Lightwind dual-line kite

Hi folks,
I enjoy dual-line kites for fun flying and looking for a good lightwind kite - not much for tricks, more for joy. Thought of Prism 4D but there must be some bigger or lighter. Would you suggest, please?

The one I fly and enjoy is the Pro Dancer from Skyburner

I haven't flown a dual in a while, so I can't help. But Paul flies dualies a lot, so that's good advice.

There are 3 stores that regularly contribute this forum, I'm surprised that none have jumped in here.
You might want to call each of them and compare their advice. Please share what you learn back here.

Maybe some of them are in Vegas at KTAI :) . . . It would be warmer than here.

I also don't fly dualies (and I was never any good when I did) so I'm sorry, I don't have any advice.

Hi everyone,

I've been flying duals and have a Prism 4D. It's probably in the top 1-3 kites as far as being the lightest on the market. There is a Sky Burner which may be lighter, by a 10th of an ounce. I'm not even sure what a 10th of an ounce difference could be. I've flown the 4D indoors and it flies nicely. The 4D will struggle over 13mph,, and I find it happiest at 5-12mph. You have to be really careful w/the controls as it's real responsive and will do most everything you want it to do. When nothing else will fly, the 4D will take off easily.

When I fly it, people at the park will stop because there's little breeze and it's in the air flying around.
