The Nexus is a decent little stunt kite if you are on a tight budget, or just want a low cost starter kite. I have been
spoiled flying higher quality stunt kites but the Nexus flies quite well for costing only $50. One modification I would recommend
would be to remove the metal clips from the line set, where the lines connect to the kite's harness, and give it standard line
connections. This is the only stunt kite I've seen with these odd metal clips that add needless weight and have edges which
could possibly damage the kite's sail.. The metal clips add needless weight and could possibly damage the kite's sail.
Dimensions, specs & cost
The width of the Nexus is 5' 6", weights 6 oz. and is rated for 3-25 mph winds. I don't agree with that
wind rate. I would say it was more like 5-19 mph. The Nexus also comes with an 85', 100 pound line set. I purchased
mine from Gone With The Wind for $46.00.
The Nexus has good flight characteristics and handles well. Its frame is thin and has a visible flexibility that you will
notice in flight. Due to its small sail area, there is little pull, even in stronger winds.
