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".

3 meters?  Thats almost 10 feet - I don't think you will find much on the market that large and cetainly nothing that will trick well (just too much wing in my mind).

Yes, I always liked that series of videos. I have a couple of 10 foot wings, great fun to fly & plenty trickable. They do need plenty of slack and start to pull pretty hard when the wind gets up around 10mph. There was a Firestorm for sale in the swap a while ago for a good price.... did anyone pick that one up ?

I am presently looking at a similar SS85 UL without

the split inner panel.

Bill's build skills are very good.

Looking forward to flying it.

Thanks John! Enjoy!

Thanks Ara! That's the "nicest" comment anyone's made for any of my builds! Wink

I just finished 'skin #2' about an hour ago. Planning on assembling (with seam tape) all three first ....before I start sewing them.

Here's #1 & #2 together:

Skydogs discontinued Sweet Emotion. Not a low wind kite, but it's trickable wind range is by far greater than my other kites.

Oh man, do I ever love his stuff!  Only downside is they do take a while to put together, even when you do know what you're doing  Tongue
