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".

Neat!

So what is your opinion about the kite?
How did you like it compared to your other kites?
You seem to have connected well with it.
Cheers,

Thanks Ara Ararauna.

I heard so much about the 6th Sense and had the chance to try one. Thanks to Bill for letting me try his kite.  Smiley

It's a great kite Its perfect for my flying style. only had it for a couple of minutes where I manage to record this video.

This one was framed for lower winds conditions. Would like to try one framed like the original design. I don't know much about the technical aspects of the kite. I do know I liked it.

Every kite has a different way of flying. Bill did a great job making his kite. Only did some basic tricks but all of them were easy to perform. In my opinion its a keeper.

compared with my other kites (Duende 2.2 and ATM) it moves slower ( gives the kite an elegant look when doing tricks) maybe the Std. version with the heavier frame moves faster.

I've seen great videos with the 6th Sense doing the most radical moves. Now that I've tried one I would say its a great kite

The Double AVFFF is pretty tuff to complete in "soft" sand and two reps. is next to impossible.  Wink

I only did 1.5 turns and the people around me were impressed. when doing that I did slip when trying to walk back to unroll. I had a good cardio workout session there.

It was nice to meet Jorge in person. He showed me just how good 'my' 6th Sense is capable of flying, in the right hands! The winds were extremely light today (much lighter than yesterday) but my 6th UL was able to stay in the air with less effort than anything else I brought with me ...almost (ALMOST) as well as another flyer's Akuji SUL ...that being after I removed the upper spreader & swapped the 15g tail weight with a 6g one on my 6th. It gave me the motivation to put another full sized 6th at the top of my next build list  ...The next one as an SUL. I'll cut the sail weight down everywhere I can ...1.5oz ripstop poly LE pocket instead of 4 oz dacron,  lighter weight nose material, smaller center 'T' & TE reinforcements, smaller spreader connectors, ...and of course, lighter weight frame. I'm thinking maybe 2 PT LE rods, lower spreaders, & spine. Those changes should put my 6th at the top of my go-to list when nothing else will fly. Seriously!

When I'm able to complete that project, someone will get to buy my Akuji SUL on the swap meet! Wink
