Which beast is best?

Hi I'm fairly new to this power kiting lark having bought my first power kite about two weeks ago. I've got a Flexifoil Bullet 2.5 which is a scream but I think it's a bit underpowered even in 15+ mph winds. I had a play on a 6.4 metre^2 bladeII yesterday which was ace. Essentially my question is to which kite should I upgrade if I want a lot more air and a lot more power if I want to landboard in 10-15mph winds. I'm also a student hence not a lot of cash so would like a decent kite with good value for money. Andy

Hey Andy, Im not so sure about getting much kite for less money. I posted an answer to another guy here about being on a limited budget. You blade 3 6.6 Would be a fine choice for that speed wind. If you would like a bit lower wind, you can go with a Macpara Bego 600. :o Cheaper than the Blade 3 4.9 and as much power and lift as the Blade 3 8.5. This is an awesome kite. It does take some flying skill though. Without dropping close to $500.00, your not going to get something that produces much power sub 10mph. You want to go 20-25mph, the prices are much cheaper. If you want a Mac, lemme know, I can get you a good deal on one.

Hope this helps
