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".

Attached is the new video of the Solus Comp UL, EC. Enjoy! Sorry I've been so out of touch, I'm at a chamber music festival for 8 weeks and have been super booked. This was supposed to be completed weeks ago. More of an uncut take with some pilot views in there, and working with little wind, gaining and using ground, etc. Something a little different than you'd see from us.

Enjoy the video and any feedback is appreciated! Smooth winds guys, hopefully you guys are flying more than I am. Cheers!

Devin.

Very nice, Devin ! Love the slow controlled tricking & a little flying in between. Is the 'eye-candy' Solus UL still available ? It sure would be nice to have one to match my standard Solus...

Nice flying. Devin. I'm starting to get used to my Solus UL. Every minute I fly it I'm improving my timing with the kite. This kite can float in the air and I'm taking advantage of it with tricks that they look like in slow motion.  Smiley

Beautiful kite. Awesome flying Devon. Great camera work John. So do all sous comp ul's fly like that or is there a bridal adjustment that needs to be made in order to fly in under 2 m phone wind.

No bridle mods, thats a stock kite straight from the bag. Just getting to know the kite and working with low winds for a long time expands your trick book/comfort level in low winds to expand on flight. It takes time but it's something thats well worth the movement and effort for haha. My favorite time to fly is .5mph-3mph, all day any day. Especially at dusk.
