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".

At long last, Santa Claus does fly, no wind gray day with rain. but up he goes.

Wind about 2 to 3 MPH

I was very happy is flew in that low of wind. I have it flying in 25 to 35 MPH.

I love flying NPW 5.

I can't wait on till the wind is up, I do have someone to take photos now. She is just learning.

Got to go enjoy

Thanks for the advice, I do like a kite with good pull, but am more of a speed freak...but am thinking it might be better to stick with the 1.6 or 2m one, less pull more speed? the 1.6 looks really zippy...big time fun and can fly in up to 8bft apparently, am worried I wont be able to solo launch cause I've heard that the 160 is pretty hard to launch, the bigger they get the easier they are. But the specs on the 200 say its max wind is 6bft whereas the 2.6 can take up to 7bft, but maybe i'd be biting off more than i can chew Wink

The Balors are pretty easy to launch, if you follow the instruction sheet. The bigger they are the more power they produce and the less speed they have. but even the big 9 footer, the 270 is pretty fast and can pull like a truck.
The launch is not anything like a Rev and only somewhat similar to a normal stunt kite.
Speedkites have their own method, which also differs from kite to kite Smiley

With Steve Hall's approval:

Either go to

and do a Product Search (left sidebar) on Calendar

or phone 714.536.3630 to place your order.

Previous Kite Party participants get a discount code

to knock off $2 on the price and get 1/2 price shipping (approx).

The calendars are printed on 100# semi-gloss stock and wire-wound

(not stapled). All profits toward Kite Party 13. Neither the Kite Connection

nor I will make any money on this.

You can see all the photos at the link below:

Sano arrived today and it was warm and sunny.  Embarrassed

Sorry Allen, I can only guarantee best effort here.  Fortunately my sewing is somewhat more accurate than weather patterns.  Please send a bottle of that warm sunshine. It will warm my numb fingers when fiddling with small knots on our cold grey snowy flying fields.

It's back to being dark and rainy. I blame the day of sunshine on shipping delays.

Hope you are feeling Strong!

Balor 270 von Level One

I have a HQ Delta Hawk which I use in high winds - rated to 47mph!  Smaller and a bit quicker but pulls well and a lot of fun.
Easy to launch, hard to break and quite cheap!

In the past, I was unable to link my pictures directly from my Google Drive, so I would reduce their file size and attach them to my Replies.  Due to memory requirements on this great Forum, the picture attachments in my older replies were removed.  With the help of Steve, I now can link the pictures stored in my Google Drive.  The linked pictures will be at the original resolution of the photographs.  I am working from my later posts and I am back to Reply 203.  Hope to complete this over this weekend.
