In my opinion, the brand that jakster4 has moved to, fly like crappy beginner kites, and I've seen more problems (safety system release and reload in deep water, canopies splitting, valves leaking) than any other kite brand, but that's just my opinion from seeing the kites in my local crew, and I guess does not reflect the worldwide consensus.

I have been trying to sell my 9m and droid board for months with no luck. I will have to lower the price so much it’s almost not even worth selling.

To be honest with you you should have factored that in when you purchased them. If you buy a small brand you are going to have give it away when you resell it. The only small brand kite I have ever purchased was the Switch Element and when I sold it on it was at a very cheap price considering it was in very good condition - but I paid next to nothing for it to begin with so was still a pretty good deal for me. (the guy actually phoned me up and asked me if I had any more for sale at that price!) Unless you absolutely love the design of a kite from a small brand or are getting an insane deal you should stick to the larger brands IMO. If I tried to sell a 2010/2011 Epic used kite in the UK I would be lucky to get $200 for it complete.
