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".

Nice flying!, you can tell the large wing span in the way it kinda hangs for a bit in the rotations. but for the size it looks very trick happy.

thanks for sharing.

The wind range is more about the upper end.

If the wind is over about 8 mph, you will probably be flying
the kite, but not tricking it without running. That is a lot of
sail.

In my less capable hands, I was giving inputs too quickly and
needed to slow down and give the kite a chance to finish what
it was doing. In Devin's and others' capable hands the kite
was very pretty to watch as it slowly and gracefully did its tricks.

Although I did think the panel layout reminded me of the
New Tech Dynamite.

I usually can't watch too much of a trick video but I have to say... I watched this one to the end. Great flying but I also liked it as the tricks were very slow (as mentioned). Really a treat to watch.

I have to agree with the New Tech 'bug face' look. But really, how many choices are there in a 10 foot trickable kite ? I was all set to order a Solus, now I'm thinking I should wait to see if they make this one. With the right colors, it might look real sharp, too. I want one, keep us posted...
