I just flew a 2008 Eclipse 6m Nano in with constent winds of 20mph with gusts of 35-40mph. It was the best kite i have ever flown. I am 5'7 and weigh 120 lbs and i was able to hold down that kite with no problem because of all the depower but at the same time a person weighing 170 lbs was just as powered. That kite will jump 25ft with no problem and stay in the air for such a long time you feel like you will never come down (unless you would like to). I could do a powered kite loop and get a feather soft landing. The bar pressure was perfect i could feel right where the kite was but with out getting my arms tired. You could ride down a wave with no power or shoot down the face with extreme power. I would recommend this kite for any rider of any weight.

Well done Brandon, short and to the point. although at 5'7'' and that weight, do you have to be careful not to fall through the center hole in the bar :thumb:
