S10M LTD has an insane low-end and even if it's not enough for jumping, you can still go upwind and ride like there's no Tomorrow! I was also rather surprised by the gust handling ability of that kite - eats gusts for breakfast!
In my experience this is one of the smoothest 10M kites to date!
I remember somebody recommending the S10LTD as the perfect 1-kite-quiver.
Couldn't agree more! :thumb:
Glad you decided you are happy with it. :wink:

Dj A-Ron,
What do you mean by "DOPE"? Is that good or bad?

That is a color combination I don't like.
And that is unusual.
I like almost all of the Epic graphics.
Personal preference sure makes it hard for designers!! :P

DOPE is always good :thumb:

I've always thought the blue and orange colors looked good together. Should be popular with the Florida Gator fans.

What do you mean "I've decided"? I was always happy with it! :lol:

As far as colors go - from the experience I can tell that the bright and toxic colors are the best. Red being on top of the list and the Green being the worst.

Another great day here on the Outer Banks (NC.USA).

P.S. Dj A-Ron, I think the Yellow Renegade 6.5 (4G) and the Rasta Renegade 9 (4G) are DOPE :jump:

I would almost always agree with you. Red would be the best and then green would be my last choice, but that Green Renegade 9 looks pretty cool (and I could normally care less about colors).

Yeah, obviously the Rasta kite is gonna be DOPE! Duh :cool2:

The Yellow and Blue are sweet too! Gotta love them Michigan colors.

6.5m...really...?! You're not going Wainman on us are you?

Seriously though...can you let us know what you have changed on the new 4G Renegades?! I can't imagine they are any better than my 2011 Renegade 11m...! Best kite I have ever owned or flown!

Red fo sure, anything visible at sea works. Not white

I like the Renegade green color....I like it best with a green and black combo.
I like red kites too, the deep red that was used on the 3G Renegade 7M is great.
I like the gold (yellow) and blue combination in these pics.
The Rasta combo is cool.
White always gets stained.
Black never gets stained.
Your Blue and Yellow for the new Infinity looks great, but the all gold and the all blue worked too.
I like the all gold (yellow) Judge look, but the wingtip graphic could use an update.
Also, put a bridle on the Judge. :)
