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".

Funny, I just looked for it on his web site and it was nowhere to be found.
Not even a mention of it.

Clearly there are those of us with forensic skills in these matters.

The specs for the Superfly show

239 gms (including 19 gm weight)

That's 8.4 oz with weight and 7.7 oz without tail weight.

For a 7.25 foot kite that sounds more like a UL than a standard.

Very interesting (or a typo?)......

Same weight as a DS UL.  Framing similar to a DS standard though.

Wider wing span than DS, but higher aspect as well so LE lengths probably not dissimilar.

Even allowing for yoyo stoppers than roll bars and I'm guessing a 5mm US, 238g is a bit lower than I would have expected.

Everyone needs more kites.

It's the answer to the question of the universe (not 42).
