I looked at buying a 10 ltd when they first came out - demoed it a few times. It was no where near as good as the 10HP at the time - not even close. Put me off to be honest. I am keen to try the newer kites in particular screamers and the infinity as I am in the market but we have representation here anywhere in Queensland to even look at them.

Hello Mr.Kurt,
Thank you for your interest in the EPIC kites. By the way Queensland is an amazing place.
We do have few selective dealers in Australia, but as you probably know Australia is huge.
You can check on our www.epickites.com "DEALER" page to find which one is the nearest you. Or you can always email me directly at: dimitri@epickites.com so I can further assist you.
But once again we have sold lots of EPIC product directly from our "Online Store" to Queensland, Perth, Darwin, Melbourne, Sydney and few other places . All I need to know is your riding style and what conditions you kite in. Plus how much you weight and what other equipment you use such as kites, board and so on. Than it will be very easy for me to choose the kite that is perfect for what you are looking for.
Once again, thank you very much for your interest in the EPIC kites.

The 3G Screamer 10 LTD is a very different kite from the 2010 and 2011 versions, which were very similar to each other.
The 3G S10 shape is different, it flies different, turns different, more forgiving than regular Screamers instead of being less forgiving. In the 2010/2011 model years, I would rather have the regular Screamer models, ...in the 3G versions, the Screamer 10 is the size that I definitely prefer.

It is very hard to please every body and this is the reason why we came up with different models, . So we can try to please every body's riding style.
But again we never stop on trying to improve what we have now, it is a never ending story.
On another note, this video is about big guys testing the INFINITY v2 light wind kite. Let's hear what they have to say.

Yes that is true and this is what happens when you fly the SCREAMER models.
In this picture the F.A.A. gave me a hard time because of getting into their air space.
