I have been interested in the Judge kite and was wondering if you are also working on improving that kite from the 3G model? It appears that this is one part of the Epic product line that gets very little attention. What is the overall opinions of this kite outside the little that is found on this site? I am curious as to how others compare this to the Vegas/Hifi or rather the RPM/C4? Demo's are not an option where I live so for the most part I buy before I try (gotta love the used market) and that option can be frustrating at times. I am finicky when it comes to my gear and if I don't like something I move on quickly. I have enjoyed Wainman kites, love my 2007 waroo but hated the Kahoona's, tried and own a Nano but not a fan of that kite, been on Hifi's (liked them but hated the 2009 bar) and currently riding Noise kites 10/6 (nice kites but not awe inspiring). I am not a great kiter but don't shy away from trying anything (I don't care if it is a C, bow, hybrid or delta). I have no particular preference in riding style (wakestyle, waves, freestyle, snow kiting or free riding) and at this point a kite that can dabble in all disciplines seem good to me. I have a fear that the renegade is too similar to the Nano and the screamer just doesn't interest me. I like the look of the judge and was hoping that it would be similar to the RPM/C4. Also I like that it comes in just the 11/8 and that would fit in nice between the noise kites that I own.
comes in 11/8 and now in 6 meter also. I think you need to demo one so you get a better understanding about the JUDGE "C" kite. Every body that has been looking for a "C" kite and tried the JUDGE kite did really like it and few of them were surprise that they don't hear much about the JUDGE kite.
The only reason you don't hear too much about the JUDGE "C"
kite is because it is a totally different style and most of the wake style people are kids and they are the one looking for this type of kite. Me personally it is not my kite because it doesn't have the hang time that the SCREAMER has for the tricks I like to do. But it is a very powerful kite and that is why we had to make also a 6 meter JUDGE. I think the best thing for you will be to try it so you can get your answer so you can compare it with the RPM/C4. If you don't care about the hang time then yes the JUDGE will be a good call. But have you had the chance to try the RENEGADE!!! Because that is a great kite also.
Any way email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
to find our were you are located and see if there is a dealer near you that you can demo the kite. But any way email me and we go from there.
