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".

Thanks to all also for the info on line lengths.
I will make a set of 15m and another of 10m and will try the Talon UL in very low wind.
See what difference it makes with respect to the 20 and 25m.
Cheers.

Or if you want to go for the ultimate in low wind performance, minus nearly total trickability, but for a very Zen like experience:

2.8oz at 98" wingspan

Wind in the vid is well below 1mph, windmaster was standing still.

Thanks for trefs.
Both the IMGP0013 and the TTUL are very nice, but they are not what I had in mind.
I think I've made up my mind for the Aura, but I'm trying to make my budget feasible  Roll Eyes
