Love it ! not had much to compare it to as it was my first, but the smaller pulse 2's are tiny and light, making them ideal for smaller pilots. They dont aerotow well though, and have a lot of pitch pressure. They need an upper tow point but the zip opens from the front, making it difficult. I've managed to adapt mine to have a double opening zip to solve the problem.
The pulse 2 has quite a following in the US and elsewhere as being a superb wing with forgiving characteristics. If you find one, buy it.
Just flown bargain basement Pulse 2 , what a glorious glider! tremendous handling ,decent glide for class ,very easy to land not to mention super light to carry !
Great reviews and build quality/sail.
... However... Pulse 2 does not ( easily...) Short pack? Need to undo xtube bolt and remove pin? Pain!
