I'm an advanced rider and now want to buy my first own kite =P
I search for a kite for freestyle, with quite a long Hangtime which is very flexible & fast.
Can you help me finding a good one?
If you're advanced and into freestyle, i'd assume you're gonna be in for one of the top Cs out there.
The only valid advice you can get is try them all and buy the one you feel in love with.
There is no objectively "better" kite out there, differences are tiny. Think at it like at the top 3-4 teams in F1...the differences in performance in reality are minimal.
I'm no advanced by any mean, but i guess any advanced rider can confirm. The better you are, the less you are going to feel the difference of the kite. It's 95% about the rider: give to me a 2008 kite and i'll be able to perform 50% of the tricks i do on a 2013 kite, give the same 2008 kite to an advanced rider and he'll perform 95% of what he does vs. a 2013 one.
At least this is what i've seen around spots worldwide.
