Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
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.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

It's 2m so no on the "small".

Minigem new or from the second hand market Dot Matrix, Psycho, Trancer, Area 51  Wink Actually that reminds me... I must get my Trancer into the air this winter. It's daft but in a really, really good way.

@ Kiter

It depends if you are looking for a fast trick kite or for a true speedkite.

If you are looking for a true speedkite, you can try the Long Duong Tiger II or the new Mustang (picture in attached).

Official measured speed for the Tiger II : 182 km / h  Wink

But take care, High-speed Long Duong kites are not for Newbies !

I'm not too keen on da idea of One Size Fits All Huh Grin
In the past I've had a couple of the early Mini Gems, a Standard, & an UL Gem in my bag @ once. As long as I had a Mini & an UL I rarely went for my Standard. When I had the lowest of winds my UL didn't cut it, I'd go for Ozone (but then I sux  Wink).
And I love the Mini so much I just nailed another, but I can't see it fitting da bill as an All Around gotoer IMH(umble)O

At this point I might say a SilverFox 2.3 if U R wanting a one size fits all, & wantin' to save $$$. If not, I think I would try a DS Standard. But then I change my mind like da clouds change their shapes Cool Dat's off da top of my head, there are many ways to skin a kat.

Good luck in your choice
