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".

After building a Sixth Sense sul and basicly learning to fly an sul i am doubting the amount of the (in the tail).

The kite is flying perfect in very low winds, (multi)slots,(half)axels and half axelcascades are easy. 540's and  tazmachines are starting to come Grin. Also lazy susan's and cascascades are starting to come.

The 'problem' is that 2 pop yoyo's are relatively easy but unrolling isn't. The kite doesn't get enough momentun to start rolling. Also with 540's and taz's the kite has  barely enough momentun to make it..

What i was  thinking was a slightly heavyer frame. At the moment it has a 2pt spine, 2p/p100 leading egde's, 3pt lower and 5mm uppper spreader. and 9 grams tailweight

suggestions  are welcome Cheesy
regards,
chris

For me I would try to play around with the bridle and test. Maybe slot in about 10 cm of 6mm hollow carbon at the lower leading edge,Test.
If too much cut away till you achieve what you looking for.

You're welcome, but be sure you use end nocks that you could slide in the 6mm. I dab a little hot glue on 6mm and Orings to prevent the hollow 6mm from sliding in to your leading edge.
