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".

AlphaKites has added an SUL to the TNT line.

TNT - zero


Good thing Christmas is just around the corner.  Smiley

Looks excellent.  I just wish they'd ditch that TNT sail layout.

+1 - never really did much for me either.

Impressive SUL, demonstrated good drive since I didn't see a lot of pumping, along with a pretty wide range of tricks. Watching those 360's that was truly 0-2 mph air movement IMO.

Also a great video to demonstrate low to near zero wind flying technique, good shots of Mathias stepping back to generate some pressure when needed and immediately stepping forward again to regain his field every time the kite is flying down, plus using those 360's to regain field. Great lessons.

You'd prefer eyes?

Or spider legs?  Cheesy

I agree with the poster who said this looked like real 0-2mph stuff.  Indeed, I agree wholeheartedly.  You can see it plain as day when it's SUL wind.  That single side taz machine sequence is ridiculous.

Denny, I used to not mind the eyes.  I don't have any eyes anymore.  The craziest sail layout I own now is my original yellow Diablis.

I really like the TNTs, White with black reminds me of zebra stripes...definitely much better than spider legs. Could never see myself flying the spidey kites...looks way tacky cheap to me. (jmho)

I love the eyes though... Wink

That's what it looks like to me. I haven't got the kite yet. The picture is from Mathias.

Yes, Zero has only one stand-off - and it works great.

about the design:  i think is only a question of color selection...

my UL-Comp

That's sweet, I'd buy and fly them. I did try to buy some a few months back, but got no contact back from 'em via the web site. Ho-de-hum.
