I can only speak for the HQ Kites Mojo.. It is not a kite to learn on.. Once you are already quad proficient it might be something to try. I have one in my bag. It hasn't been assembled for nearly 3 years now.

Well if ya got the loot then they all could be fun and maybe worth buying. I have met some folks who didn't take to a "Rev" type sailed kite but liked a Spirit or Deca better. At one time I was a huge Deca fan especially the zero wind ones...but they are all gone and my Rev collection is still here.

However there is a reason why the Rev type sailed quads....Revs, Djinn, OSK, Riffclown, etc. will always be the benchmark....they just endure and work.

Yes, Revs will always be my go to kites. Just wanted to try something different. Riffclown is making me a custom rev- can't wait 😀

The Fulcrum can definitely provide a unique change of pace. It is currently one of the three kites I keep partially broken down in my truck with lines attached. I'm getting pretty consistent launching to rising fade and some things I don't have the vocabulary (or the background in freestyle tricks) to be able to describe.

Yes, I have a 5 meter Crossfire that tried to kill me. 

LOVE my HQ Crossfires..Also the 8M Toxic is a sail to be respected..but those are all powerkites and INTENDED to move the flier in some form.

True. I used it for a land board on the beach. The crossfire's are fun kites, but I'd recommend replacing the cheap HQ kitekillers. I NEVER let go of the handles so I never thought I would ever use them. When you're hovering 6 feet off the ground looking at the parking lot, you have to let go of the handles 😂. The kitekillers instantly ripped away from the wristbands.

I'd rather go retrieve the kite than call an Ambulance.. ;)  I attach my Kite killers to the brake bridles rather than the handles.. It collapses the kite a bit better. TBH, I don't powerkite much any more.. Not nearly as resilient as I used to be.. Probably should consider selling them at some point..

Do you know Spiderkites from Germany? The Smithi kills nobody but flies a bit like a Rev. https://shop.spiderkites.com/Smithi-11-PS-Ventex_1

I have one in custom colors and the new sail "P-30 Denier". "Ventex" is no longer available.

Good Morning 

I'm New here and fresh from the UK.  I bought the  HQ Meteoas an Introduction to Quad Line Stunt Kites after many years Flying my Delta's.  I think it is a Great Sail and Very Forgiving for a Novice like myself.

Kit was very good value for money.

Stay Safe
