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".

My best outdoor was Santana's Incident at Neshabur (heavily edited for mostly the guitar and piano parts, but with the upbeat intro)

Indoor was a Joe Jackson instrumental called Loisida

For the last two years, we competed at the UK Nationals (dual-line pairs) to Kayak - Ruthless Queen. Over the winter, we worked on a new competition routine to Vangelis - Chariots of Fire.

Just a suggestion - you are ready ... as the kite comes down drop it into a fade and do a backspin or two and then continue as you wish ...

Just a thought.

For most of us, competing either never happened,

or it is in the past. While listening to a random string

of songs on the Mac, one of my odd competition songs

came up.

So, if you ever competed, please post your most

non-traditional song.

R-sky and Benson are at the top of their game in terms of sail shapes that gives quality flying?? It is to me not a coincidence that their new models come out at almost the same moment.

I'm interested. It's probably going to be expensive.

In general terms Tim's kites are pitched at an attractive price point against other European high end kites.  R-Sky probably represents the worst ratio of purchase price:build quality. although I believe their build quality has improved significantly over the last few years.

The weakness of the pound against the dollar must also work in your favour at the moment.

What intrigues me though is how different the new Benson / Goff kite is compared to the Unik (the Shooter and the SuperFly were released at pretty much the same time and followed a similar design vein).

Are we expecting this kite to be relatively easy to fly precisely?

Well, the Superfly flies surprisingly precisely.

When I concentrate it flies precisely where I want it to, when I don't it flies precisely where it feels like  Cry
and so does the Stranger Level 7! Smiley

Not quite!  When I concentrate the Level 7 flies precisely where it feels like  Huh
