Thanks for all the tips! I'm probably going to look for a single strut, possibly ultra or peak4 instead of the speeds. Time to save some cash. Haha.

If you are very on budget can get pansh kites, they are very cheap.
Why all the time guys try to push this kites?
They are only for people who like to spend a lot of time for trimming it right!
Normally I use Flysurfer Soul and Sonic.
I had for testing 15m Aurora3 and own 6m Genisis.
The Aurora3 had a lot of collapses and the Genisis is really slow and bad upwind.
If you like a closed cell kite for less budget go with Flysurfer Speed4 Lotus or Speed5.

Offended?
I didn’t see any pushing. Just an individual sharing another possible option.
Maybe we should just appreciate a person’s polite input.

I’ve used a few Pansh kites (A15 and Aurora II) right out of the bag and they’ve flown very well with no trimming needed. After all the Pansh bashing I’ve read (mostly by people who don’t have experience with foil kites) I was impressed.

I’d be happy to use Pansh kites except I chose to go with Peak 4’s. My friends who use them love them and haven’t had issues. I think they are the best deal out there if one wants good kites for the lowest price (and is willing to tune if necessary).

I have a few Flysurfer Sonics and have had to tune those more than any other kites to keep them flying well. I don’t mind a little tuning if that’s what it takes. And they happen to be really easy to tune.
