I would like to begin to learn tricks and I would like to use one of these kites E2, Hypnotist or Freestylist. I picked up a used BMK Mojo and since flying I have had ZERO intrest in flying the others. I know it's not a trick kite so I want to keep one of the others to learn tricks on and let the other 2 find a new home.

Thanks

I'd keep the Freestylist myself. I liked it way more than my E2 and it'll do lots of stuff well. I haven't tried a Hypno so I can't comment on it.

But pick the one you like best, any of those should work fine for basic learning. If you get into tricking you'll want something else soon enough anyway.

Have fun

I've never flown the E2 but I have flown the Hypnotist more then a few times, it remains conspicuously absent from my bags  Cheesy

That said I would never get rid of my Freestylist's, I have both the Standard & the UL in my A bag. The build quality far exceeds the Prisms, the sails are sewn by Heads Up Kites here in the USA then framed & bridled by Jon Trennophol himself. At the price Jon brought these kites out at they were the most overlooked deal of the last 5 years and the kite is more then capable. It's easy to fly even for begineers and can do anything you can throw at it.
