:lol:

He still posts (some call it 'pimping') on kiteforum on a regular basis - nothing but rave reviews posted there! :rolleyes: if you're in the US he'll probably send a demo out to you or arrange it, if you mail him - so you can make up your own mind.

I was going to go to the effort of trying out the Infinity, but despite the B.S. claims the fan-boi's post, every single private email conversation I've had with owners and users say it's an ok kite but sits so far back in the window it's tough to go upwind. At all.

And I don't like the bar :lol:




Yeah... I got a kite. Or two...

Are we talking about the Epic Kite? if so I have flown a 9M it was nice and I hear the line up is very nice to fly and also on the cheaper side but the BAR'S suck...:dunno:

I know Traveler here in VA that flys/sells them and recommends them but also says "fly them on another dealers Bar!"

My two cents.. hehe

I'm at the Southern end of the banks, "he" doesn't usually head down here (thankfully). I met a couple of the Epic team members but have yet to actually see or try one of the kites.

On plus side, the Infinity will get you riding in 0 to 5 knots :lol:

You're on the wrong forum for Epic :lol:
For cheap kites, I'd try Griffen or Switch before Epic ...

Griffin Argos are sweet kites, well made, and very affordable.....................we have a local Aussie who flies Argos. I almost went with one before I went with the Wainmans............................

I like the bar better too :lol: I emailed them about a demo and they said sorry no, but we'll give you good deal on one :thumbup:

Tried emailing the bar guy at Switch but still no answer ... it LOOKS like they work on a similar system to the Cabs and I'm betting they could be modded for PL's real easy with a front-line safety ...

... too many kites, not enough dollars :(
