Welcome Matt

Ask away we all started knowing nothing about Esoaring and some of us like me still know very little
Cheers Bruce

Matt, there are no silly questions so no problem there!

Also, unlike most forums - on this forum you will not get any silly answers.
(I've found you will only get help from those who know what they're talking about Wink )

Hi Matt,
I know this is an old thread but I noticed that I'm following in your footsteps.

I've done a lot of slope soaring and now just about to get into F5J. On top of that I'm looking at the Sprite, Orion or Geronimo as my first thermal glider. Was hoping to get some info from you about both models you have and if you prefer/ recommend one over the other? How do they go in competition?

My other option is to buy a second hand stork/maxa/perfection but obviously that will be more expensive and I don't want to over invest

Thanks for any help
