Hi Guys, has anyone any experience of the Valenta ASW20? I fancy getting one in the future but I would value any comments.

There were two asw20s flying at the mynd today, my glasflugel and a valenta asw20. The Valenta flys nicely, the weight is about 4.5kg, my 20 is about 1kg heavier with retract etc, but its hard to tell them apart. I reckon you'd be happy with it. If you look on my blog for asw20 duet you can see both flying at the mynd.

Ive had two valenta asw20s, a bullet proof model, dont bother with the carbon d box option, the glass one is very very strong. They are great. Phil at glidermania can get hold of them fot you

I have just finished my Valenta ASW 20 and its a beautiful bit of kit and very nicely made. I have the all-carbon version and hopefully I can get it out on the slope in the near future.
The elevator required packing up on the leading edge by about 3 mm to achieve the correct incidence but apart for that its very easy to build and fit out.
