James, I will PM you so I don't get way off Infinity and light wind topic.

I have not tried the Judge but I have tried the Screamers. They scare me a bit every time I jump, the speed in which it pulls you up is not natural, certainly a kite for those riders that are always going full on.
I suppose if I was buying for myself I probably would have leaned more toward the screamers but since I was buying for my wife and I, the Renegade seemed like the more realistic choice.

They also have great characteristics
they relaunch good, not like the renegades but certainly better then most
very light bar pressure
turn on a dime and boost like crazy, if you want to jump high, these are the kites for you.

they do require a bit more attention

Really sorry to spoil your Dimitri's arse-kissing party boys, but you might want to keep an eye on your Renegades and - possibly - Infinitys when pumping up.
During my last trip I had a close call with my R13 - pumped it up, went riding very far from shore for a few hours, came back for a break and upon landing the kite it deflated.
Long story short - outer end of the leading edge bladder wasn't properly secured at the factory so eventually it folded into the leading edge and popped.

With all due respect Mr.alexeyga, but Helen did receive your email 3 days ago concerning your old RENEGADE 13 ltd v2 kite that you bought 11 months ago, and told you that we could not warranty the Leading Edge bladder because of the circumstances but in order to help you she offered you a new LE bladder at our cost instead of paying the full retail of $115. But you refused the deal. So as you can see from different customer's posts, we are doing all we can to keep our Epic kiters happy. But a hand full of people do take advantage of the service we offer, which is normal since we are doing such a great job.

Cheers boys! :bye:



My 14m screamer blew out in the exact same spot. Most frustrating thing ever.....

Hey Dimitri,

seams an involuntary tipo sneeked into your last ... maybe correct that...not that someone complains (even more) afterwards. :roll:

Cheers and keep it up

Thank you Mr.torto I just fixed that typo and removed the "y" from the end. But as you can see very easy to make a mistake.
I knew there was a "y" somewhere on his user name "alexeyga". Any way I think this video says it all.

hi,
I own a kite related business also. I have had some customers complain that they received the wrong product due to QC and want us to send them a new item for free. As soon as I ask for a picture so that I can record the issue and make sure it does not happen again, the customer refuses and rarely replies to my email... Funny how that happens.
I am not posting this to discredit anyone, but in the end, everyone pays for fraud!

This video is about grand mother "Granny Dee" getting a chance to test the performance of the INFINITY V3 kite in light wind conditions. Let's see what she has to say.
