Just do a search on what the Epic owner wrote and continuously tells his client- pump up the Screamers as hard as it gets (but leave the straps open in case you crash the kite). You forgot OldnBroken?Oldnbroken wrote:I've never pumped an Epic kite, or any other kite, to 11 psi.
I owned the exact kite models, year and sizes that Caesar is forever whining about...zero problems with them and I pumped them to 9 psi, no flying problems and no durability issues...at all.
Every company other than North suggests you pump their kites hard, including Wainman who has massive leading edge diameters.
The only kites that I've seen that don't hold shape properly are the Ozone Catalyst (and pre Catalyst) the Switch Nitro V1, every other kite I've ever owned held proper shape at 9 psi and less.

So you complain that someone post negative opinions then go on to suggest they are gay? Why so defensive?soul19 wrote:Really James? You make accusations and than you admitted to speaking out your ass! You have no first hand knowledge of the process that Dimitri follows to get his product made yet you speak with such arrogance. Epic kites are well made and have people that enjoy using these products... obviously you don't so move on. Why people feel the need to bash products is beyond me! Most folks buy what they like and just avoid what they don't. A special breed feel they need to be as destructive as possible. Nobody cares about your opinion as you have a vested interest in trolling. It takes very little effort to not go onto epic threads but you go to great lengths to show hate. Me thinks you have a man crush princess!

Poster: tautologies you complain that someone post negative opinions then go on to suggest they are gay? Why so defensive? I must say I thought this thread was great (I really enjoy reading about positive experiences) until Dimitri really shit on it by stating that he is not interested in saving on quality like most other companies. It is inflammatory and unnecessary.
You are a funny guy kiterjames. Obviously you have no idea about material cost and the way the factories operate. Believe me, I am not interested in saving money by taking short cuts like most companies do when it comes to quality. I want the best of the best. I am interested in bringing the best quality to the customers. And this takes time and a lot of R&D.
These are some of the response I get from some factories when I am building the EPIC kites: "Don't use this material use this, don't use this thread use this, don't sew it that way because it cost more money and it takes too long. Most companies use this method or this material.".....and the list goes on....
So once again if you are going to post something, please address something knowledgeable that can help us improving our EPIC product.

You forgot OldnBroken?
Cabrinha suggest no more than 8PSI. How does that sound? If you still have a manual (and if you actually owned any of those kites from 2009 onwards), have a look at them.
