In 6m i do not think you have a lot of choice since a15 does unfortunattelly not exist below 9.

Bar is cheap and Chicken loop is heavy, fragile and obsolete. However if you replace the CL like i did, the bar is acceptable.

They have a limited depower which is the main cons of pansh. So for a beginner or high wind it should be limited to quite steady winds IMO. It seems that genesis can withstand quite strong winds but has a lack of agility (which is not really a problem for a beginner but maybe for advanced riders)

My 10m Pansh Aurora 2, Flew out of the box just fine, with a old but new Best bar, Could have just used that basic bar, but Modded the bar for safety. 1 Mod was the 5th total kill line that line is longer and also added a longer leader to that bridle section. 2nd Mod was line added about .5m across the steering lines, all foil bars have this, this line is for landing and for launching the kite at a anchor point/ice screw. I personally like the kite to sit on its ass when inflating and to hook in before launching, to hell with bags/snow on the lee edged.
All foil kite (Bars) need to be tweaked, to sit on the ground with steering line brakes employed.

As for flying the kite the 10m Aurora 2 will just pivot on a dime. Has really good depower, and will not expode when tanked into the ground.

No issue with 15m Aurora 2, flew out of the bag. Mods - took out fifth line used 62cm Ozone foil bar , massive depower and kite flies well 10-15kts ..below that need a high end foil kite i guess with more speed ...highly recommend Ozone bar for large foils ..worth the money

On big interest of pansh bars is their largest model of 65 cm , quite rare and useful above 12m2 on pansh kites IMO . 60 cm still works but less agile.

Ps : i removed tge 5th lines of all my pansh kite that now connects to any standard 4 even line bar .

I have one from someone who bought it as a first foilkite to see if I can get it to fly as he doesn't get it stable.

I have heard of another quite bad experience of an experienced foilkite user of Aeolus. Higher Aspect ratio's requires better fabrication tolerance and setting ... so A15 or Aurora are less prone to this problem vs Aeolus IMO.
