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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Back in the day, the Box of Tricks was very forgiving. Probably why I spent countless hours on it.

See ya,

Fearless for me.  Of course, the better that you do it, the better it looks.  Smiley   

You don't get buttery smoothness with badly timed and executed inputs with any kite I imagine. 

The Fearless gives you extra time and a nice margin of error to get the job done however.  It's one of the reasons I recommend the kite - you get rewarded for getting reasonably close and then you keep refining until its super smooth. At that point, you can do it on most any kite.   This speeds up the learning process (at least it has for me).

I'd say the Widow Maker is the most forgiving kite I've flown.

Gemini.  I flew the original up until a week ago and never got it into something it couldn't get itself out of and flailing your hands about always resulted in something interesting (though not always identifiable or repeatable).

I concur.......pretty much nothing you can do too wrong.......especially if you're a flailer like myself.

#1 Widowmaker
#2 Exile

Both sort of have an intuition of what you wanted and do their best to give it to you.
