I would like to introduce myself and request some assitance in buying my next kite.
I am Lee and live in Nottinghamshire, I have flown kites for many years ranging from a £10 stunt kite from Shell Island (where it all started), Flexi psycho, stranger, super 10's, Gemini, traction kites with buggies, depowers, Revs. i now have no kites
I thought I wanted to start with Revs again, but as my age tumbles on (36) I am getting more interested in trick flying (stunt, sports,framed or what ever the PC name is given now).
As I am a pretty competant kite flyer generally I am thinking about getting a good kite to start with as I know I like kite flying albeit I stink at tricks!
I have read loads of posts on this site and GWTW, where everone suggests kites, but I am not sure where anyone in the UK would buy these kites from (Widow Maker, R-sky etc etc) obviously I am aware of Mr Benson and normally I would have bought one from the Highwaymen, but I think the shop is closed down.
So what would everyone recommend for my first proper sport kite to fly in 5-20 capable of all tricks and ideally just making shapes
, I would like to buy a kite ideally which has an UL sister / brother to accompany it in the future. Also where would you / do you all buy your kites from?
