so you develop and market the Zen, then tell us its better with another framePosted Image .
its like buying a Ford and being told its better with a BMW enginePosted Image

having said the above i love my ZEN
yesterday i realised the wind was low so had a 2 hour session at local park
the wind speed was that low it didn't even register on my high tech/highly accurate wind speed meter ( wet finger in the air )
set up Zen with 50lb x 50 ft lines , i'm learning to fly the Zen, its a different feel to 1.5 and B that i'm used to and it was very satisifying.
along side i set up my Tim Benson Innerspace ( i know 2 lines ) on 50lb x 75ft lines, at times i pumped the lines to keep airborne and the Zen kept up in same airspeed, the Innerspace is a definate low wind performer ( to my mind a good test/comparison ) both flew well.
I tried the Zen on 50lb x 100ft lines and struggled.
i realised the wind speed was building ( 2-4) according to my wind meter and switched to B for 20 min , and i think what i've learned flying the Zen helps and the B was fantastic.
