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".

Nice idea Sugarbaker! I was planning to build an Essence about 2 years ago, but ended up with a Sixth Sence finaly.
I have to search for my sketches, as I was looking for the design as well. I will take part in this fun for sure! Smiley
Just one question - what is the timeline? when do you close the time for entries?

Best,

Paweł

A $150 budget for the first kite is a good budget. However, be sure to save for the many kites that will follow.....
The Premier Widow NG looks like a great kite, and I wish I would have bought one of those for my first kite.

The more I fly the Wolf NG the more things I discover from it.  Smiley specially been a 3/4th size kite.

Maybe the "NG" stands for New Generation Tricks

Yo-Fades is one of those tricks that not many kites can do it.   Shocked  Normally I've seen high end kites do it.    Shocked

If this is what the Wolf can do. Imagine what the Sky Burner Aura can do.  Smiley

just to warn you now....

you will have multiple kites at minimum for different wind speeds.  Soon you will know the location of every flag in a 20mile radius. Based on those flags, you will know which kite to fly that day.

when you cant fly your baby because the wind is too low, you will buy an SUL just so you can fly.  When the wind is 20+ you may discover a full vent Rev gets you out flying with maximum control.

see ya on the field!

I think the widow is a great deal! it is the brother from another mother (same Father)of the famed Widowmaker.

I really enjoyed my Prism Zephyr for light wind(3+) tricking.

My goto kite right now is Lams ATM.

One thing to remember is not to start with a Sul or some ULs.  They have less mass and are more difficult to trick because of it.  I love my Ocius SUL for 1mph days! I just zoom around, try a trick and then walk out to untangle the tip wraps.  I have not mastered the gentle persuasion of tricking SULs.

Good winds to ya!

My budget is roughly 150$, but I definitely want something that I won't out grow in a matter of seasons.

If you ever make it to the Saginaw area look me up. I am presently teaching a sport kite flying class at SVSU.

Not every stunt kite can do tricks.

I have tried many types of kites some are better than others. and normally the best ones are the the ones with high price tags. Sad

I just added a Widow NG kite in my collection.

It can do all types of tricks. very strong Carbon fiber frame. Great wind range.

The kite performs very well compared with the higher price competitors.  Smiley

Its made by Premier Kites.


Hope this helps you
Here is a video of me flying it:
