One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

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 SupeFly 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...

I think theres something to be said about the L1 black pearl line as well. Super fine kites with everything up their sleeve.

BPs are really nice.  I borrowed one and found it challenging to Taz and to a lesser exent backspin, but better flyers and me have found it to be less of an issue. Just something to be aware of.

The SKD Seven is still worth considering and of course there is the evergreen Benson Deep Space, both of which are impeccably made.  There are plenty of other European options as well.  I will leave our stateside friends to suggest any US kites.

The MX comp is a good choice. I flew a friend mx comp and love it more than my Superfly.
I feel that I have better control with mx comp in landings and comete cascade. It is also not overly sensitive in crappy winds.
PAW's Crow and Lumokites Vital are good too.
Can add Rsky Shooter to the mix but the measurements and settings have to be spot on.
