Lots of changes and advances in kites around 07/08 so that's a good cut off marker for second hand, obviously conditition is important. With one exception i've never paid more than £350 for a kite - 09's and 10's, never had a prob.GregWoj wrote:Sorry man, I don't have a lot of insight to the stuff pre 2012. I just know the stuff I tried when I was learning seemed to have a few more features than my buddies older stuff. If you would like to elaborate on how older stuff (pre 2010) may even be safer and better im all ears.sijandy wrote:haha bullshit... you get that straight off the product website?GregWoj wrote: Buy a kite made after 2012 model year and after. Seems to me the stuff that was made that year and certainly after shifted gears with ease of use, increased wind ranges, and most importantly, the bars/line systems from a safety and easy of use perspective.

Yeah that's what they "told" you. There are salesmen in the world for a reason. I understand cost is a factor but like someone else said, when learning you want something that's easy to re-launch. My 11m Cab SB is very easy to re-launch and has been a good kite to learn on.KyletheKiteman wrote:Thanks for all the postive responses you are all giving me. I've been watching many instructional videos and getting as much out off the internet so I have an idea before lessons. And the kite I bought is like new and was only used once or twice by the previous owner. Its super crispy and the bladders hold air.
