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".

something we haven't done in a long time is to solicit ideas for new products you would really like to see unveiled at this years kite trade show.
what do you hope for?
Whimsy is always acceptable ... after all ... this is kites we are talking about.
that Prism Quad that has been rumored for years???
Andy Preston's update to the Stranger Level 7???
and affordable Pyro Ghost Delta from Frank Schwiemann???
ANYTHING dual line from Matheson or Jordan???
The Gemini II (electric bugaloo)

It would be great if someone made a nice big (8'+) rok of decent quality at a decent price, made ramlal tien licensed Sentinelles for under two bills, licensed the chiroptera from will sturdy to increase availability, and finally convince scott hampton to make kites full time.

If easier, world peace would do.

Oh Steve.... how could you leave off the list....

circa 2009:

"As previously announced, the new TT in the development phase.

...

The new TT is optically closely applied to the known Tricktail design. He is, of course, "modernized" in several respects, so he gets on predominantly sailmaker seams (except for the profiles), proven APA connector and screw standoffs."

Stunt kite that will do every trick invented... and a few that are not yet invented.
Flies in 1-30mph winds... and indoors if its raining/snowing.
Complete with it's own lines.
Looks good to everyone.
Will easily stand up to lawn jarting.
Can also be flown as a quad.



Oh, and in the under $100 price range.


I'll need to make my whimsy post later this week.

I do have to admit that I was being a little unrealistic.

I think sub $120 would be fair.
