Trickiest freestyle kite.

Wed Jun 11, 2014 3:03 pm

I find myself leaving the Revs in the bag and reaching for my dual line kites these days. But with it being winter here in Oz I'm not getting as much flight time as I would like so progression has been a bit slow. I have a UL and Std set of Temptation's by KaoS which serve me well currently. But there is always the new kite itch. Down here it is a case of listen to opinions and "buy then try". I'm looking to get something purely for tricks for when summer hits.

So, my question is,
"What is the trickiest kite currently available?"

The Superfly is an obvious choice. MX Comp is in the mix with SKD back for the Euro summer. But thats about as far as I get in the dedicated freestyle kites. All suggestions will be duely investigated...

Is SKD still afloat. I thought he had closed up shop.

Only flown the SF but have to say I like it a lot, fun!
