Anyone have any suggestions or experience with the I-nak? great little kite,  but does it take a little weight in the tips to trick a little better?  It is a very "shallow kite", and to get it to fade is very difficult.  Indoor or 0 wind obviously.

It is an indoor kite, more for ballet than tricks.

Great kite. Fades are harder, but everything else is there in an indoor kite.
My highest recommendation for an indoor kite.

adding on what RX said, everything he described is at it's finest for an indoor kite.
Throws and Catches are very easy also.

Absolutely, very graceful.  Have just been trying to get it to fade.  I have seen some indoor comps with fades.

My first suggestion is to contact its designer - Jon Trennepohl at Skyburner  He's been very helpful to me over the years.

Second, I don't have the I-Nak but have its big brother the Nik Nak.  Try learning the fade from the ground with a fade launch.  Also make sure you are not using straps; this kite requires a very light touch.  I usually fly just holding onto the dacron line leaders.
