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".

I may have some clues to help identify the builder of this kite. I just picked up a batch of kites on ebay, and there were two Phantom kites included. Both came in bags with 'Cheetah by Wind Toys' tags sewn into them, and the same 'Made in USA' labels sewn into the kites. The bags are definitely not for the Cheetah, the Phantoms fit in them full length.

Allen it is comforting when unusual phenomena have logical explanations.  Seriously let me know that the Sano meets expectations.  Must insure satisfaction.

Mr Thief if you truly feel there is a huge empty spot in your life, we could talk.

"Pandora" is packaged and will enter the postal system tomorrow.  If you encounter this innocuous looking container, do not open, back away slowly and call the local weather authorities.  Wax those skis Frazer Smiley

The better a kite flies in light wind, the worse it will be at tricks, to an extent.

Yoyo (pitch) tricks are difficult on light wind kites.

Many kites defined as tricky SULs are really the weight of a UL or light standard.

If you are content doing spin tricks (axels, 540s, etc) a good SUL or light UL will suffice.

The Shadow is listed as a UL but it is almost an SUL and surprisingly tricky.

The Amazing is another excellent UL/SUL.

I am not familiar with the ones you have listed.

Good luck.

Agreed, SKB has a real eye for kite pics as does John.  The water pics are especially serene.  Cool

Jim, your flying is quite accomplished, crisp, controlled.  Enjoy the vids. Smiley

The weather is problematic Jim.  Steve lives north of us on the map.  We need to move.  Cheesy

SKB,

With photography like that we need no video! That panel layout really grabs a person.

Oh, and send some of that warmer weather up north when you get a chance.

Jim

Hi,
am looking for a good kite to try indoor flying and something that I can also take out on windless days, do want it to be trickable.. Any advice? Was looking at Level one's range of ULs and the echo/whisp from ITW

You might also look into some of the designs by Christoph Fokken's Spiderkites.

Also  worth looking at is the new HQ 'Whizz' which is listed as 'the fastest kite in the HQ range'.



Kites like the Delta Hawk, Batkite and Whizz will launch pretty much like any other dual line kite. Proper speed kites do need a bit of experience and practice to get into air easily.
