I'm not the one who you need to keep happy as i'm already happily using another brand's bar. But i'm glad to see that with enough input you do actually start listening to what your customers have to say.
At this rate, by G6 or G7, we might actually get a bar that is up to date with the current technologies and trends.
The next step would be to change the lines for non-stretch ones. Free 15m sets with Renegades sound awesome in a selling speech, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd prefer to have a line set that the rider can count on to be true and all equal on a daily basis.
B.t.w. the 10Ltd worked a lot better with the 4" difference in lines - fronts being longer. Somebody must have forgotten to mention to customers to tune the rear attachment points if they'll be using Epic kites with bars where all lines are actually equal - for the best performance that is.
And you were right, 10Ltd works pretty well in waves, but it's not as responsive as the Renegade with some slack in rears.
With all due respect Mr.alexeyga
but why do you think EPIC KITES has such a great product!!!!
That is because we listen to our customers and take their inputs very seriously. But again you can't make every body happy and that is the reason why you have so many kite companies out there to choose from. Again from all the bars we've sold, we probably had less then 3% of these DEPOWER STRAPS going bad, but its always good to have an open mind and try new things in our product line. This is the reason why I posted this picture of the new metal buckle.
Now concerning the lines... All our kites are set up to fly perfectly out of the bag. Every shipment we get, I take at least 8 to 15 kites out for my demos and personal use and 98% of the time they are perfectly trimmed. You have to understand I cannot open and fly every kite we get in order to make sure the lines or knots are perfectly set up because then it won't be a new kite. We get thousands of kites and we cannot open each one of them and try to fly them.
Concerning G6 or G7 trend. We got something even better for the G4 product. No need for G6 or G7.
Any way, I'm always trying to do the best I can to help my fellow kiters with our product line. But this is not a perfect world and you cannot please every one.
