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 have to admit the pilot was "not" moving much in the video - it certainly is worth looking at or trying - no SUL needed - just a UL? HMMM ... this I doubt - but interesting kite - just to see how much inferior it is next to the Transformer or Fearless - so we are clear.

When you learn how to fly you'll find that std. and UL kites have a much wider wind window than it did when you were still in the flailing stage.


So true.


I started to make a list of all the ways the Transformer is inferior to Hugo but the list got way too long so suffice it to say the Transformer is inferior to Hugo in almost every way conceivable.

Hugo sounds like my type of kite.

Instead of the long list, how about the short list where the Transformer has the edge?

Thanks

The Transformer is more forgiving of "not quite right" inputs.

I liked it better when we argued about politics!  Smiley

So you are saying that one kite wants you to work for your tricks while the other gives them away for free?  Smiley.  Just kidding.....

I'm a master of the "not quite right" inputs. Even now I can hear Chilese barking out instructions in my ear as I complete another sloppy trick  Wink

I'd say ANY way you can get the trick done, sloppy inputs or not, is right fine by me...........I think I could more than challenge you on whom's the most master of sloppy technque.

Jim, I have to warn you I'm pretty competitive. Wink

"Master of Sloppy Technque" That is a title work fighting for.  Grin

so if the wind is around 1 mph in July and the air temp is 65* at 8AM and its low tide and I have the full waterline to myself I should sell my Tattoo and run around MORE with this Hugo standard that can really track well - OK Dwayne  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I never suggested that you sell your kites or that you buy a Hugo. In fact I'll say that if you really like your Transformer, keep it and save your money. You wouldn't like the Hugo at all.  Wink
