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.

Hey Denny, Damn you're hitting the tricks well. Nice Cometes. How is the Strong different than the std? How high was that wind in the vid?

That's right. Done on the same field he's done his other vids on.
Don't know what's up with the quality though.

Hey Denny, how is the Strong different than the std? How high was that wind in the vid?

Although I don't think Denny can tell us, I am also wondering the same thing.

The few side shots show the kite losing almost ground, i.e. the pilot is not walking that much.  That leads me to believe not that much over 10mph.  After 10mph, you really do need to move forward for those tricks with any kite...heavy...strong...vented...whatever. 

Shall we call it strong standard wind?

 Thats basically a snap lazy followed by an insane cascade.  I also wonder how high the wind was.  Judging by the drift in the kite during most of the tricks he is tricking off to the side of the window (looked like at least 120 foot lines) so I'm guessing 15 mph+ winds.  The way he's smacking it around I going to guess its a p300-400/7pt  or a BD nitro frame and probably around 40g tail weight.  Wonder how close I am  Shocked

Hand wrapped by fairies and QA checked by unicorns.

They have magical properties. I recommend them hugely.

The tail weight is not much more then the std or std comp weigth. It should be round about 16...20 gr. , I think.

The Aerostuff rods are rebounding - return to the "neutral" postion - very quick. The ratio : stiffness / weight ist exelent.

Oh really ?  Wink

I love 'Stuff spars, admire the sheer quality of manufacture but I'm not at all sure why they seemingly make a kite better. I haven't found a way to measure it yet and the engineer in me is frustrated by that.

It probably is magic then.
