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".

I love the DS, but I'd take a Transfer xt.r or a SKD Seven over it. xt.r: final answer.

I'll say the kite that I've flown since 1998: HQ Zenith, re-framed in G-Force ULs.
It was the third kite that I bought from Dan.
Still need to do that on an AzizA skin........

Think I'd have to go with the DS.  For me, it wins over the Talon std for it's wider wind range.

I would probably say Talon STD.. if I had one... but the only kite I have that is worth flying (at least that I own) is the Talon UL... Just got it back last week after about 3 months without it..  Grin Grin Grin SSSOOOOO stoked!! So I would have to say Talon UL..

I will post a new video of me and my Talon as soon as I get a chance.

Cannot wait to see your new video and your fixed kite in particular.  Would like to give it a try next time we get together. D
