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".

Hey fellows, which kites related stuff have you found under the Christmas Tree?
Here in Italy, Babbo Natale (Italian for Santa Claus) has not forgotten me and made me find
an Atelier 00 and a FW Aerobe (thanks Steve  Wink ) hoping in some no wind days Wink
Enjoy them!  Smiley and Merry Christmas!

Thanks, Jim. Now I just need to learn how to fly it.The Tattoo actually came before Christmas, and my wife didn't make me wait to play with it. I flew it a couple times, and some tricks I can do on it, some I can't. It does fly beautifully, though. Sure wish I had it the last time I saw you in the field, that day would've been perfect for it.

This is what I found, but it's because I was too slow in ordering my Jinx UL to have it in time for XMas Smiley

Got a kite store (Wendy's Kite Store, that is!), but no Aerobe like I had asked Santa for... wife said she couldn't find one anywhere.  :-(

Thanks Peter.

I framed the sail I got a hold of in 5PT (Black Diamond) too.

I haven't found a weight I like on it yet. It is very slow in the back flip, as is true with all Masques, with weight.

I've been flying it without ballast.

How much weight do you use?

I bought a complete Kite from Ramlal...he told me that there is 15 grams of balast on it...
