Hi Yvan,
the pics you could see shows Zodiac towing Blanik L-13 with 2 on board.
MTOW of Blanik is 500kgs. So I think Zodiac can tow most of gliders.
Our Zodiacs are registered in in microlight category, however they could be registered also in LSA category till 560kgs or experimental.

Hi Yvan,
On your email address I am sending few photos of towing hook, one of them in detail.
In case of interest it is possible to make few pieces for you/your friends.
This towing hook is certified by Slovak Federation of UL Flying.
With Woodcomp Varia- 2 blade in-flight adjustable propeller Zodiac's towing performance is excellent. I think with DUC -3 blade tow propeller the performance would be even better.
