    • Since I got my Tekken SUL my Zephyr has been a bit neglected. When first flying it all the negative things I'd read about it not being a true UL but more a light standard seemed true. As Iv'e gotten better the kites usable low range has dropped to  2 to 3 mph. Winds were roller coasting today from 0 to the highest  measured at 16 mph. Stayed on the Z with stock line set. Thought about getting lighter spreaders but haven't and probably won't because of my other kites. I've flown my Tekken in 15 mph plus gusts on 50# lines but I'm heading to the edge in a hurry. Close in size to the Z but the pull is a lot lighter. Think the Z  or Pro Dancer SUL could break the 50s at 8 to 10. For me the Z has been a very methodical learning process. No great epiphanies just very rewarding as I progress. For example today I did a combo sequence I'd never done before. What The, into Oh No,directly to the LOOK OUT ending on the WOW Lucky,Lucky,Lucky. Great fun.Changing the frame just a little can change a kite for the bad more often than for the good I've heard. BUT being a poor student it couldn't hurt to much to try. Sky Shark P200 spine , lighter spreaders and a 50#  x 80' Shanti line set might get you what you're looking for. I wouldn't go any lighter on the spine because of the weight of the rest of the kite and balance issues .That opinion is from reading not experience. I've got LPG 50#x 120' but they say Shanti is thinner, lighter and stronger. Shanti will be my next 50# x 80' and then I'll have more nerve to fly the Z on 50s. Should be even better from 3 mph down. If the frame mods don't work out for you build a kite that has the same spine and spreader specs or a little smaller.Spent some of my kite fund recently buying a few older kites. Thought about selling the Z quite a bit to fund a boutique UL. Glad I haven't and don't think I will any time soon if ever. Kite demands patience and a easy touch from me below 4. Taken awhile to learn that but well worth the effort.
    • smaller is faster but also less pull and need a bit more wind to fly. 
    • Andy at Ocean Shores Kites has some PC20 Icarex.  But it is very spendy.  The least expensive Icarex I have found is Emma Kites.  But I’ve yet to order any.  
    • Goodwinds Composites in MT Vernon WA. Paul DeBakker works there and he's a master flier and designer.Helping you with the Wind Cheater might get those folks a bit excited.You could be a test monkey for their new tubes on a older design.Looked at Kitebuilders and GWTW briefly but no luck. I don't go to kitebuilders  much (for now). I get lost and lose focus on what I need to be learning now(flying). Post your question on both of those sites too. My bet is it's not that long of a shot. I seem to be reading more about older kites lately than new ones. Starting to get a glimmer of the how and why some things have changed while others not so much. Keep us posted. I'll be following with much interest.
