Just got back from OBX.... again and was able to test Epic's new prototypes.
I just wanted to share my opinion for those who are interested in how these kites handle and perform. Now, it is totally my personal opinion and I would strongly recommend trying it yourself, but I would hope it would help you in some ways
Infinity V3 Prototype - It is very similar to V2 Infinity, but it has definitely more low end power. Did a side to side comparison but could not tell much of a difference from V2.... Still don't understand why it has more power..?? but I was overpowered when wind was blowing 12knots.. ( I weigh 150lbs). Turns very quick. Able to kiteloop now problem at all!
Renegade 13m V4 Prototype - This is a superb kite!!!! It almost has as much power as the V2 Infinity, but very very fast. Very stable and moderate bar pressure makes it a very easy kite to fly. Combining with Oxygen board, I was just going upwind without a hitch in 12knots of wind.
Screamer 10LTD V4 Prototype - What can I say... It is a jumper. To be honest this is one of the BEST kite to do a megaloop. Not many kites makes me comfortable to do a megaloop but it just loops so quickly and catches you well. Of course the height and the floatiness just makes the easiest kite to loop. Comparing to the earlier V1 and V2 Screamer LTD, it is just a refined and nice kite. Took the gust very very well. Older Screamers used to jerk you a bit but this kite did not jerk at all. Condition at Kitepoint was a N, NW wind so it was super gusty but I did not feel at all! Bar pressure has increased from older model so that is also a nice feature of this new V4
