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".

John, did Frank help you with those colors?   Cheesy

Had 2 mph of smooth (a rarity in this valley) wind this evening. I got in a groove with my UL. What fun. This really is an awesome kite. Just before I left I hit 5 Taz Machines in a row.  Cool

If you don't do them in both directions, and close to the center of the window, how are you going to get that Taz Cascade happening?

Sorry for opening an old thread..... But while Iīm waiting for my Talon UL, I have been passing the time reading up on Marks kites, on the forum. And stumpled into this one... And the colour-scheme-debate... Hmm.... "beauty is in the eye of the....", thats true. And then Marks hint "I NEVER use flo. pink..." Made me wonder, perhaps there soon will be three JoE kite colour-schemes, that Mark isīnt too fond of, the third being mine. Cheesy

But, and we touched this on email, Mark, mine doesīnt have flo. pink in it, it is Ruby Red, so maybe it will get the ok-stamp. Anyhoot, canīt wait for it to be made, and to it arrives here at my place. I just know it will be a beauty, for me to cherish for a long time. Mark, the Talon isīnt just a kite, itīs a work of art. Should I ever hang up my flying lines, Iīll keep the Talon, and hang it on my wall.

The longer I've had mine, the better looking they've gotten.
They're so good looking now the rest of my kites have gone into a closet to hide in shame.  Cheesy
Let us know how you like it after you get a chance to fly it.
And do post a picture here.  Wink

Oops.... I really forgot to post pic and oppinion here.... Shocked

Well, here is my Talon UL :


And how I like it ? Well, this kite cost me a good 3 times more, than my hitherto best kite. And let me tell you, itīs worth every last penny ! Iīm still very much the newbie-kiter, but to me it seems progress is coming a little (a lot, actually) more readily, with the Talon UL on the end of the strings. Since getting it, I have only flown one of my other kites one time. I have actually rolled up the lines, and gone home one day, when the wind picked up, to a little more than I like flying the Talon UL in. I could have put one of the "old" kites up, but, naahhh.... To much wind for Talon UL, might as well goe home. In short, I like my Talon UL. Like it a LOT !
 Grin

I am so enthused with it, that I have serious plans ordering a vented Talon, as soon as my "play-money"-economy allows this. I have a couple of other interesting kite-commitments to fullfill first Lips sealed, but Iīm looking forward to ordering one of Marks kites again.
