I have been on Hifi's and Vegas kites and both are great wakestyle kites. I currently ride C4 kites and lately I have been on a Epic Judge kite and think that it is a great cross over between a C and hybrid. Does have a small bridle but can be removed to ride as a full 4 line C (the choice is up to the rider).

I have been partial to RPM's in the past for wakestyle but I have switched to Airush Razor's lately. Not as much depower at the bar but put a strong edge on to push it forward and they have the same range. The Razor has way better slack and pop. Think shotgun under your feet pop then just slack the rest of the way. Insane. When you eat crap the kite doesn't yank you either. I cant count how many leashes I have broke on the rpm overpowered. The Razor has made pass and kicker tricks so much easier.
