Since I got my EPIC 10 LTD I am a believer in this brand.Séb
I am looking for a new lighter wind kite and likely to choose between the EPIC Screamer 14 and Renegade 13.
Has anyone ridden both of these?
Based on descriptions I am torn. The turning, gust handling and smoothness of the Renegade 13 sounds good, but the amazing boost, hang-time and upwind ability of the Screamer 14 is compelling too. Plus the 14 may start a bit earlier for me. I want this kite mostly for 13 - 20 or so. (me 190 lbs on Shinn Monk 134 x 42)
Thanks in advance for any input.
is correct. Since you got the SCREAMER 10 (LTD)
and from my understanding you like the kite, then definitely stay with the same model and get the SCREAMER 14
instead of the RENEGADE 13 LTD
. Don't take me wrong, the RENEGADE 13 ltd
is an amazing kite but it was designed for a different style of riding. If your riding style is going big then definitely go with the SCREAMER 14 (2010 / 2011 or 3G)
. The SCREAMER 14 (2011 & 3G)
did not change much except the graphics and few minor things. But they are an improvement from the SCREAMER 14 (2010)
.P.S. So Mr.ed257, from what I see in your thread it looks like you do believe the performance of the EPIC kites.
