I go from my 15m Siii to my 11m North Rebel. Maybe not 'the boostiest' compared to the Edge or the Screamer but defnitely soaks up the gusts better than most kites I've tried...

Highest jumping kite I know!


Nope! 12m Speed 3.... My go to kite for highest jumps. 15m definitely has more hang time.

I appreciate the input. I am going to take Billy up on the demo of the north kites. Already have the Speed 3 15m, it is truly an awesome kite. However, where I live there are days when the wind is so gusty, that you really need a tube kite.

K,

John G recently bought a 15m edge. Hit him up for a try on that.

I have a 15 meter edge that I like very much! jumps big for a 15 meter but you are usually flying it in lighter winds that are hard to jump big. Start with the kite really low when you send it and its awesome! I am selling my 2012 to get a 2013 so If you are interested let me know. Its in fantastic shape and has a newish bar and lines on it with less than 20 sessions. For me the 15 edge is the ultimate lightwind kite.

Here is a video of me flying my 15 edge.

I would also try out billy's dyno. He is so close and would be good to try as much as you can.

Thanks for all of the feedback. I bought a 15 Dyno. I also picked up an 18 Dyno just for kicks as well.
