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".

Lams kites have been ruling my world for many years now despite my best efforts to find something I like better. 

It never occurred to me that he was 'The 'Lord', but it all makes sense to me now.  I think I've found a religion that I can fully get behind!  Smiley

I got to see a couple of ATMs being flown today, by kite flyers of varying skill levels.  Much like the Sea Devil, it is a very flyer friendly kite.  For experienced flyers it takes everything they throw at it with no apparent quirks or foibles.  When flyers with less experience got on the straps it was really well behaved, and forgiving of imprecise inputs.

One really nice characteristic was the way it held position between tricks for people unused to stringing combinations together in quick succession.  There was almost a pause at the end of each trick when you could decide what you wanted the kite to do next without it changing orientation until YOU made an input.  Very civilised!

Build quality on the two kites was very good.  Some kite collectors may be diasappointed that hte kites aren't totally custom built to their colour choice, but most buyers will be really pleased to have a kite that clearly reflects the designer and the designs that have preceded it

Nice job Lam!

Sounds like my skill level   Cheesy

But I really love Lam's Tekken design.  We are becoming best friends.

Lam did at one time have some of his sails sewn by Heads Up, the same as Skyburner currently does. Nothing wrong with that.

Best graphics from Lam IMO, I was never fond of the eyes.

Not to worry, when the kite come everyone can see how is the kite made and look like.

I would not have less than all the best made for my kite. All new design parts, nose cover up everything look clean from top to bottom for the ATM

Good day my friend.
