thanks for all your feedback. Much appreciated. My feeling is that I am probably being drawn towards the more high aspect models, so am discounting the bandit, and though I started this thread talking about the renegade, some of you have been mentioning the qualities of the screamer. My friend has a 10m ltd which i flew briefly the other day, and loved, but i have my concerns with it falling out of the sky if you over fly it on jumps or catch it up coming down wind. There s no doubt it s a great kite, but is it a little too twitchy? I don t know. I was down at the beach yesterday and there were a ton of Edge kites out, and i have to say that they looked great.
My next question then, if any of you can still be bothered to be reading this, is what would provide more versatility between the screamer and the edge? Both are great up wind, boost fantastically, and super fast. Does either kite though have one extra standout quality that the other lacks? And how really do the modern 4 line edges compare to the classic 5 line kites of old?
Thanks in advance
Anyway, anybody could confirm if the 13 renegade might do the trick in 12-13 knots for 80 kilo rider on 6ft surfboard?? My 12mt obsession works great from a SOLID 13-14 on up...but theres lots of days when Im JUST a bit underpowered to make the sections I want to hit on the waves.
