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 know you used to have a whole set of Talons... what would you say and how would you describe the differences between your Talon set and the TNT set that you currently fly?

But yes, I love the UL. It is the only kite that I currently have(well, at least that belongs to me)  Smiley (I am borrowing a WM)  but it does the trick and I love it!!  Smiley

In general I'd say the TNT's are a bit more precise and a bit less forgiving (except with the Taz) than the Talons are. The TNT std and UL both seem to fly a little lower than the Talon std and UL do. Then there's the Alphakites approach to high wind kites. I like it a lot better than venting.
