Good beginner buggy handle kites

Beamer and Hornet. Both fine kites. Have had them both and in numerous series/generations and flown even older and earlier ones. The current ones are really refined.

Someone who has flown both; can you quantify any difference between the two as for power or flying traits? I can't and feel they must be subtle if any.

And if anyone new is reading this; when it's time to get some wheels:

Totally adequate buggy. Tires can be changed out(barrow/midi/bigfoot); forks made, longer downtube if need be, wider axle if wanted; custom side rails if wanted; etc. Great starter buggy and perfectly fine as is. I rode a barrow tired folder exclusively for many years and put 1,000's of miles on it(no exaggeration). I recently gave it to an enthusiastic newbie so we'd have one more local buggy'er in our scene.

Do you know where a BF fork is?
How about the longer neck?
My PL Rally wants to grow a little.

Just have to build them or have them built.

Just spoke at a windofchange. Seems they do have or can order me a midi fork for the PL Rally/Drifter.

I'll be rollin on midis in the grass soon, well at least I'll have midis and be in the grass.

Problem solved. Thanks to you one and all.
