If you want a kite to get you out there when everything else is scary this is the kite. I have never found it's upper limit. It absorbs gusts really well and has that famous Peter Lynn stability. At 155lbs it's low end is about 18mph on a larger flat board. The turing is very fast. I'm selling it because I bought a newer Venom 10 which has more low end to overlap with my Venom 16. Asking $325...kite only. PayPal accepted.
