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.

Do you still have that vented Benson or is it a Talon I'm still learning.  All I know is its the kite that has a lot of holes near the center. 

If so, and if you ever want to sell it pm me please. That thing is pretty. ....

Oh yes, my Talons from Jest of Eve!
It was a GREAT looking set: SUL-UL-STD-Vent:

I sold them all... The SUL (sail) alone and the other three as set.


Of course my old Talons were the inspiration for my Enigmaset:


So, that took you more than half an hour.  Grin

Holy cow that is some good flying.

When replacing framing on any of Lam's SUL kites, I highly recommend that you call and talk to him first.

Try (but very carefully) by heating the lower part of the metallic ferrule with a heat gun.

Drop the spar vertically on the ground from time to time to "break" the superglue.

It works, not always, but sometimes...

You can heat too the bottom of the spar to remove the broken nock.

Take care with acetone that can damage the spar if you leave this product a long time on the carbon.

Good luck... and sorry for my bad English.  Sad

P.S. : that's why ferrules must always been glued with hot glue!

I have a prism eclipse and the nock broke off of the leading edge. I have a replacement lower leading edge that I was going to swap in (because the nock is like old arrow nocks and is superglued into position. When I removed the lower leading edge I found that the ferrule to connect to the upper leading edge is also super glued to the lower leading edge.

I need to either remove the superglued nock or the superglued ferrule to transfer it to the other leading edge.

I've tried acetone and boiling water to loosen it but no success. Any tips or suggestions?  I would love to revive this kite, but it's important to me to have symmetry in weight. (Also replacement nocks that I have don't fit because the leading edge tapers with a partially sealed edge.

Thanks I have a GPS sul with a 2pt and 3pt leading edge. It flies really nicely but I might swap it out to all 2pt hence the question  Cool

Does anyone know what the stock frame is on this kite? Thanks  Cool

 I believe mine is 2 pt (like most of his SULs).

He someone's does a special framing depending on what you are looking for. For example, one of my Transformer SULs has what Lam calls a 2/3 frame which has 3pt LS where he generally uses a slightly weighted 2pt.  I liked having a stock spar with the 3pt and love how the kite fly a with it.  So, there are variations available which he will sometimes recommend.
