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".

Been flying with WidowMaker and Talon Std.. find that somehow it is easier to get into a fade with the WM, wonder if it is due to the 20g tail weight. Anyone shares the same experience?

All of Jon T's kites I've flown have been very good at the Fade Smiley

The Talon std is not very stable in the fade.  The UL is much better apparently.

I've spent two years flying the Talon and beating myself up how bad I was about fade related tricks.

A lot of it was me, but there are easier kites out there to learn to fade on.
