Flysurfer.
Flexifoil are a close second though because their PR is brilliant.
Ozone are a great company as well.
Some of the kitesurfing companies i'm not so fond of (best, for example) but cabrinha and north are very good and make top class inflatables!

I like flysurfer best because of the combination of excellent customer service, free repairs and absolutely incredible kite designs... :)

Depends what for, For speed I'm sort of hooked on the PKD Combats, For freestyle, fixed bridal the Flexi Blades are on top.

For surf and freestyle ATB, the PL Scorpion is doing it for me no problem.

I like the ozone kites, top quaility all the way, kite designs are good and vary depending on what you want. The flexifiol blade is very nice kite as well.

The blades seem to like a little more wind though, I was just out last weekend, probably 8-10mph winds max, put the BIV 8.5m 25m lines, head to head against my old 9m Buster I, 30m lines. What I found suprized the heck out of me. Seems the Buster makes more power in the lower winds, Tried a couple power settings on the blade as well, got it a bit closer for power, but it ended up generating more downwind pull than I like. Add 5mph of winds though and the Blade really shines.
