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".

Mario,

I had a similar experience and made a few tweaks that made the kite work much better for me, although many love it stock. 

I will have to measure and post, which I'll do later tonight.  I've been wondering what sorts of tweaks others have been trying out as well. 

In the end, I really like the kite now.  As you noticed, the JL takes a bit more tending it him due to the large sail size - it just takes longer to rotate and flip!  Smiley

The low wind range is quite good - the large sail really works there.


Very nice color combo Mario!  Wink

I had the same observations and experience with my full size 6th. I found it's low-wind range to be exceptional. The ONLY modification I did was to tweak the bridle settings. The kite does some very nice slow JLs but does take a little more tending.
