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.

Good precision or team kite but not for good for slack line tricks was my experience.

Hello dszo. On my 5th flight broke bottom spreader on my Widow ng Cry. My bad not the kite. I got a Premier Nighthawk too. It's not broke yet !! Yesterday I finally got some good wind. Took the Nighthawk, Prism snapshot 1.4 and micron out for 1st flights. Had so much fun with the Nighthawk forgot to fly the other 2. Really pleased with my Premiers. Except for getting a sul I won't be needing another kite for a long time. Want welll.

I broke several lower spreaders on my Widow ng also.
Always the same place - a crack at the center T end of the female spreader.
Solved the problem be warping the end of the spreader with glass reinforced packing tape (early to find at a hardware store). Havenít had a problem since.

Talked to Jim at fun with wind yesterday. He suggested c clips on either side of spine bungee to tension. Parts on the way.Think solution will look factory made.
