Zenith does not really imply anything negative, and provided it is used and explained truthfully and honestly, there should be no hassle with using that term, IMO.
I prefer the term DEATH ZONE, because it gets attention! :-) People in the trade seem to have an allergy to that term though, but I think their fears are unfounded. The model of a wind window in my shop is labelled the DEATH ZONE, and I don't intend to change it!
IN my experience it is better to be honest with people right from their first enquiry, too many traders are sacrificing their integrity, for $$$ right now IMO!
There are too many brands, way too many people trying to sell those brands, too much hype, too much BS, too much big ego and attention seeking too.
It will sort itself out over the next couple of years, lets hope no too many more people die from preventable causes in the meantime.
Summer finally hit about 2 weeks ago, winds have been good for some time though. Water is a balmy 22c and the temp is rarely below 20 either! Thanks for thje wishes, I hope you have a great christmas and smooth windy new year too! :-)

Yet, Zenith was a 'place of rest' only a couple of years ago...'auto-zenith' was a big
selling feature of ARC's over blimps...and zenith is where you see lots of kites in really
crowded kite venues. Perhaps if along with terms like Power Zone we coin Death Zone
to develop a verbal, intuitive warning.
