This was the first kite I bought. I have had it nearly a year and have been very pleased with it. It is stable, easy to fly and seems well made with stiched bridles and a quality drawstring bag.
It doesn't pull massively compared to my mates 3m Firebee but it is easier to control and doesn't collapse like his. It also flys well with less wind but does pull well as the wind gets stronger.
He thought it flew and turned better than his despite the lower pull generated. I havn't seen them advertised anywhere on the web so I dont know if I got a good deal or not but it came as a package from a local kite seller complete with four (20m I think) lines, a simple bar and an Exit Bomber landboard for £200.
I put Kite Essentials handles on it and used the bar for another kite and it flys well on either. It is shaped like a mattress so has a low aspect ratio and low lift. I guess this makes it a traction kite for buggies and maybe landboarding.
It is definately a good kite for beginners who don't want too much power or trouble with using their first kite and have a limited budget.
