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".

I had this on my hard drive and decided to upload this to share after flying one for the first time after hearing so much about it. I hope it's ok since I think the kite is already no longer in production.  Undecided

WTF as usual, were what sums up my first impressions. I hope the video will at least shed some light of how it's been flown "well".

I demand a favour in exchange for another favour.

Somebody's gotta come up with a a video of the SL7 doing a Comete  Cheesy (No not the kind where you nose dive it and all the spreaders and standoffs pop out, I've already been there)

RonG does them one-handed on the SL7.

No joke.

Well seeing as you asked so nicely  Angry

I have absolutely no recollection where I got this from (it's probably a YT video I've converted to .WMV) and I am not going to get into an argument as to whether or not it truly is a Cométe.

The comete is probably one of the easiest tricks to do on an SL7.
IMO.
