Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Yeah, Steve, this video made me think of you. Your TTUL is itching to see some sky. I think it's time to swap the VP out for a while and get the TrickTail Feeling again.  Smiley

The only earlier kite that was widely distributed was the Air Master (later called the AM). The Bad Boy/VP was the next step in evolution then the Wild Child and WindWhip/AerZero. Then the Warrior and Stiletto. Then a few oddballs towards the end.

What about compared to Peter's earlier kites?

Bill, thank You for passing that gorgeous kite on to me. It's my main squeeze below 2mph.

Rob, the VP is the same sail size and shape as the Bad Boy, but made to the lightest available standard of the era. I've had a range of them made between 1996 and 2004 with different sail materials and frames. This one is a 2000 sail, a 2002 bridle and a modern Zero-Air frame. Like all the Bad Boy series its an excellent ballet kite in that it is very responsive. These kites accelerate out of a stall better than just about anything. Very nice speed control. It's a low aspect design, so not really too good for pancake to fade type flipping. Once in a fade it likes to stay there unless you have lots of altitude to pancake or roll out. That's the main advantage the Vapor had over the other '90s SULs. It was a bit more floppy.

Hey Allen
How far apart is the vanishing point from Peters other kites?
I have flown a bad boy a bunch awhile back.... But it has been awhile....

So glad to see you got it back in the air,  after the swim in the ocean.

Absolutely Beautiful, and happy to see a PBSK getting some raves.

Couldn't have found a better home.

Good Winds,
Bill Haebler
