buzz or 29er. probably  twin wiring not a good idea for trapeze novices.

I have owned 29er, RS800 and Musto Skiff.

29er is a great boat but is really a youth class not great for couple looking for socials.

RS800 - good for parties but the boat is very heavy and the mainsheet loads horrific.

Musto Skiff - obviously single handed so no crew problems and a great boat (I am biased of course).

All of the above seem a big step up from the Stratos but anyone with a bit of ambition should manage OK.

So you're looking for an introduction to trapezing and a good racing circuit?  And fireball's only been mentioned once? What about FD's, hornets etc.?  Can pick up a decent boat dirt cheap and they make for far better introductions to trapezing/racing than many more modern assymetrics.

Mosey on down to www.fastsail.org (not that i'm biased or anything )

A Buzz is a good first fast assymetric boat to learn to trapeze in, I myself started in one then a 29er and then a Spice (which is great for practising and learning twin wire!) and now by far the best an Int 14.

I think the 29er or MPS may be a bit ambitious for someone with previous experience only in flying fifteens and stratoses - it also depends on where you sail because there is a very large speed differenece between the stratos and the MPS/29er!

The Stratos is like a floating pontoon compared to the 29er - and without any trapezing experience the task of hoisting, balancing on your feet, goin out on the wire etc will definetly take a long and very wet time to master!
Any one in need of quality carbon fibre work (tillers etc) at decent prices!

maybe his mate put the trapeze kit on the stratos so he has learnt to trapeze but wants a faster boat?

If this is the case then the buzz or the iso may well be a sensible option as they are both single wire and pretty fast along with fairly good race associations (ok maybe not the best but they aint that bad) I have sailed both boats and both are nice fun fast boats to sail.
