Perfectly designed, all-day comfort, really light weight. I have used it for hike and fly, thermalling, XC and all sorts of mucking about. Its a fabulous harness. Although light it feels strong and safe. I love the split leg arrangement with such a simple clip in design. It is as reactive as you like, tighten the strap to fall asleep, or loosen it off to throw the glider around. It's very easy on the ground and and so easy to get into after launch. Agreed, it is expensive, but it is definitely worth it....


MacPara Eden 6

Mac Para Eden 6-26
(The magical flying carpet)
Pilot: Ziad Bassil

There are many gliders popping out each week/month in every category. It’s very rare to find a flaw in today’s gliders. As a reviewer I always search for those tiny flaws if occurred… But it’s becoming more and more difficult!

Companies are doing their best to give us the best possible and magical flying carpets.

Here’s one…

After test flying Mac Para EN-D, The Icon, here is the Eden 6 in size 26 for a test flight.
I flew the Eden 26 from 93 to 98 all up.
Take off is quite straightforward for a B, despite the high aspect ratio of 5.9, the Eden 6 inflates as a block and very easy without any delays or even shooting forward.
I had some nice flying conditions for three days and I was lucky to fly next to High end B’s all that time in order to feel and see the differences.

What does it feel in the air?

The Eden 6 is a very different glider from the 5th version.
The Eden 6 is tuned for performance flying with an efficient flat turning radius and a nose that searches for thermals rather than bumping into them.

The brake pressure is moderate with a linear response and the Eden 6 could be steered around 35 cm of travel.
The Eden 6 is a fairly agile wing trimmed toward an efficient turn rather than a diving turn.
To be more precise, I think the Eden 6 agility is well balanced between a gentle fun side, and an efficient XC use.
The Eden 6 26 could be flown easily at 90 but I found out that flying it at +75 % of its weight range is optimal (95-96)

Eden6 - Ziad
Climbing ability:

The Eden 6 has similar climbing capability in weak lifts as the Eden 5, which was very good. In stronger lifts the Eden 6 dig through those thermals more efficiently for a better climb.

Gliding power:

Flying the Eden 6 26 in the company of the Swing Nyos M, the Mentor 4 S and the Rook 2 M showed me after many attempts a superb glide angle for the Eden 6 putting it right on top next to the best one in this category!
The gliding at top speed is fully usable and also very competitive like you would expect from the best B’s out there!
The Eden 6 26 at 96 all up has a fast trim speed.
The speed bar pressure is moderate and the gain in speed is ±15 km/h.

Eden6 - Ziad
What are the benefits and differences (Eden 6 over the Eden 5?)?

-Eden 6 needs slightly more active piloting -Glide at trim and at top speed is well improved!
-Efficiency in head wind glides
-Speed

The Eden 6 is as comfortable to fly as the Rush 4.
Big ears are stable and easy. They reopen smoothly by themselves.
Spiraling down is efficient but the pilot must get out hyper smoothly…to prevent a tuck on surges.

Eden6 - Ziad
Conclusion:

The Eden 6 is a new breed of Mac Para gliders. There’s something different in the making.
The glide angle is the best you can get .The climb rate is very good! The handling is pleasurable. The Eden 6 is fast!
For sure, it’s a small step over the Eden 5 in piloting
but ok for an experienced B pilot looking inside the high B category!
There’s indeed something new over here…...
