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".

Benson
Gemini
Deep Space

Revolution
1.5
1
2

BMK
Mamba

Flexifoil
Matrix

Prism
Vapor
Elixir
Prophecy

They all have different personalities.  All good

Most of what I own are old school.  I'm currently looking at picking up a Widow Maker or ??  for the new school tricking.
First kites for me out of the bag are a Rev usually 1.5 and Benson Gemini.  Since I fly near the beach most of my kites are Standards.

As many of my favorites are now in other people's kite bags, I had to think on this one.

But...

#1.   HQ Tramontana 2000 HP
#2.   PBSK Warrior
#3.   AB+ SUL

Obviously, I have not bought or flown anything new in quite a while.

The only 21st Century kite I flew regularly was the Flying Wings Soul, but it's been quite a while since it has seen the light of day.

Usually it's either a '98 Hq Zenith or Midi out of a pool of 8 or 10 frame & colour variations for dual line flying.
I fly Progressive Line Voodoos in std & UL framing some times
Spectra Sport Trix Pro if I want to be obnoxiously loud while banging out Old Skool tricks.  Roll Eyes

For no wind dual line, it's a Reed Richards ZDXL or A Little Pizazz, made from the Dick Barnes workshop kit.

For quad line, it's a set of Bazzer Pro B-Series, but I like the Mid-Vent best.
If I'm just looking for something different, a Joel Scholz Vampire Bat, in some ways, it flies better than a Rev. Sure looks more interesting!
