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".

* ae throws the Spectre XUL into the ring. It will fly easy in no wind and little winds outdoors, upto about 4mph and won't break aprt in 5-6mph guests, but its on the expensive side. And tricks is not something it was designed for.

It's always T-shirt weather for us in the midwest underneath the polar-fleece and parka.  Videos like this keep us warm.  Nice flying, looks like an awesome kite.  Cool

With some places that have gotten 7 feet of snow in a day, don't you feel bad for running around flying your kites this time of the year in shorts and a t-shirt??  Cheesy Cheesy

Just kidding! I'm just jealous!  Grin

Nice flying!

I have a jet stream speed. I think it was listed as having no top wind range. I had it out in 25-30mph winds with no issues. Launches easy enough.  I don't have any other speed kites to compare it to unless a micron counts.  Fast enough for me to play with, not big pull. I have looked at dedicated speeders like the Tiger but can't see investing in one for the limited time I could fly it. I have some foils and other kites for pulling power but don't get them out much anymore; my arms are long enough already:D
AE is the resident speed kite expert.  Love the vids of his scalpel.

Normally at night there is little wind to fly a stunt kite. That's why I like to keep various UL and SUL kites in my bag.

1 & 2. Steve Tapp Enigma UL and Standard.

Gosh!  I've never been anyone's best kite before. Flattered, humbled.  Thanks SKB!

There is the variable vented Enigma for bigger winds but Lil Psycho goes just as high I think. Revs are good.

Seriously let me know that the Sano meets expectations.  Must insure satisfaction.
After a week of storms off and on we're back to normal here and the Sano UL is a happy kite.

The Sano looks quite content there Allen.  Thanks for posting!  Am very curious what you think of the kite once you've had some time on her.
