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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Yeah, I'd say a Talon is at least 3X's better than a Zephyr.

When the Maestro II is changed, which only takes about an hour, the kite:
- has like no oversteering
- is slower
- is way more precise
- has a bigger windrange in both upper and lower
- handles bumpy winds better
- is more stable in backflip and fade
- is more easy to trick
- has more overall control
- does way more tricks
- makes more noise
...all this is, with the materials of the original kite, after the modifications !
If you want to use better materials, then use the upgrades step by step, it gets better & better...

The talon is more than 3 times the zeph. If you got a talon second hand in decent colours that would be a result even if you spent a little bit more Cool
