I had that proto in Corpus Christi for testing last week, it is going to Greece tomorrow.Geronimo79 wrote:When I stayed at Dimitris house there was a new prototype Judge there.
I've seen pictures here from this kite as well.
It is a bridled 9 Meter...not the tiny front line connection arrangement on the stock Judge kites.
So it is something more like a Blade Prime...or Ozone C4, Core GTS2, Cabrinha Chaos, Nobile 50Fifty, Switch Element 2, Naish Park, SS RPM.
Dimitri has not said that Judges are getting bridles, he is just trying things like always.
Kind of funny, the first comment when I pumped it up, was that it was a great looking kite.
I explained that it was just a simple proto graphic design, but the guy said it was good the way it is.
Direct feel, with a nice quick no hesitation turn, does not feel sle-ish.
Generates power through the turns like a C kite should.
Backs up properly when you ride towards it.
Don't know about boost, as I was on a strapless surfboard.
More sheeting range than the stock Judge has, for sure...more useable range.
Airframe feels really solid in the air, like the stock Judge.
Feels like more bottom end than a 9M C kite normally has.
It was baddass...typical Epic kite!
