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".

Headed to New York as i type(wifes driving).

Anybody in the Lake George area know of a good place to fly and/or want to meet up this week?

I think we will be in the south west corner of the lake. I believe Prospect Mountain is close by and may be a flying possibility.

Thanks

So, for those in the market for a pair, you had better get them now from AWOC while he has a good supply, because I am not making anymore flight straps.

Now where have I heard that before?   Wink

It was watching you fly and how you did things that I have been looking for in my flying.  Smooth fluid transitions is my aim now that I have seen you do it. 
I have made a few videos of myself flying. I make them to see what needs to be improved or how I might accomplish improvement. I never have recognized smooth fluid transitions. I have always noticed room for lots of improvement, but thanks for the compliment.

I guess I learn better in person than trying to undertand instruction in a video.
Yes, you already have learned faster with someone on hand to help. We're going to get you to learn all the tricks I can do, which isn't a bunch, but it will get you going. What the heck I like Ventura anyway, so a few trips your way will be nothing but fun & sun. My wife likes the area too and that always helps.

You've created a monster....
Hopefully a Trick Monster.

From the Benson site: Wind:    3-18mph
I liked it best from about 5-10 mph.

That whole kite is long. That's why it's so stable.

Low aspect ratio. Great kite. Wonderful 540s.

The longer the keel, the more stable the kite.

I'm sure there are exceptions, but that's it in a nutshell.


Here's a big exception:

The Prophecy has almost no "tail" and it's very stable. Too stable, maybe.
