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".

Way underrated.....

Nice balance of speed and power.... no launch quirks.

Well I got the Zero G. Just got back from flying it with Jon at Oxnard. This thing was a blast. Flew it some in the morning with little to no wind. Then in the afternoon with a breeze of maybe 3-4 mph. It took a few tries to get her to launch but got the feeling pretty quick. I really like how you can control it in flight. This is a great fit to my small kite collection. (for now) It is a great kite when not flying my duel lines.
 I would like to thank those who posted with suggestions.

If you are after raw speed, the 160 is the way to go, but yes it is more difficult to launch, since it is smaller, it reacts faster, skids faster. Best is to practice  in low winds and work your way up while you gain confidence.

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
