Great all around glider, some say flys better than the pulse. XC(one I've flown) has VG, great glider to move up to from a falcon. Holds value very well.

As noted, a great all around glider and an excellent first double surface wing. Handles similar to a Pulse but gets a slightly better glide. Slightly more squirrelly on tow than a Pulse.

Love this glider, as soon as I took off for the first time on one it felt like I'd been flying it for years, like shaking hands with an old friend. Excellent ground handling in strong wind and perfect to launch and land.
At 100kg hook in on the 154xc I need some good lift or I'm scratching though it makes it very responsive at the top end. Just a very good all rounder that is well built and easy to set up, I would buy another but the next size up.

Aile très stable, décolle et pose partout en toutes conditions, un bijou dans le thermique.

The 154 Sting 2 XC is an easy and fun glider to fly. Sets up quickly, launches nice, handles great and lands good. Airborne has good hardware and very nice craftsmanship. I prefer the spring loaded battens over the flip tips. Can't say any thing negative about this glider!

I have one 175 Sting 2 XC it is very easy to launched and landing too very nice glider to fly. Sets up is too fast , handles is very good. i think Airborne is the first perfect hang gliders manufacturer in the world. I prefer to fly only by air born hang gliders. Can say all things are positive about this glider.

I fly an Airbourne Sting 2. It works well with my DoodleBug, winch tow and hill lauching.
I Aerotow too. This is more difficult with this glider as I fly with a chest release. If I set up a split release with the force of tow (load split from the keel and pilot, my arms would not hurt as much holding back the base bar. The reflex on this glider will pitch up with the airspeed used to tow hang gliders with aerotowing.
Great intermediate wing. Good all rounder I say.
