Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Might this be the thing of your dreams? Got a couple from Dan waaaay back when, dunno where the other one went. May have given it away.

This one is more of a 'pusher' I guess, depending on perspective...
...




Update: Found it in the wayback machine! GWTW catalog circa March 1997. It is called a Kite Mate. Sold back then for the princely sum of $2. Later found it in the 2004 catalogue for a mere buck Wink




I have a few if anyone really wants one...

Thats Frank and he lives in Sydney. He is a very keen rev flier but also builds bols. He is an interesting guy as he took up flying the Rev to help with brain damage from a motor accident. Getting his fine motor skills tuned. He also gets around to plenty of festivals with plenty of bols ha ha. Great guy and prolific with the videos.

That's Frank (don't know his last name) in Sydney, Australia, or thereabouts. He was very active for a couple of years on the KiteLife forum but I haven't seen him on there for a while. He would basically make a video of almost every time he flew. It was fun watching his journey from novice to experienced flyer. I believe his handle there is Frankieflyin.

Doug sources his micro carbon rods not from the kite industry (if I understand correctly)...

Thank you both.  I had already checked Goodwind, Fly Market, and Kites and fun things.
They do not expect to be seeing the lighter rod any time soon.  I am hoping there may be someone out there with a stash.

Kites and Fun Things and Fly Market both list .125 pultruded with a .075" ID and a .065" ID. Goodwinds also lists .075" ID. Hope that helps
