Hi Dimitri,
After using both 9m Renegades and Screamers... Is there any chance of making a kite that is somewhere in the middle of the two ? I love the smooth easy flying characteristics of the Renegade but also the punch of the Screamer... Maybe a Renegade with less rounded or squared wingtips ? The Renegade i think, is under rated as a jump kite as have got some huge air on it.
Just a thought anyway.

Hello Kite2Heaven, and thank you for your request about coming up with another kite that will be in the middle of the RENEGADE & SCREAMER. If you want that kite then I do have some prototype kites that will do that. For example I do have (4G) prototypes SCREAMER 14,9,12,7,10 that are more like the RENEGADE feeling but with some SCREAMER touch. These are great kites but personally they did not have the "hang time" that the SCREAMER have. Plus I don't want to add another model to what we have because the dealers will get upset with all the models. So far this is what we have in our EPIC line:
RENEGADE 5/7/9/11/13/Infinity
SCREAMER 7/9/10/12/14
JUDGE 6/8/11
RACER 12/14/17
JUNIOR PRO 4 kids kite
TUTOR 2.5 trainer kite.

As you can see we have already lots of models and each model target a specific type of riding style.
So if you are looking for something in the middle between the Renegade & the Screamer then I have these prototype kites for sale.

P.S. We are still working on our 4G kites as we speak.

Thanks Dimitri to be so reactive and clear

Can't wait to ride the 2014 models and I have no idea what you can improve because it's already the best kites I have rode since years

One of the great things I like from the lift profile of these kites apart from big air... Is a fun little trick where on take off from standstill, diving the kite only once - then send it hard into a backroll loop and gettin thrown 20 or 30 meters downwind yee haa :)
