I'm looking for a killer deal on a new quiver.

I'm looking for a killer deal on a new quiver of wave and or freestyle kites. Anyone have a good inside line on such a deal? (my old source dried up)

fyi, a killer deal to me is 30%-40% off 2012 kites.

Thanks

What big kite drifts the best?

I am looking for the best drifting big kite for side on light wind down the line wave riding. (Unfortunately for me, my definition of a big kite is a 16 or 18.)

What is the most important factor in a big kite being able to drift in light wind?
weight?, design?, other?
