Kite Number 2


So after flying the Fluxx 2.2m for a few days, I'm already thinking about kite number 2, but have no idea where to even start.

Wants:

More stability
Less susceptible to collapsing mid pull thru the window
Something with a little lift to it, not looking for huge air, but a little pull every now and then for some more excitement would be nice.
At least a 4 line
600 bucks or less RTF

Do I need handles or a bar? Does it matter?
Can I go straight from a 2 line FB control bar setup to a de-power?
Am I ready for a de-power?

Are there any resources I can look up?

Oh yeah, I'm 5'10" and around 220lbs and wind conditions vary from dead to a steady 15ish mph with gusts in the mid to upper 30s


Anything else, just ask. I'm open to anything and everything.


Thanks all!!!

What are you goals...? Buggy, ATB, static... that will factor into your decision. There are kites that will do all. There are kites that are better suited for each discipline. I do believe there is a thread outlining all these choices.
