Last years 10 LTD from Epic was pulling like 11,5....everybody who tried the kite said that...Its the wings characteristics.Although Dimitri was admiting that the kite was more powerfull than a normal 10m.For this year its a clean 10m with better low and high end.

I have always found that kites which have better low end are bigger.
And the next year if they make them smaller, then everyone brags about the high end.
:duh:

OMG, are you fcuking serious dude, how the hell did this get round to Epic yet again? Can't you guys just take a fcuking break and stop hijacking every thread with your Epic pimp bulls**t. If it's like Dimitri's last effort at selling kites he'll just fcuk off leaving all his customers in the lurch with no service support and worthless kites!

Its just my opinion about my experience.not pimping or anything.If you fly with that kite you ll see that it NOT a bullshit (specialy in quality) and its more powerfull than a normal 10m..

oh and Epic was honest about the sizing .... not like SS. :peng:

Im in need of a little advice on this subject!

So I have a 8m 2012 Rally, a 10m 2012 RPM and a 13m 2009 Rev2, I am looking to replace the Rev2 and thought a 12m 2012 RPM would make sense but now it seems it doesnt!

Any advice? Ideally I want a 2012 kite as I am hoping to buy it used.

hi, Do not buy the 2012 12m RPM its is pretty much exactly the same size in SQM and power delivery as the 10m, save your money and either get the 2013 12m (larger this year) or a 2012 12m rally...

I owned the 8, 10 and 12m 2012 rpms and paid the costly price, I sold the 12m and got a 14m rally, good quiver.... good luck,

RPM is a fab kite though
