Got my Widow From Theresa today. Took it out for a spin and was really pleased. Great tricks, tight, fast rollups. Flies very well in the stoppers. Flat spin tricks are really flat and nice ( no suprise if you consider the designer) Fade is almost too easy. Pull from a pancake and watch. Kite has a bit of oversteer. Nothing profound, just there. Actually kind of cool and can be used to your advantage. build quality is great, especially for the price. Nice sew job. Great bag with a snap at the top and velcro on the mesh line pocket. The kite is great looking and very dramatic in the air. It takes a bit of wind to fly, so I would suggest bringing your ultralight to the field as well in case the wind drops. 4 or 5 mph is plenty for the kite. I had the wind pick up a bit and get fairly strong during my session. No shudder, no problem. I did the Lewis, wrapped axles, wap doo wap, etc. No fuss, the kite just did the tricks well and asked for more. I think its an honest value and worth anyone's time. I'm glad I bought it and it will see lots of airtime this summer.
