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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

the issue is not with software, electronics, a complicated mechanical system, or material defect. at issue is a blemish which (should be) easily rendered in a photograph.

your 20+ years experience should have also familiarized you with the common internet adage; pics or it didn't happen.

I worked on verticle dives with pancake landings and then worked on timing to pancake prior to the ground (inches) and pop into fade.  By the end of the day I was doing verticle dives and pancake to fade 2-3 feet off the ground.  I even had one work out into rising fade which I transitioned into the Jacobs Ladder and just missed ending it but still flew away, final fade spun out.

I listened and I am not just fading from broken axles and I worked evenly on both sides of the window and around the center.  I am understanding forward movement and when and where it works.  I spent an hour or so just producing slack away from the edges.  Oh yea forgot to mention that my keeping my hands down to my sides gives me alot more line fore and aft movement and helps to get slack quicker than I can move my nailed down feet. ( I know it was what you were telling me)  You were right.  I concentrated on flying that way all day as to start a new habit and make it second nature.
Sounds like you're working on all the right things. After you get the fade try to hold and manage it for a while. Of course, providing the winds are in your favor. Maybe the Gemini will end up being your JL MONSTER.  Grin

Thanks John! I have a friend who might agree with your change! He's into the "Indian" color schemes!Haven't contacted him yet though.

I think bringing this issue up and not telling members the brand of the kite, is not helpful to the other members of the forum that want to avoid wasting time and money when they ruin into the same problem.
there has been no evidence provided to the community, only one sided testimony. so to attach a reputation to what so far is hearsay would be a disservice to the manufacturer, retailer, and the community.

Every forum I have been on, and I have been on plenty in the last 20+ years, has had posts from people having some issue that they are trying to resolve, with a product(s). There is no way that I can think of to "prove" any problem with any particular brand or product  to the readers of the forum. What is useful to forum members, is posts that explain a problem with a certain product, asking if anyone else has had a similar problem with that particular product  Not identifying the particular product that the OP is having a problem with  is of no use to anyone,  in my opinion. If the OP posted that he is having a problem with brand X, and two other people say they have  had the same problem, then everyone would learn that that the OP's problem is not an isolated instance.
