quite a number mentioned Talon. Is it any good?

Quite possibly the best freestyle kite on the market.  The build quality and flight characteristics for the price is unmatched.  The only other kite to rival it is the Deep Space, but the Talon beats it out by a small margin.

HOw about the Talon UL?

Tricky... tricky to convince my other half...  Angry

I do wonder, say you have the WM or Nirvana, plus the Talon/Deepspace UL. That means you have some of the very best Std AND UL kite in the market already.. where is the need to buy more and more kites? With the Std and UL, you probably covered the wind range that is available 99.9% of the time.

If only my other half agrees to your statement : as far as kites are concerned.

MY favorite kite is easily my Nirvana. I have learned so much with that kite since I bought it, it loves to be in a fade and locks in quickly for me when I try to get into said fade.
The Nirvana seems to have good range as well, I have flown it in 3-4mph winds (not well mind you) and as high as a gusty 15mph.

I recently received a Gemini, which I really need some time with, I think it will become a close second.

For light wind, I have only one UL, a SF 2.5 UL which works well. I really didn't like this kite last year, but now after learning more on the Nirvana, I can do so much more on the SF its crazy.

For high wind, definitely my Sea Devil Mid Vent, again still getting used to it, but flew it today in 14mph wind and it was awesome. Not many tricks to be had at that speed, but there was an eerie howling coming from the kite which I am assuming is the vents. Never heard it on any of my other kites.

Cheers,
Sean

Right now I'm flying the Talon std. and Diablis the most. I just got the Talon UL so that is getting time when the wind is right. The Nirvana will always be in my top five along with my Vipers. I still enjoy flying the Vipers, especially the UL.

Seconded. Like to mention the Ophidion UL, which reaches into the SUL range, my favourite when the Talon UL fails. And of course the Vendetta UL. ------------- BTW how you getting on with the K2?

The K2 is an awesome kite, in fact I might demo mine out after everyone stops sending me their stuff to modify/fix/demo so I can get some more time on it.

In fact this Wednesday I should get time on Master Sturdy's Saber 2!

My all time favorite has always been a Prism Eclipse or Fanatic.
