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".

Done!  The last of the tester kites. Further Enigma builds will be by commission. I have lots of flying to do now and several design and build projects lined up.  Winter flying here we come...

There were a few TC Ultras in the swap meet not too long ago from $50.00 to $125.00.

It's a quad also. BYTW I found the connecting lines to fly tandem. They are each 58 1/2 inches long including the loops.

Here are pics of my Mosquito.  It loves the high wind. The higher the better. It moves like lightning and very responsive. I used to fly it at Nahant Beach, MA with Bob Taten. He has since passed but a great guy to fly with.

The bottom one: is that a quad or just a smaller fast one?

By the way I purchased these new in Newport, RI at Sue's kite store on Thames Street.

Here are pics of my two TC Ultra's. The larger one is vented. Small one is not. Since I flew the large one more often I have found that the leading edges have small holes. This doesn't bother the flying of the kite. The small one is pristine.
These are both original TC Ultra's from Savannah, GA.  I have visited the shop a very long time ago.
I have flown them in tandem but I can't remember how I attached the together. Maybe I just used the bridle.
I'm not selling them at this time but would be interested in what you guys think a fair price would be.
I have quad handle also. Large (12") and small (10").
I also have 3 quad line sets on winders.
   Blue Line 100ft 100# Spectra Line
   Spectra (white) 90ft  80#
   Spectra (white) 52ft  80#
AS I said, none of these are for sale at this time. Just looking for pricing info.

These kite shops that produce these trick kites hire these so-called top end trick pilots. So this shop has Adrian who seems? to like machine gun inputing into his trick videos on/off the "7" website. So what? So I am figuring this ECO 7 7PT should be anything but SLUGGISH in terms of its inputing or you would think that would be these case for its design ... one commenter made the best comment ... your Vent that you would like is simply the Vent off your current go-to-kite or Standard (i.e., 5PT). Who can argue? I like the the T2 Vent but its sluggish in the lower part of its wind range at 10 mph ... it somewhat clicks 12-15 mph but is SLOWER and then ALOT MORE footwork is needed over 15 mph. Actually the L'Atelier XT.z is just as good IMO and seems to ENJOY higher winds more than Lam's T2 Vent. IMO nothing surpasses his lower wind creations (SSUL,SUL and Light). My XT.z is 8 years old ... I will give this top European company a shot thinking this kite should have good input response, be non-sluggish and is POSSIBLY? trick firiendly at 15 mph or flies like a Standard (5PT) ... beyond this wind level its probably all bulls**t anyway.

Its only money ...


You have nothing to worry about. Jorgen is a good guy and his builds are top notch. The seven vent doesn't have too much vent on it like some vented kites so I reckon you will be fine and it will stay powered up. I would still go for the full blown non-eco version though.

If you don't like it then sell it to me  Cool

Jorgen finished making a red Eco 7 ultralight for me. It's currently in transit. Can't wait for it to arrive.

Xmas present for myself  Smiley
