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".

The Mint has been kind enough to give us a nice weight for the newer coins for kite use:

1 penny weighs 2.5 grams
1 nickel weighs 5.0 grams

A cheap way to add keel weight in 2.5 gram increments for sure.  Smiley

The weight on the Nirvana are glued inside the spine and it is not removable like the other kites equiped with tail weight (except if you heat the spine to melt the glue...)
