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".

My "A" bag has Talons and a Deep Space in it.
I'd like to add some Cosmic TC's to it though.  Wink

Uhmm.... Let me see.... Oh, that´s easy for me, since I don´t have more kites, than there´s room for in my bag.  Cheesy

But my 2 A-kites are the MB Synthesis and the Talon UL, and they are true A-material. Don´t see them leaving my bag, in a foreseeable future.

The remaining 3 "slots" in the bag filled by : Wolkenstürmer Devil (non-tricking, but nice), Gunther Royal loop (very cheap, but serves a purpose. And it was "my first") and a Skoda advertising 2-liner (even cheaper, like free). The last 3 kites is only in the bag, because there´s room for them, and for letting others try a 2-line if they want to.

But, hopefully I will replace the Wolkenstürmer, Gunther and Skoda in the next 6-8 months... I´ve got something brewing... Wink

Update : The bag is now also carrying an AeroStar Stryke fighter.
