Recommendations for High-Wind Freestyle Kite

Hiya,

Given the imminent approach of autumn (and the more blustery weather
that ensues) I was considering a high-wind trick kite.

I'd been thinking along the lines of the Alien, or Psycho - but would
welcome any thoughts you could add.

I currently fly a Gemini and Outerspace, and don't really want to
spend too much - just something to throw about when it's too scary for
the others :)

Ta,

Dave

I fly a Prism Stylus 1.8 and/or Prism Micron when the wind picks up around
and over 30mph.

The Prism Alien is also supposed to be a good high wind kite, but I haven't
flown one yet.

The Pyscho (Flexifoil maybe??) is another.

Get a Mini-Gem..

I know you said you don't want to spend alot, but the Mini-Gem is a great
kite in higher winds, and some even like it as a regular wind kite as well..

OK,

Plumped for a Psycho at the end of it.  Was a good dose cheaper than
an Alien, or Mini-Gem, and already having a full-sized Gem I reckoned
it'd be something quite different.

Video looks a bit manic - Flying off cliff faces and the like! Eeek!

Thanks to all who answered - Appreciate the input.

Dave

There is also the Slect One Tohuwabohu (Toe Jam) and the Mathcbox by
Benson!

Great high wind kites!

I belive that www.beckyskites.com still has some Toe Jams!

I am looking at getting a Yellow MatchBox so if any one has a used one in
that
color and willing to sell; let me know!
Or better yet a Dealer with a new yellow matchbox; let me know!
