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".

Warrior a lot more radical.....
Bad boy is more sedate flying....
Bad Boy should have better wind range as well...

I have two PBSK kites. A Warrior and a Bad Boy. I am a VERY inexperienced flyer. In fact neither kite has been flown and I have almost zero experience flying any sport kite. Any body know these kites? I am going to sell one of them but would like to keep one if I ever get into flying. Will also sell a Prism Ozone and a Prism Microm that I flew a couple of times but I figure these must not be as desirable as the PBSKs. Kind of got into flying a foil as my beginner kite but due to work and really crappy winds here in the Rockies got out of it before I got the PBSKs. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

The weight is one part, the adhesive is a second can eventually peel up as stuff (sand etc) gets under it.

personal thought here: if you are thinking about selling a kite and seeing that it might need a bit of TLC I personally feel it is better to leave the repair to the end buyer. drop the price a little to get it to go instead.   if you were to tape up the LE's and the person that ends up buying it is proficient with a sewing machine they now have to contend with the original LE and the tape....
Just my two cents Wink

Yes he did use the sail material for the leading edge. What is interesting is that on my small one he did not do that. He stitched some material along the edge to protect the edge. It looks like ripstop nylon. That kite is perfect.
I went to a kite website in Massachusetts and they have a 25ft roll of self adhesive ripstop which I am considering getting and covering the leading edge of my larger Ultra. I don't think the added weight will make a difference.

Most of the recent builds have been SUL, UL, Std, and Vented sets which will cover a broad wind range.  As a study I rearranged some of the colorizer ideas into sets. My favorite is all white with black pinstripes. What would you put in the upper left?

TC used the kites fabric as the leading edge so it was typical that they would wear out.

I could remember when I started flying everyone who flew quad kites flew TC Ultras. I always wanted one but you never saw them for sale. I want to say that they sold for around $250 - $300. I now have three of them. One needs two lower leading edge spars but they are all in good condition. They are a lot of fun to break out and fly every once in awhile just because the are so different.
