I took out my zen again yesterday when the wind died down in the evening. I was flying on 50 foot lines and what I found really frustrating was that I couldn't find a setting on my leaders that gave me enough 'down' but flew normally with the leading edge up. I use 15" handles with 1.5s and 13" with B2s, so I wonder if longer handles might help me get the range I'm looking for.
Not that I fly it all that often. The chief use of the Zen for the Jersey Crew is that the wind tends to pick up right after you set one up. So it is a solution for low wind, but you never actually fly it - just leave it staked at the side of the flying grounds. It worked last night as well.
