My two favorite kites. The Deep Space is a bit smaller and a little faster. It seems to me to be a bit less tolerant of bumpy wind than the Talon. I think the Talon does nicer flat spin stuff. To me the Talon seems a bit more relaxed and the DS a bit more edgy. They're both great kites for sure but if I could only have one it would be the Talon.

Lemme help you out here.



Seriously... you can't really finesse this choice. Pick the pretty one, buy it then go fly it.

The color of your choice for under $300 delivered. Can't beat that with a stick.  Cheesy

You can get some inspiration from the "media" tab on Mark's site. Lots of nice looking Talons there.  Wink

Ignore everything that's not black, white or a shade in between. Acccent with 1 colour of choice (red being that choice - obviously) and you'll be down to just a couple of days tinkering.

I've had Two colorizer screen shots for a Talon UL sitting on my desk top for months now. Just can't seem to pull the trigger just yet.

I liked the Talon std that a forum member was kind enough to let me have a go on, just not quite as much as the DS.

The Talon UL was a different story, again, Thank You to the same forum member.

The UL is one of those kites that comes along once in a while: A true masterpiece.

I will have one. Oh Yes I Will.
