Best oldschool kite 2013 and 2014

Looking to buy a new kite for Airstyle/oldscool. What is the best 2013 or 2014 kite?

People told me to look at Ozone Edge and North Rebel

Jeff Howard from kiteboarding.com explaining what makes a kite better for jumping. Looks like he suggests the Ozone edge but any kite designed for racing will work. I own switch nitro 2's and in the bigger sizes they definitely hang you up there for a while.

Yeah Any High Aspect ratio kite with nice hang and glide will do the job. I'm not a specialized Old School rider but have really enjoyed Petert Lynn Fury and Fury Light kite. It has the high aspect with high boost and hang time that you need but also still remains responsive. If you can, go demo them somewhere...
