Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Another one already at new retail price. My 1st thought was shill bidding. 2nd thought maybe seller is in some kinda trouble and the bidders know that. Laundering makes me kinda pissed for a lot of reasons. MAIN one is it reminds me how much income taxes SUCK!! Man if my posts can drive the price of a kite I got a Sky Dog Black Dog I could let go for a mere $500.00. Zephyr taught me more but the Black Dog has been more fun.More like my Mongoose than the others. Fantastic kite in the wet. Hence the name Mudder. Okay $500.00 is a little greedy. $475.00 and I'll throw in a 90# x 100' LPG set with a pair of Peter Lynn black and yellow straps with a metal ring. Like them so much I got 3 pair. Dang now that I think about it those straps are worth a fortune. Back up to $500.00. If you're crazy enough to buy it rest assured the money will be going to England's Mr.Tim Benson.

IT's not one particular part for me.  I enjoy the whole process be it a resto job people say can't be done or a fresh idea from my own head.  I'm a tinkerer and crafter by nature though and often find that once the project is done, no matter how satisfying the out come, there is a bit of a let down until the next project is started.

Prism Zephyr on Ebay with 1 day left at $639.00  Huh. Am I missing something? The seller should be able to get the kite of their dreams if that deal goes thru.

It's funny, Breezin -- I did a bunch of searches on the Zephyr not too long ago, and your detailed posts on the two kite forums were among the first to come up.  So, when this ebay listing started to zoom up, I assumed that your posts were driving the perceived value of the kite model up! (FWIW, I didn't bid on the Ebay Zephyr.)

Lee S's speculation is interesting; never thought of that kind of misuse of Ebay.

Joe

P.S. - Breezin, still kinda regret not buying your well-flown Zephyr!

I updated the plans for my Bird of Prey 36 and 36M, Raptor 36M and Viper 36M.  The changes are as followings:

 - Changed the Cuben Fiber designation to Dyneema Composite Fabric (DCF).
 - Indicated the location for each of the hand stitch holes for the various reinforcements.

I will update the plans for the Bird of Prey 18 and 24 in the very near future for the changes listed above.

Yours in kiting,

Doug

Possible Shill bidding to drive up the price...

Most satisfying for me on a new design is the first flight that goes better than expected, which leads to a big grin.  Grin  Most satisfy for me on building an existing design is when the sail is all done and the next step is to make the frame and assemble.

Thanks for that perspective, Allen. So was it aesthetic?

Welcome to the Forum.

 Good luck with your hunt.

Flying without friends is not as much fun.

You might attempt to "show" a few of your friends the joy of the sport.  Smiley
