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".

May have more success with a sane bridle.  Cool Just move the TP out a few inches Wink  Would still need fast reflexes as Lil Psycho is pretty zippy in big winds.

Oooooh, team fly Psychos!  Grin
I remember trying that once.... It was hideous..... And we never spoke of it again......

I will stick to team flying single line kites Wink
Why would you put a weight on a psycho?HuhHuh?

For those that asked, here is the vented with the vent covers added



The covers open in 1/3rd increments and add 1.5 oz to the Std kite.  When the winds are in the teens I'll often pull this out so the vents are available if needed and the little extra weight helps to toss the kite around in bigger winds.  While the variable vented does not replace the Std model, it does overlap quite a bit.  If I could only have two kites on that remote deserted desert island, I'd take the UL and a variable vented for the broad wind range.

Just a reminder... if you don't know what the get for the kitemaker on your shopping list, Fly Market has gift certificates. They can be e-mailed to you or whoever you want, so they'll arrive in time for Christmas morning. Ho ho ho and all that stuff.

Took a break this morning from my kite workshop to play with some of my recent Birds of Prey (BOP) in my front yard.  Temperature was 20 degrees F, light winds at 0 to 3 mph and light snow flurries.  Great weather to get you in the Holiday Spirit!  Had a blast flying the BOP 12, the BOP 36 made with Cuben, and the BOP 36 made with PC31.  Came in after 30 minutes only because of the cold on my fingers.  Typed this post while the feeling comes back in my fingers.  Cheesy  Back to the workshop to help the Elves finish the BOPs for other glider enthusiasts.  Grin

Yours in kiting,

Doug
