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".

Although its not all black it looks great in the sky, (I think John has a airborne pic) and tracks like its on rails.

Trying a better link


Wish I could locate more so I could stack them


Hmmm, I have one of these that I've considered letting go.  I love the looks but it just doesn't get flown as much as it should.  I'll take it out tonight and see what kind of condition it's in (should be excellent).

Black is too heavy for UL or SUL kites.  Wink

jim

MPO jim is correct. Black would fit a vented kite better. But of course that is a personal opion.

black and SUL is the ultimate irony as far as kites are concerned - it totally works!

Power and a solid statement of solid black - just amazing IMO.  Heavy and solid, but flys in nothing - sweet!
