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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

I agree Mike. I think the Talons are great looking kites. The Talon Vented is in my eyes probably the best looking kite available but like I say that is just my opinion. This is the rest of the set that the SUL will be joining.

Look at the fantastic creations of Zhang Tianwei, Chinese Kite maker, who struggle to keep his art, traditions and culture alive.

Absolutely amazing Kites !

It's sad to see so many artisans who know that their vast knowledge will be lost when they will be gone.

Thanks for the advice, Bill.  I'd intended to a practice sail just to learn the techniques and work out the "fiddly bits" before committing to the real thing.  I'm also a novice to the sewing machine, but I can always enlist my wife if my seams aren't straight enough!

My pleasure! You'll find that the main stitch ....a 3-step zig-zag which I use for 98% 0f the kite ...is very forgiving. The only places I use a straight stitch are the US rub patch, center 'T' reinforcement patch, TE reinforcement patch around the stand-0ffs, and sewing on the nose of the kite!

Good luck and have fun!

Very nice looking kite. The Talon has a great panel layout, very versatile.

For the next week, all in-stock red, white and blue fabric is marked down 20-25%. Thinking about building a patriotic kite or banner? Now's the time to stock up.
