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".

Hi guys!

I made a post few days ago seeking some advice for a new kite and ive narrowed it down to these 3!

What i want out of the kite in order is:

-Usable in fairly high winds as well as low winds
-Ability to do simple stunts
-Not too slow

Vote away guys! I'm leaning towards the mirage xl but will see :-) if there's another that should be in list and matches what i want please let me know! My price range is no more than 300 really.

Also if anyone has 1st hand experience with any of these please share :-)

Do NOT get the XXL.

I don't think it fits all of your criteria.

Personally, i don''t like the mirage or the fazer much. The topas it is for me, it flies much rounder, smoother, and more stable. It is generally the more balanced kite then the others. Plus the 3.0 has a pretty wide wind range.
