So I was going through my kite bag, to take photos of my old school kites and found a Renegade Kite.  Can anyone tell me about it?

My mistake, I have only 1 NSR.  I had both a large and small file for each kite, I fixed it.

hope you come fly with us sometime.

Are you all going to be out at the Silver Bowl this Friday?

I used to have 6 Renegades, but now have only 3. I do have one the exact same color of the one in your picture. The standard Renegade (like yours) is framed in Fiberglass spars, size G-50. The kite is fairly heavy, and is an old school style with no standoffs. Uses Clear vinyl tubing for all leading edge Spreader connectors. Wind range is 5-40 mph. The kite makes a very loud sound in flight. be Careful not to fly it in too strong of winds, or you'll shread the sail at the trailing edge (bottom). There's a review of the Renegade, in one of the old issues of Stunt Kite Quarterly Magazine (SKQ), which is available for download at http://kitelife.com

I bought a couple of Pam's kites from her store/studio in Fremont when the business was closing.
I think I still have a couple of Renegades along with a couple of another of her kites, I think they were called pro comps (?) but not sure.
Between my neighbor and I, we must have aver a half dozen.

Dont' forget swivels!

The Renegade also was a great kite to stack, thus why you here other owners having multiples of three.  I flew a Renegade stacked with a Chicago Fire Dart and it was a blast.

Exactly, why I have so many Renegades. I use to fly them stacked. I started stacking them in 1989. The kite came stock with G50 fiberglass spars, and in strong wind, I would insert A20 fiberglass spars inside the the G50 spine and bottom spreaders of the front kite in the stack to help support the added stress placed on it because of the pull from the trailing kites in the stack.

I had a renegade that Pam made for me , I had a mid air while flying team and had it repaired but it never flew the same , the Kite if I remember was the same size as a 3/4 Spin off if anyone remembers those .
