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".

OK. Now I can say that this kite loves to spin fast. Likes Back-Spins, 340s, 540, Taz-Machines, and Crazy copters.

It also can do fades, half axles, cascades, J.Ls and insanes too. Its a fast kite so you have to treat the kite with gentle tugs to slow it down.

Thanks.

Thanks Alien:

The Kite has a 3 point standard bridle. The kite is flying with the standard tail weight setup and I lowered the tow points of the bridle about 1/2 inch to make the kite more responsive. 

This is my second video. Planning to make more videos with it in a near future.  Smiley

Hi NormP:

Thanks for your comments.

The sail is rip-stop nylon and the frame is made with 6 mm Carbon-fiber. Don't get me wrong, I love my kite I think is a great purchase. Best off all it can do a great selection of tricks that more expensive kites do.  Smiley

My guess is That SkyDog Has a great flying kite and decided to make it affordable for us.   Smiley

I Also Have a Duende (a $250 kite) It can do all the tricks too and its made with Icarex pc31, Wrapped carbon fiber frame.

The only trick I haven't been able to do with the Jammin that the Duende can do is the Yo-Fade.  Sad

iFLY2 with my Duende 2 2




About the fade I'll give it a 6 in a scale from 1 to 10.

The best fade kite I have is a French connection II UL. I have been able to do a rising fade all the way up to about 30-40 feet.


Check Min 0:55 and 2:14 of this video

For your other question I've been flying Stunt Kites for 6 Years  Smiley

Do you have any videos of pictures of your kites?

Hi NormP:

You have a Duende too...  Cool

I only flown it 4 times. Love the panel design and colors. you got the blue one

I like how Bell Chiu design his kites. I have a SilverFox 2.3 and 2.5 both ultralight too

Like the 2.3 better than the 2.5 but I added more tail weight to make it fly the way I like it. Smiley

Yes, I'm curious too.

Please compare with the Duende too against the SF Pro and the Soul.
Thanks!
