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".

about my list of kites:

1. Sixth Sense, Magnet, SkyKiller UL, P3, Enigma VTD, Hugo, NRG, Transfer X.tr VV, Talon Vent, Essence, Flashlight, Seven

2. the Essence was never mine  Grin

I always liked the Flashlight and that one is gorgeous.  I think trick-wise and for its style that kite was ahead of its time.  I was shocked with how much that I could do with it.

Do you still have that vented Benson or is it a Talon I'm still learning.  All I know is its the kite that has a lot of holes near the center. 

If so, and if you ever want to sell it pm me please. That thing is pretty. ....

let me see what i can find...


























1. who can name them all?
2. i own(ed) all but one, which one?

i liked this, let's do this next month with another color Smiley

Oh yes, my Talons from Jest of Eve!
It was a GREAT looking set: SUL-UL-STD-Vent:



I sold them all... The SUL (sail) alone and the other three as set.

Movie? https://vimeo.com/14458963


Of course my old Talons were the inspiration for my Enigmaset:

So, that took you more than half an hour.  Grin

Quad UL with P100 frame weighs 6.3 oz.  A bit wider mesh and leech line.  I like it.
