If you want a fast dual line you might look at the Prism Micon. Or maybe a Night Hawk.

bottom line? trick kites are generally slower. As mentioned above the prism micron is really fast and can handle A LOT of wind but they are small.. inexpensive though. You might want to search speed kites Roll Eyes. There are a few connoisseurs here

hi guys
thanks for your info and input.
i after a kitea round the 90-96" size.
preferbly a free style design that is good for just cruising around!
money is no problem weather it be $300-400 type.
as i said im not really into tricks just some thing with a bit of speed and pull to it!
but im not after a speed kite as such,just a sport design kite!
thanks

if money is no problem then get a prism Quantum. Fairly fast ,pulls hard and you can send me the other 2 or 3 hundred bucks LOL
Actually I think you would enjoy it (the kite not sending me the$)

Don't buy a prism apart from Maybe a zephyr. Their models are old.

The WM will serve you very well for cruising and also tricks but will feel uncomfortable in anything over 20 Mph winds. With the WM in light winds you can was so remove the top spreader and the tail weight which is Velcro which makes the kite fly lower.

I still prefer the NSE over the widow maker though the build quality with the widow maker is excellent.

Quantum Pro is by far one of the best kites you can buy for the money IMHO. It cuts corners like no other and tricks super well. Its large and holds alot of wind in the sail.

If you want a nice kite to cruise around in, and save a bit of money, look at the full size Premier Widow NG. It's good up to about 20 mph.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVBTaQBn4ok
