I bought my Boss used, and will probably do the same for the other kites I add to my first quiver. Was in great shape but had a leaking valve, which I had repaired at a local shop for a pretty reasonable fee.
I'm not wanting to trap myself into switching kites more than riding, so appreciate the advice. You recommend sizing down 2M from the main kite and up 3M. These kites are within 1/2 sq m of being exactly that. Other than a lot of overlap, would a 10 or 9 be a better choice than 10.5; or 15 be better than 14.5? 14.5 is the largest delta kite in Wainman's line (was looking at a 17m Takoon on account of the low winds we get over the summer, but control bars aren't directly compatible).

The problem with kites too close together for some people is they spend most of the day on the beach trying to decide which size to take out as the wind fluctuates. We call it rigerbating. Also, it depends if you want to cover the largest range or be on the perfect kite with less overall coverage. But yea, to me those sound too close together. As a rule of thumb for a novice, find the kite size you will use the most and go up 3 sq meters and down 2 sq meters. As you get better and change styles you will find what works best for you.
