I'm not sure about the Nipper but I do have a Erazor and it is mainly used
when the wind is blowing to hard for most kites. It tricks very well and
even in the lower wind range it has some awesome pull for such a little
kite. I would also have to say that it will take a beating. Learning some
new tricks in the upper wind range I have met the ground pretty hard at
times and I have not managed to break anything yet! It's really fun to fly
when the wind is above 15 mph. Very fast spin rate. I like doing a spin into
The Psycho is a great kite. I love flying mine but I keep breaking the
leading edge spars where the metal connector is on the leading edge. I have
even reinforced it with standoff sparing glued inside the main tubing with
no results. I only wish they still made Beaman spars to reframe the hole
kite in Beamans. I just keep buying spars for it because I love flying it.
It's radical as hell. Guess I should break down and get that Toe Jam or
Tohuwabohu at $139.
Good luck in what ever you decide!
May the wind always be over your shoulders!
