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".

Tis true. Smiley  (Not sure how long the link will last though Sad)

I flew a prototype version last year in horrible gusty 15-20+ mph winds and this flies just like the standard deep space, only with the wind range shift upwards by a good 5 mph.

Certainly good up to 15mph for sensible tricking (perhaps more if you're fit and fast Wink).

If you like the standard DS, you will like the vent.

I always liked the range of the standard. It's got a great low end and very light on the lines at the upper end too. It's got a range of tricks in it and is my go-to kite.  I have the Fearless and like the DS a lot better because it seems more capable for a variety of tricks. It's got great  cascades and I love the roll bar ground launches.

I can't imagine what the vented is like but it's got to be amazing considering how great the DS standard is. I'm wondering if I should part with my UL, standard, and vented Nirvanas and go just with the Bensons.
