IMO: check some big shops (Powerkiteshop e.g. or others compatible with your country for delivery, texes, etc.). Find a brand new but "old" kite, last year or two years ago model from a major brand. Same price as the Maelstrom but you get a kite you can sell once you get bored. Personal tastes, nothing wrong with Maelstrom or other China brands.

My point was not to ask if it was a good option to buy one but to know how this kite behave like.
