I knew it never had bridles.
I think it would be a great kite with a bridle, I think it would increase the depower range and allow it to turn better while sheeted out.
Would appeal to a larger audience, like the RPM, C4, Vegas, Prime, Nobile 50Fifty.
Slingshot sells way more RPM's than Fuels!

This is not a free for all advertising arena, it's a place for riders to connect. Any of us who work in this industry know that if you want to advertise, you do it in a magazine, or online with a banner campaign. Defrauding Toby's forum (regardless of all circumstances) for your own personal gain is selfish. Nobody cares what you ride, or how amazing you think your gear is. I think it is only fair to ban Dimitri from this forum and remove all of the Epic threads. He owns his own website, and should start his own forum there where he can talk about his gear all he wants. Just like Best does.

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.



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).


I kinda was stoked about the Green Renegade when it came out until one of my friends got one. Turns out the damn thing blends in with the background just about everywhere we ride, so it's hard to spot each-other at a distance whenever we're riding all together.

So as such, the red one is unbeatable and the Yellow/Black/White combination of the 13Ltd and Screamers is a total killer!!! :thumb: The all-Black 10LTD works great as well.

Also, I wasn't too keen on the asymmetrical 3G color schemes when it was announced... hell! I was wrong! Never even noticed it while riding! :bye: :thumb:

In my opinion, the Renegades are the best looking kites of everything out there.
I agree, the simple R13LTD gold/black is easy to live with.
I am totally fine with all black also.
The single color kites (Judge, Infinity, S10LTD) look great and you don't get sick of them over time.
No white canopies..to fight staining.
I don't care for neon colors- safety orange and yellow.
And I hate pink kites.
The Renegade red is really good.

Oldnbroken do you not think a pink kite will bring out your feminin side lol.
I personally dont like totally black kites - the last thing i want is to a black man with a black kite and a black black board (yes i have these) on a dark stormy day with black clouds... Though to add a bit of color to it - i just wear a white hoodie lol.
That blue n yello is quite catchy..

I'm way too pretty for pink!! :P
I don't care for the color pink on any products really, even on girls clothes (black and red and deep purple, and bold colors, no soft pastel crap).
Yeah, the blue n yellow is a good combo for that kite.

+1 what ryanroberts said. The FREE Advertising and Pimping is way beyond old. You don't see other Kite companies constantly pimping and BSng. Let Toby introduce New kites and products like he already does and then go to the Companies website.

OR, if Toby is good with the PIMPIN then Carve out another Forum area that manufacturers can Spew their Tech BS till the cows come home.

Lets get this Forum back to where it was a couple of years ago.

Toby, set up a Vote and let's vote on is. I'm good with the results wherever they land.

There are 75 threads per page and 14 forum categories already, that would be 980 threads to choose from at any time
...and that's just on the first pages!
There appears to be lots of room on the forum, just the way it is.
Nobody is twisting your arm to click on the threads you don't want to be a part of.
I've been told it's smart to stop worrying about what other people are doing, and to focus on controlling my own actions.
The people who are here, want to be here, if you don't no problem.. just steer your mouse a quarter inch in either direction before clicking and your problem is solved.
All the best Mr.14.
