far what i can say about similarities is that the Fly pulls harder, and that both have 2 struts.
The 10 I had more time on. Pulls pretty hard. The jumps took me by surprise, got some real lift. Sure got some power to it. I really want to try the 8 too. The 10 I can see being a good kite for down the line riding. I'm pretty psyched to get more time on it tho.
