Wills Wing Talon:

The Talon is our top of the line, competition class glider. The Talon is available in three sizes, and features a very high aspect ratio, semi-cantilevered "topless" configuration, an extraordinarily broad VG range with an exceptionally light pull, composite curved tips, drum tight sail, a highly effective four sprog stability system and superior build quality and hardware. The Talon’s speed range and handling qualities are unsurpassed in this class of glider.

For full competition level performance, add the Slipstream Performance Control Bar system with Faired Carbon or Aluminum Basetube and the mylar sail upgrade. Additional available options include carbon leading edge inserts.

The performance capability of the Talon is pretty exciting. But just as exciting is the way the Talon flies. The handling qualities are exceptional: the Talon circles and climbs effortlessly in thermals, and is exceptionally well mannered in non-uniform air. At speed, the Talon tracks straight and true, and pitch pressures are delightfully light, yet progressive and secure.
