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".

Nope nopity no. I don't HAVE to make things for family functions. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

The downside of having kitemaking skills is when your friends and neighbors ask if you can hem their pants, fix their curtains, or sew on a button.

Great thread - I've also got to change my original post and recommend the Echo.

I don't own one, but flew one at the last indoor festival I attended a few years ago and was super impressed.

The one downside of having the skill of sewing your own kites is having to make gifts for family occasions such as baby showers.(wink wink  Cheesy)

Ill 2nd the echo.  Ive got an original focus kites echo and love it for no wind days.  Another one that is over looked for indoor/no wind is the pro dancer sul but it's a bigger kite and not very trick friendly.  On the cheaper side you have the prism 4d or the inak.  Pro wrens are hard to find since they aren't making them anymore but I know the designer still has the templates and might be making some again from what he posted on FB not too long ago.  There is also a Prism 3d in the swap that is an older indoor kite.

I LOVE the PI from HQ. a good size to work with and get familiar with all of the movements needed...

Bigger indoor kites: usually slower...probably need more movement to counteract the weight of the kite....need a bigger area....

Smaller kite: faster, less movement..smaller areas.....lighter weight....usually more durable as the rods can be solid carbon....

Personally for dual line indoors i like the PI and the HQ Geenie....If i could find a reasonable Amazing (original mylarish one) that would be my next choice...
