Trick kiting is more than just flying left and right across the sky. To have a good trick kite, we need a kite that can shake off its wind pressure quickly; to allow us to execute the desired trick. On the other hand, we need a trick kite that can build up the pressure quite fast after a trick. To make this possible, we must be able to adapt the kite to the wind circumstances - partly by adapting the bridle and tail weight, partly by taking another kite model.

Roughly, these are the differences between the various overlapping trick kite models.The reason for the weights is that trick kites need to have some mass to do all the rotations needed in today's tricks.
