Currently ride 9m smoke and 13m edge, both of which do me just fine. The smoke is a great all rounder, and will stay my go to kite for the waves and down winders, but I want this new kite to give e a bit more pep, be a little faster, and provide better lift. Am more of an old schooler in terms of riding style, but want a degree of versatility for those times when can only travel with one kite.
Since you have the Smoke 9m
and the 13 Edge
I would not recommend the RENEGADE
kites just because they are in the same category of kites then the ones you have. You see me personally the RENEGADES
are my wave kites but most people love them for their all around kiting.
If you are looking for a higher aspect kite check the SCREAMERS
instead. Now this is the kite if you are looking for big jumps, big hang time, big pop, in few words if you want to go big that's the kite. I have not tried the new BANDIT 5 so I can't comment on that kite. But I have tried the RRD and the OCEAN RODEO kites and you can't go wrong either.
But check this video. All the flat water riding is on the Screamers
and the wave riding is on the Renegade
