I disagree with Dimitry a little. The Obsession is more delta and a lower aspect, but it has quite a deep profile so there is a certain amount of power there as soon as you touch the bar. It is like a nice aggressive wolf on the end of the lines. It wants to bark and tear around, but it knows who is in control (you).Longwave wrote:Can anybody compare the Screamer to the RRD Obsession? Both of them seems to be free ride big booster. And why do you prefer the Screamer over the Obsession (if you do)?

Dimitri that cool pic of you jumping big - Im happy enough to say, is pretty standard for these kites - once you learn to jump lol
The 4G 9m is a very different kite to the 10m LTD and have there own specific identities in flight, if you want to throw down big flat megaloops, the 9 is the machine... the 10 is more like a 'Stealth Bomber that will get you up in the danger zone,very quickly..
Personally I dont go for all the 'bottom end' banter in kites - I would rather use a bigger kite and ride hard overpowered..
Its the midrange and top end that these kites excel and start the adrenalin spikes.
If your not afraid of commitment and ride hard using the full potential of both kites you will understand - if not... well you may not see my point in relation to their potential performance.
Different strokes for different folks - its all good
Hello Longwave, as you can see from the info I have attached bellow, the difference in power and up wind ability is very very minimal. So it all depends of the conditions you are kiting in. But if you are looking for a kite that can do everything very good then the RENEGADE model is the kite you want. But if you are looking for a specific kite that was designed for the waves, then the SURF is the kite that you want to get your hands on.According to the Epic website the Surf 12m has less power than the Renegade 11m, and has a bit less upwind ability. Am I right? And how big is the difference?
