The target 16 was the second glider I ever flew. It was very easy to scooter tow, aerotow and footlaunch. PIO's were non existent even while training with this glider. It was also easy to keep up with and even out climb other gliders, but penetration lacked.

I trained on this glider and found it quite forgiving. I am hoping to fly across the UK from Land's End to John O'Groats on Target hang glider.

I trained using this glider and also bought is as my first glider. It has many nice details in the design. It has easy and predictable handling and tows great.

Great first glider.

The Target was the second glider that I owned. It is very easy to rig, forgiving in flight, easy to tow and hill launch. Yes it packs down to 6 feet, but that is not the sort of thing you will want to do too often. Landing this thing is great, if you are too high just stuff the bar and it comes down nicely. It can be a bit lively ground handling in strong conditions and penetration lacks. Overall a great glider for someone out of school or for someone looking for stress free easy flying.
