I bought this kite for a 40 yr old friend, (120 lbs?) who had not flown a kite since she was maybe 12. Of course, kites were simple then - and pretty boring. I was concerned the SnapShot 1.9 would be too much pull, but it was perfect on a moderately windy day. There was enough pull, it was both a work-out, and an adrenaline rush for her, but she quickly became comfortable with it and was doing figure-eights in the power zone and leaning back with a big smile. Awww! The Fountain of youth!

Very professional as i was a little scared of an on-line purchase. Kites came fast, and very happy!
