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".

Skyburner Ocius UL video! Winds 2 to 6mph. The wind meter says 2 to 3 but it went up more as the night went on.

I hope you enjoy!

Very nice...

But four and a half minutes without a yo-yo,  wap do wap or anything rolled up.  Does it roll up okay, or is it a bit like other ULs in that respect?

Sweet video, you guys are sure getting good at those, some of the tightest framing I've seen that kept the kite mostly in frame.

I didn't notice the lack of rollups on the 2-3 times I ran it, in other reviews it's been stated that the UL will roll up even without weight but took more effort, maybe nobody had a nickle in their pocket to add the needed 5 grams?

Nice flying! I like that quick tip stab at the start of the video (its so fast, I assume thats what it is).

Hey guys, the Ocius will roll up with the 2pop technique.  I didn't do any because I'm not so great at them yet and don't want to make the kite look bad lol. It'll do anything I can but the 2pop's are still in the works. Weight is available if you mention it in an order. Personally I don't like mine with it if it can do everything without it. I just need to work on two pops.  Cheesy

Jon should send a demo kite around. I'll try the UL.
