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.

Got my new Jammin' kite so I decoded to give it a try. I flew it at night with barely no wind. Trying to get the most out of 1-2 mph wind puffs. For sure was a great workout.

Nice kite to fly.

Here is my video.

Thanks NormP:

I Was using the lines that came with the kite. 150 Lbs./80 Ft Lines.

For the cascades keep your eyes on the nose. concentrate on making a small tug with the opposite hand from where the nose is pointing. When the nose is pointing left tug right hand, when is pointing right tug left hand. and just keep the cycle going.

Thanks Ara:

The Taz is one of those tricks that not all kites can do. I have a French Connection 2 (one of my favorite tricking kites) that its impossible to pull a Taz out of it.

Let me know how it goes.

Nice flying!

I take it that this is the latest version of the old Jam Session?  If so it's certainly a lot more tricky than my old Jam Session (2001) use to be - very impressive.

I do like Dodd's/Skydog kites - Clean lines, simple frames and good performance, my sort of kite. Sadly they are no longer available from UK dealers and seldom turn up used. Pity as I quite fancy trying the Crossfire!
