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".

Basically a Rev with magic sticks and a nice design on the sail?  About $400 shipped to UK would be about 400GBP with import duties - around 55% more expensive than a JB 1.5, or 5x the cost of an Albatross sail.  I doubt you'd get 5x the enjoyment from flying one, but I'll keep my eyes open in case there's one going cheap on ebay  Wink

I have handed my Ozone to many interested on-lookers. It was well-flown before I got it (thanks, TMP !). The sail is the opposite of 'crispy'... it's like silk. It has never failed for me & all the people who have flown it in my care... I would say it's the toughest SUL that I have. Something about the tension in the setup makes it tougher than other SULs.

Hello Rob, thanks for the reply, sorry but I don't understand very well (my english is primitive...), are you talking about his strength? So you suggest it as SUL for beginners? Many thanks more.

Does anyone have any experience, thoughts or opinions between the 2 models of Nirvana? The NSE vs 3E
Any standout improvements on the 3Es? I'm ready to buy but am looking at the substantial cost difference between the two.
I've actually test flown both and at my skill level I did not "feel" any real difference.

It's a good job you don't live in the UK - you would need to wait until June  Cheesy

An awful lot of Rev snobbery being shown on here, in my view.  I've got genuine Revs (including a JB Pro Custom) and Albatross "copies", and the most recent Albatross versions are easily the equal of the mid-range Revs.  They are also only a third of the price here in the UK, and come with a spare rod and end caps (not that I've ever managed to break any).  Yes, the lines are not good, but you can buy a set of LPGs and still be under half the cost. The kites make good light wind fliers and are a very affordable entry for beginners.

I can't see anything wrong with buying a Chinese version for starters and learning to fly it: learning on a genuine Rev will NOT turn you into another JB any quicker!

Looking at all those foil kites - whereas you could be flying a Hugo. In some ways that is a stunt kite's dilemma ... the time it takes to fly it KOOL ... is a long one ... but a worthwhile one ... few really experienced it ... on the grass or on the sand. Keep doing those figure 8's ... LOL.

Warms my heart to see William Mark and Arrowcopter still in the game after all these years. Everyone here, seriously, go fly an Arrowcopter. Great fun on those low wind days.
