  2. Looks like they've updated the website. The above is a dead link. Just a heads up.
  3. Was asked if I was a professional flyer. Gues I've made it to the intermediate level?

  4. Back in Oct. at the Enid convention, I won a stack of 24ish Skyfox. They vary in condition, but I was able to get 12 strung together. Now I need to figure out how to connect it to lines. This is my first stack so I'm very new to this. Can I get some help with control bar parameters? And maybe a pic of the bar? I don't think there is a control bar in the bag but I'll look this evening. And, in a 10-15mph wind how strong a pull can I expect? They are small about 24" wing span. Thanks any help/advice would be appreciated. Monte I posted this at the end of a thread on the GWTW site, http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=9638.msg87133#msg87133 and wondered what you guys had to add?

    @ Dust- It flies like a tank and has some pull to it as well. I've had it for a couple of months but was unable to fly it until recently. @ Must86- While it was INDEED too hot to fly most of the time, I was able to get some time in on my other kites...BUSTED rods on 2 of my 3 trick kites. But I have a couple of tricks in my bag now. I guess I'm just waiting to fill a "big" order at Goodwinds.com
