I was thinking a 12m screamer. I have a 9m renegade and an infinity. I weigh 165lbs. Do you guys think thats the right size to fill my quiver? Also, has anyone replaced the 3 ring on the front lines of the Xtend bar with a swivel attachment? I was looking at replacing it with naish's or SS's swivel. I say this because when I loop my kite or do rolls my front lines always twist and I can never untwist them from the chicken loop. Dumb idea or brilliant?
I have been flying a 12m 3G Screamer for the last year. Great kite for jumping, poor for unhooked. Sure it has pop, any kite will give you pop if you load up correctly. I noticed an immediate difference when I tried a proper wakestyle kite. I am switching to SS RPM for this reason. The other downer for the Epic, is the bar and chicken loop. Besides the bar being low quality the loop is way to small for hooking back into. The actual chicken loop tube material is a smaller diameter then other brands and the small loop quickly get a kink in it leading to an oval shaped CL that is stupid for hooking back in. Since I'm ranting I'll also mention the Epic swivel does not work. It is much easier to follow every back roll with a front roll. Besides the bar quality the kites are built awesome, super durable. Obviously the hang time of the screamer is amazing also but my riding style is moving on.

I hope Dimitry will get the bars up to spec and make a more competitive open c kite instead of defaulting every one to the Judge.
