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".

BoT, Outerspace, Gemini, Exile, Mongoose, Opium, Frenezy, Eclipse

+1 on the BMKs, one reason I like them so much.  Just don't equate forgiving, easy and fun to fly with less than capable performance.  Grin

Would the SL7 be on the most unforgiving side of the spectrum?  Tongue

Going back to a SL7 after flying kites like the Nirvana it doesn't feel that weird anymore. In fact it is quite tolerant of sloppy inputs.

I would say that the SL7 is not exactly forgiving....it MIGHT not do anything like you expect it to!!! I would be flying along and then it would do its circular paper airplane impersonation!
I imagine that if you put more time in on tit flying wise and tuning wise than you can learn more about what to expect.....i never did.....

No forgiving would not be the word i would use with the sl7, unexpected would suit it better or strong willed to do what IT wanted. I had 2, i was convinced that i had gotten to be a better flier and would appreciate it better on the second one, nope. I felt for time invested in flying it i could be flying something that LISTENED to what i told it.

And yes i didn't miss it from Thief's post.....   insert "tit flying wise" joke here

and a little more on topic...forgiving kites seem somewhat wind dependant; in smooth wind alot of kites are forgiving.  Plus the more you fly a kite the more forgiving it becomes. Like the deepsace std and ul

This thread has been interesting to me for sure. I have an Exile, WM, and a DS in my bag, but for ME the Silver Fox is the most forgiving of the bunch. Just another thread that proves how different everything is to each flyer. I am glad I have about 1/3rd of the most forgiving kites that were mentioned, because I NEED them. Thanks to all.

Do we fly some kites more because they are more forgiving to our inputs or do they seem more forgiving because we fly them more and know them best? Probably a combination....

No mention of the Sea Devil. I did a lot of learning on my Sea Devils, they're nuetral handling, and I think forgiving of slop. I had some good learning on the Exiles, also, and the Four Winds Nebulas were easy to fly, too.
The QPro on the other hand is one of the least forgiving kites that I have.
