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".

Can someone explain what "radical" means in this context?

It is not a precision kite.  Grin Grin

Picture of my Talon UL, front and back.....

Just got mine 2 days ago, and just canīt get enough flying it. Which today resulted in me flying it, in a bit high winds.... 5mph lows, average 9,5mph and gusts of several minutes going up to 17-18 mph. The strongest during the session was way over 20 mph, good fortune that the Talon UL was staked down, and I drinking coffee and eating a ham-sandwich when that monster roared. Phew....

But the point of the above : I flew my Talon UL today in windspeeds from 4,5 to 16-17 miles pr hour, and it stood up to it. I am not proud of it, and I wonīt do it again. I would say that above 10mph, I would take out another kite, and below 8 is where the Talon UL belongs. If I had a weather-controlling-device, I would set it to a steady 3-6mph, when I felt like flying my Talon UL.

Hope the above makes some form of sense, if not, say so, and I will try to clarify.
