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.

They are making the Fulcrum quad, so there must be some assembly going on.....I am not certain how big the group cutting and sewing is.

He made a Pro Dancer for me a few months back. Seen some pics of a single line kite he's recently done.Got the white Widow Maker Pro sewn by Steve that was listed here. Super happy with both. Hopefully they'll be making more . Got the impression that Inak, Niknak,Aura and the like had become cost prohibitive to make. If 10 of us were to each order a Solus maybe we could twist his arm. I'd sure like to have a purple one with pink dorts.

Sky Burner has not disappeared.  We are very busy with the new Fulcrum and also making lots of Pro Dancer SUL's.  Been thinking of doing some custom widow makers and solus in the fall if time allows.  Will keep you posted.

Fantastic!!! Kite fund now has laser focus. SOLUS!!! Color and lack of dorts won't matter. Oh damn Widow Maker comes in a UL too. Decisions, decisions. Better start saving for both. Fingers crossed.
