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".

So, any other 'got one back that got away' kites out there?

OK, missed that bit on the Ichiban post.

One that generated quite a few Frequent Flier Miles that eventually made its way back to me is a '98 HQ Zenith, that I snarfed off Dan's Bargin Page (sic) for $56.

Another local kiter liked it and asked to buy it. I didn't really want to sell it, but figured I could always get another.
Trouble is, HQ discontinued the Midi & Zenith and the supply dried up.

I later found that he had flipped it and doubled his money, as I sold it for less than Dan charged me.
I'd go broke even faster than normal if I was in the kite business.  Lips sealed

Several years later I was doing a kite swap for a red fade Zenith and much to my surprise, it turned out to be the very same Zenith, as it had some distinguishing repairs and marks on it.
I was so happy to have it back, it's got more airtime on it than any of my other dual line kites

Mr. Brown,

You may have sold some kites, but you've given

many away. I tip my hat to you, JimB and many others.

The first seller's remorse kite that comes to mind is my Blue Moon Kites Ichiban.
I got in a tough financial spot after the divorce and having the place I worked at 30 years shut down.
I lived off my savings for several years and sold kites towards the end to make the rent.
The Ichiban was the hardest to sell, it was a beautiful kite.

The trick is to never sell any of your kites.

Giving them away is acceptable.  Smiley

Totally agree!
