Well I recieved my kite today. I have never flown before and I think it was pretty awesome my self. I know it's not the best but I really didn't have many problems at all. For how big it is (about 12 and a half feet) it's really not that bad to learn on. I learned today in about less than 10 mille an hour winds. I am 6 foot 170 pounds and it was pulling pretty hard. It was kinda hard to keep it up sometimes, only because of the wind. I quickly learned how to work with the window and the power spot and what not. It was really fun though, I am offically obsessed and I will hope tomarrow is more blue skys. I would recomend this to any learner that's over 140 pounds. I still have A LOT more to learn about them but so far it was awesome!!

The bar wasn't to bad, the only thing the grips slide some but not hard to fix with masking tap under them. The strings seamed alright, the kite seamed fine, no problems at all. It did absolutly awesome in the gusts to about 12 mph. I think it will be awesome in higher winds. It was already better than I thought.
