Hello guys, This is one of the many emails I get and wanted to share with you this email I got this morning from a customer. (The only thing I did not paste was his name in order to keep him anonymous)
Hi dimitri, I have received the kite a few days ago, it looks great, really quick shipping, and excellent service. I must say, evan though I had a million and one questions to ask you before the transaction, you always had an answer for me, and very quickly as well. Your service is top notch, keep up the great work, don't let the haters tell you otherwise! This is definitally not the last time i will buy from epic, i can assure you i wont be as hard of a customer next time.Can't wait to try the kite. Cheers,
P.S. We are almost done with the EPIC ATTACK #4 movie.
Just had a chance to do a quick spin on my buddy's Renegade 13m LTD after spending the day on my C4 12m. First thing to note - 13LTD has a ginormous top end. The conditions were fairly gusty 15-24, so most small-a$$ed riders were on 9-10m kites, but being on 200lbs-side of things, we've judged that it's better to be a bit over than a tad under and the owner never really felt like switching on the 9 during the session. Neither have I felt ovepowered when I grabbed it for a test. And that is after a few sessions on Cape Cod when my buddy on the 13LTD was among the last people to come out from the water when the wind died.
For the rest I felt pretty much the same as I did about the Renegade 9m - awesome do-it-all kite. Very light in the air, very forgiving and stable with the turning speed that is just right and the bar pressure being light. Back to back with my C4 though I felt that it lacked feedback on the bar and it takes a bit more rider's input to boost high, but it's easier to land those big jumps on the Renegade without being too surgical.
The only real con that I can note is that I took the 13LTD for test after applying some sunscreen - thus my hands were quite a bit greasy which never was an issue up to date with any bars that I had/have. Turned out that the older Epic (Blade) bar is one slippery mofo!!! Hopefully the foam on the new bars has a little more grip.
All in all, this is the kite I'd recommend with my eyes closed to a beginner, a wave rider or an average Joe looking for a solid all-around kite. Great job Dimitri!
Hello Mr.alexeyga and thank you for all the input on the RENEGADE 13 LTD. Just to make sure was this the R13 ltd or the R13 ltdv2? Because the v2 has been improved from the last version of the R13 ltd which gives it better pop and better up wind capability.

I'm pretty sure it's the V1, though neither me or the owner ever felt there are any issues with the upwind ability...
Once again Mr.alexeyga, thank you for your time. Don't take me wrong the RENEGADE 13 LTD v1 is an incredible kite like you said, but we knew we could make it better. So the v2 of the R13 ltd has been improved. If you get a chance try the v2 RENEGADE 13 and let us know what you think.
