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 always had the green fade HQ Passion on my want list, but never got around to getting one.  Lips sealed


The Passion is one of my top 3 to fly. Its a really sweet kite. Its probably at this point my most modern kite. (although I do have a C21 I picked up from someone here). Not pictured are 3 more spinoffs, a NoNaMe, two flexi-foils, and another Hawaiian, and the C21. I really like the old school stuff. I have an MEFM on the way soon as well. Next year I am going to get a BMK Mamba.

Smeagol is refering to the sunset Spinoff, I reframed it in Skyshark P300. It is lighter then the fiberglass tubes, but mainly I like the appearance of the connectors, I even heat shrink covered the bungee knots.
 
But if youre refering to the Pasion, yes, its G-Force.

I also reframed the team hawaiin with G-Force LE's and P300 spreaders and spine. Lightened it up, flys in a bit lighter wind now.

Its a little stiffer and lighter, so the wind range came down a little bit. But over all still flys like a Spinoff.  Smiley
