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".

Great answer, thx a lot m8, cleared up most of my questions Smiley

I don't know if I'm able to get a Blue Moon in Europe, but I'll take a look at it, or maybe check out the ones you guys mentioned, Over and Level One.

The Benson DS is available in Europe (made in GB), and a top choice.  Don't know what they cost in Europe - they aren't cheap (not the most expensive, but close, and definitely worth it...)

You can find them used (they are one of the more popular topline kites).

My experience is that your next kite purchase won't be most valuable for itself, but more in terms of what it teaches you that you can apply to the next kite you will buy.

Maybe a little off topic, but if you can find the "one kite that satisfies all my needs" then I profess you are not experiencing kiting the way most of us do.

Definitely check out Level One.  I love my JJF's.  I got the SUL when I was still in my nose dive phase and it's held up like a champ.  They're always first out of the bag.
