There is no one kite that gives fastest lift up. Once you know how to use them, you need pumping wind, good timing, and a bit of luck, and you will accelerate upwards nicely on any of todays brands.

well, my psycho rips me off the water as soon as i send it for a jump, and pull in the bar to power up. In good winds, i can even get more lift from pumping the bar in and out, like a bird flapping its wings.
