Buy the sprint n sell to me ;-) TBH I'm not sure I'd fly a 2m sprint inland. Higher winds (when you have a little kite) tend to be even more brutal and gusty.

The sprints are like ribbons (long n thin), in a nice steady wind they're a lovely buggy engine, hardly any downward pull and plenty of forwards. But in gusty winds they tuck and luff all the time - think of your Pred on steroids :)

You could hold on to your money and wait for a real BOGOF, where you can choose your own kite combo.

Or look at the Leg-ends... old design but stable n cheap (replaced by the Flux). Then there's the Blaze I, just a bit of a step up from the Flux...

well I tried to hold off and wait as long as possible for a new year deal like you suggested but my resolve finally crumbled when i had a look on the website and they were offering a new year deal of a free set of lines with every kite :cry: so I decided to snap up the 3m & 6m flux deal in the end. ooh it's like having xmas all over, waiting for them. :D

Jamie from what I'm see you've nearly got it cracked and within 6 mth to a year you will have sort of out grown what you have..if there's a bargain to be had then go for it..won't gather dust for long..

I have promised myself that once I crack being fairly proficient in the buggy and hopefully with a harness then I'm setting aside 500 quid or so for a decent size buggy of the non folding variety :) hopefully within the next year.
