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.

What works best for me is first sliding the standoff connector on the LS as far outboard as wind conditions will allow. 

For SUL flying with the standoffs set inboard, go with the two-pop method. 

I would think that more weight would help, but I've never tried it.

The heavier weight is the standard SS weight of 14 grams..................I'm assuming the SSl is around ten grams or so....it is found in the tail fitting tee.......so you have the no weight tee, I'm assuming? or possibly the kite has been modified.......which would not be cool IMO.
Sanos are great fliers.

The tail weight in the Sano SSL is 9grams.  I fly with the weight in unless I am trying to fly in the lightest of winds.  I usually have mine setup with the shape shifter in the middle to slightly out toward the tips.

I have the best (most consistent) results doing a roll-up by rolling out of a fade and doing an exaggerated pop and slack.   Think Jacobs ladder type move but bigger pop so it rotates all the way through the turtle and rolls up.  This works well when the wind is up and the kite has lots of drive.  Otherwise the two-pop method like Texanpilot stated will work.

For me the Sanos are a real light touch kite.  Too much input and momentum is quickly lost and the tricks look ugly.

Good luck,
jim

I've tried a Talon, and it's much different in the roll-up department: much faster.

You have to give the Sano more time and more slack, especially the SSL.
