picking a second kite

I have a Peter Lynn hype trainer 1.9m, and I love it. I'm looking for a second kite. I want a four line kite that I can use mostly for static flying but could be used for bugging in the future. I want a kite that will allow me to grow with it. Thank you

Do a search on this forum for the word "Newbie" and you'll find lots of advice. Below are two examples:



The standard answer for a first quad line power kite is a beginner 3m kite, something like a Peter Lynn Hornet or HQ Beamer.

PL Vipers are awesome kites. They are certainly kites that you can grow with and never get tired of. Fantastic engines for a buggy and loads of fun flying static. They are fast yet forgiving kites if that makes sense. Just my 2 cents but you can not go wrong with a viper :D:D:D

PB: 53.1 mph
PL: Vapor 2.7 Leopard 13.5 Fury Lite 17 Vibe 1.5 FB X-over bar (x2)
Flexifoil: Rage 4.7
Ozone: Frenzy 9UL, Frenzy 11UL
Buggy: MG Edge
Board: ABoards Glide

Waiting for WIND!

I have an HQ Beamer 3.0 for sale, but it is Kite Only. $85+ shipping. I had it listed on For Sale for a while, but took it off. I will update my listing.
