I'm new here - hoping I picked the best kite forum, there were a ton to choose from!
I have a couple of (now pretty old school) kites.
A Club Spectre, which I adore. You can see it on p8 (p9 if you use the scroller) of the pdf here http://www.whkf.org.uk/Scrapbook/MK93.pdf
. It's fast and pulls really well in high winds, I just have a blast flying it. Never tried to trick it, just enjoy the noise and the power
I also have a Flexifoil Scorpion. Oddly enough this is in the same link on page 5. It's fun but I always end up flying the Spectre as soon as the winds are sufficient.
Now, I'm after either a kite that can do two things or two kites, not sure yet.
I'd like to nab a kite (still a delta if possible) that pulls even more than the Spectre. Not really looking to move to a foil type kite although I keep toying with the idea as I could get into 4 line flying. Is there anything around that might fit the bill? I saw the HQ Fazers, although they are a bit pricey. The XXL looks like it might be an utter blast...
Also the Prism 5 Nexus stack looks like it could generate a fair bit of pull.
For the really high winds the HQ Delta Hawk looks cheap and might fit the bill perfectly.
I would also like to get into tricking. The Scorpion I have might be enough to get going with, I'm not sure. I think I need to mess with the bridle a bit and see if I can get it to be more responsive. At the moment it sort of over steers and feels a bit loose in the wind.
The Prism Quantum looks as though it could be a nice entry trick kite...
Just to add - the wind is entirely variable here so maybe I just need a better low wind kite and stick to the Spectre for high winds.
Answering my own question a bit - it seems like I need a ton of kites
Thanks in advance
