I got my first turn on a Zen recently and we didn't click with each other. It was in very light winds, less than 4km/h and it was set up on 50' x #90 with 13" handles. I had a go and it felt very very slow to respond. Once I changed to 15" handles it felt a lot better but still a little subdued.
Would #50 line be better? Perhaps a longer set?
It wasn't my first go on the Rev 1 sized kite, in fact loved West Australian's 1 with the SLE in. I have a bit of light wind skill and wasn't expecting it to handle like a 1.5. Could it just be a case of a lighter line set and taking it on a few dates to get to know her?

Just a hard working Sparkie trying to manage my addition. My wife blames JB for the glazed over look in my eye when I look out the window and see the russle in the trees. It was a hot December night that I saw a video of JB ripping it up down the beach on the B2.... the rest is just a haze.
