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".

I feel li like a fool in asking but here goes.
I am ready to build my 1st modern trick Kite.
But am a bit confused by all the different names suck as Sky shark, and different tapers etc.
So could someone here explain to an idiot the basic spars n fittings and ferrues needed to make
ONE COMPLETE KITE.
i AM HOPING TO ORDER ALL MY MATERIALS FROM THE METROPOLIS PEOPLE IN GERMANY
 UNLESS SOME ONE GUIDES ME TO A COMPANY SITUATED IN ENGLAND
I HOPE I HAVE NOT SOUNDED TOO FOOLISH IN ASKING BASIC QUESTIONS
 BUT WE ARE NOT ALL CLEVER OR GRASP THINGS QUICKLY
 CHEERS MAYUR

It may be easier to help if you tell us which kite you want to build.  As you have discovered, there are many spar options and their diameters/specs are variable.  Pick a kite and share... then we can narrow down what you need to purchase regarding framing and fabric specs

If you're going for the Magnet, have a look at the shopping list that Carlo has graciously added to the Magnet plans. It should have everything you need, and if something is unclear we can take from there.
