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".

Just curious how many others are flying these?



What are your thoughts?
I've only got a little over 12 hours on mine so far and I'm totally stoked with it.

In general, you will find that a person's "stokosity" with a kite is inversely proportional to how long s/he has been flying it.

1 hour = This is better than sex
10 hours = This is better than any of my other kites
100 hours = This is better than your kite
1000 hours = This is better than mowing the lawn

The Talon is a beautiful kite. Haven't flown one, but they all seem to look good.  Smiley

what kind of wind does the ul fly in and how does it stack up against other uls and/or sul?
I found messing with any colorizer is a black hole of time Cheesy
I think there is also something to be said for what they look like in the sunlight as well. All the pics of the talons i have seen have been pretty. Wonder if there is a "i wont make that color combo cuz it will be ugly" clause

No such clause exists (I can think of at least two kites that are a testament to that!  Cheesy).

Denny's spot-on with the 75ft lines thing. I fly on 100's and one day flew someone elses Talon UL on 80ft lines and for a while thought his kite was better, but it was just the lines.

No. You guys need to redefine your definition of 'Ugly'.**

I think the yellow and red could have been a Trident UL.

Are you using 50# or 90# lines at 75 feet?
