First... good job
second... nice look to these kites. Very excited to get them in the air and try them all out!
Third... can you explain the strut in the images? I've never seen one like that before. What is the benefit of this.?

I'll drop you a note for my pre-order!

Hello KiteCulture,
Are you talking about the cone shape at the end of the Struts?
This will be only for the SCREAMER 10 ltd. The reason we did this is because it gives the trailing edge a better shape and keeps everything perfect while you are generating power and keeps the ends stiff so they don't bend.
Now you will probably ask me why we did not do this on the other models!!!!
Well the answer is very simple. The SCREAMER 10 is our test pilot kite. In few words the SCREAMER 10 LTD is the idea for our 2012 kites. It is part of the SCREAMERS family but has a different profile, which makes this kite very special. The LIMITED EDITION is the kite we use to test for the next 2012 models.
If you loved the 2010 SCREAMER 10 LTD then get ready for this one.
I have a feeling you will see these soon on the next brands. :thumb:

Looks good Dimitri. :thumb: I think you said the Screamers might be a little faster for 2011 compared to 2010 which would be a plus in my book. Appears we might have some wind this afternoon so I will have to find you so I can try out the 2011's.

Kites are looking good:) Even though I like simple design I have to say that the Renegade gfx look really cool. I think I'm going to be adding Renegade to my Screamers this year:)

I have had the Epic Screamer10LE these last 4 weeks, and 2 of those weeks with us in Fiji.
Firstly it is an improvement on the 2010, mainly it does everything the 2010 does with less fuss and smoother.

the bulges( look like a 2 stroke expansion chamber) on trailing end of struts works to keep tension in the canopy which makes the kite quiet during turns etc. but does feel smoother.

In short a subtle distinct improvement. Those used to their 2010 10LE don't need to feel superseded, those that thought the 2010 was too much kite for them will see the improvements as making it more usable for them.
