Selling my Epic Screamer 14m kite
This is a powerhouse of a kite , suitable for the heavier rider or for lighter winds and will fly on any 4 line bar/lines
This is the 2011 version, but the 14m screamers were revised for this year and haven't really gone any substantial changes since. This kite turns like a 12m
The kite has a couple of canopy repairs one small pin prick and the other for a small tear. All these are professional stitched repairs and do not affect performance

Looking 225 + P&P - PM or email me for full pics (trevorni@hotmail.co.uk)

See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IGczMLPobY for some more info

Here's a review from EPIC Screamer 14 m, 10 m ltd - SBC Kiteboard Magazine :

Jun 9, 2011
Author: SBC Kiteboard Test Team


The Screamer is the high-powered, big-boosting, high-altitude freestyle and freeride kite of the Epic C-kite line that includes the Renegade and Junior Pro lines. For 2011, the 14 metre has improved turning speed and reduced bar pressure with new improvements in frame construction and overall durability.

Highlights
• Big boosting, big hangtime kite
• Good low-end power
• Easy water relaunch

On the Water
The Epic Screamer has good low-end power that is complemented by reactive steering input for its size and smooth drive across the window. In the right hands, the drive of this kite is augmented by some nice power generation through diving and edging it hard across the window. It’s a fun kite that the advanced rider can steer/fly aggressively. Fast pulling and consistent power through down loops let you carve with good drive and speed through transitions. It turns and reacts quickly and with the turning speed of a smaller sized kite. Good acceleration and aggressive power is felt through the gusts. These can be tamed by sheeting out the bar and edging hard. This kite likes to have consistent input from its rider and the rewards are big jumps, and long hangtime. The Screamer is also well rounded in its performance and can hold its own while unhooked to guarantee aggressive pop with some extra lift. Its water relaunch is excellent and one of the easier large kites to rotate and take flight with a pull of the steering line. The good forward pulling speed and low-end power will also represent the Screamer well on any race circuit.

Reality Check
Designed for intermediate to advanced riders that react to the formidable increase in power experienced when gusts drive this kite. Not as versatile for waves as some of the all-terrain SLEs of the test.

Bottom Line
It’s a kite for advanced riders that want a big-boosting, high-powered freestyle kite that demands attention but rewards experience with huge boosting, and fast and aggressive handling. It caters to the rider that loves powered freestyle manoeuvres at high altitudes, and can also hold its own for the odd unhooked park session. The Epic Screamer is a high-performance kite.
