    I'm the tallest flyer on my squad now. I'm 5"3-5"4 but I'm the second lightest person...
    I think that thinner girls look better on top, not the 'larger' ones. Usually because the shorter girls have all the same muscle but all in one spot it just doesn't look as nice when they pull shapes...

    Tall flyers are gorgeous to see if they have good flexibility. They're harder to base in transitions and stuff, but not because they're heavier, just because they have more body / legs to catch and manipulate. Speaking from experience, smaller flyers, to me, generally seem heavier because they feel like, because they're small, they don't have to hold their weight.

    We always have a fun day where we let everyone have a chance to be a flyer, providing we have girls that can put them up. I had 2 cheerleaders that were 5'10" and we put them up. I have pics but I'm not sure how to put them in a reply yet :(.

    we have one very tall flyer at my gym and its awesome to watch her in the air! her scale and scorp are both beautiful because of the clean lines her legs make.

    i love tall flyers too! i always get them, haha, and last year my flyer was actually taller than me, and i'm not that short! i always get the feeling that they try so much harder because they are taller, at least the ones i've stunted with.

    today the tiniest flyer got switched to front spotting a girl twice the size as her. Also , I once back spotted a girl twice the size, weight, and height as me. It does not depend, depends on how much they pick there weight up.

    Tall flyers look great in partner stunts! Shorter flyers are great for pyramid elements! Short or Tall, they are all talented!

    I think that both tall and short flyers look good in the air as long as they can hit the stunt and look feirce :)
