I am close to placing an order for a new WW Sport 2 155 from Rob Mackenzie, and will of course post a shot of it here once I take delivery. In the meantime I have a chance to buy this other wing that is also yellow (mustard?). It's a bit more than the Sport 2, so any recommendations on which one I should get?

Is this a rhetorical question? :crazy: The obvious choice is both! :mosh:

I've never flown a Super-D, but have some time in its little brother the Citabria.

I always find it interesting that you chose a HG forum to stroke your ego. I've read post after post about how much money you have but not one HG flight report. My advice on the Sport 2 is don't wast your money you are never going to fly it anyway.

If I am don't mistaken that's a "powered HG" with a LD of 10:1 in glide mode.

Hello Joe, Thanks for the input or advice on the Sports 2. I guess one mans attempt at humor is another mans invite for class warfare? I am a retired Firefighter/Paramedic, and the only other real paycheck or income I have had was from four years in the Marine Corps and from various investments, mostly in real estate. I have had much good luck in life but I have, through hard work, dedication and focus, earned what ever I have and I make no apologies for being in a position to enjoy the fruits of my labour. I have been flying HG, PG, sailplanes and power planes for over 20 years. Over the last three years I have been limited in what wings I can fly, due to a pending hip replacement and possibly back surgery. I am optimistic that I will soon be using my feet for landing gear soon, hence the desire for a Sport 2 although I do have several older wings. Until my medical issues are resolved I have mostly been flying sailplanes as well as super floaters and Goats which are Part 103 aircraft, and are actually Class 4 hang gliders. I suppose posting anything on the net about wings or exploits with them is an expression of some sort of ego, but rather than raining on my parade, why don't you join me for a flight some time so I can really stoke my ego. PM me if you want to go up in the Grob sometime at Elsinore, or if I am fortunate to close the deal on this Super Decathlon, I am sure even a HG jockey would get a kick out of a ride in it. Hope to see you next weekend at AJX for the WW CA demo days. See you in the air, Alan :surrender:

I like the custom black border inlay within the fluorescent lime. Very nice!

NICE I like :thumbsup:

Roughly what are we likely to pay for a similar new glider ?
At the moment the US$ is sliding away from NZ $, but on the other hand closing in on with the Aust $.
Therefore I need to compare apples with apples.

The Litespeed and T2C are pretty close in price, Apples to Apples. this glider has a bunch of little custom options including fabric, sail design, sewn with all black thread, etc. That push the price. This glider also has some options that aren't on a Litespeed, like the speed battens and raked tips. if you get the two gliders built with similar options, the price is pretty close.
