Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
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".

I received word from one of the bidders who offered to trade some kites for those two Revs...

The simple reply back, more or less: "These Revolutions won't fly."

Nothing else to it, no declined offer or supporting info...

End of the day, as I understand it, these guys don't actually *have* to accept any of the final bids and pull the ad at any time without selling the products.

My guess, I don't think he actually has these kites to sell.

Seems to me the *entire* ad is a farce, put up purely for the purpose of libel.

Too bad someone with a bit of expendable cash didn't hit the buy it now button on the damaged Revs auction.......that could of been interesting...........that jerk would then have to cough up the kites in the described condition..........

Its all too late now, the post has been removed by the 'bay, finally.

Its BAAAAACCCKKKKK!!!!!!

Our favorite whipping boy has re-posted the so called "damaged" "unflyable" Rev Blast and SLE kites. Buy it now price of $699!!! What a deal!!!

Need to watch this line:

Professional reviews on these kites can be found online > "rev kite reviews-5025txc"


He may add a link of some sort.

I have sent him, through the  ask seller a question, the following message:

Quote
Will you post a photo of damage please.
If product is damaged, why such a high buy it now price? I could purchase both kites brand new from a authorized kite shop with sales tax for over $100 less.


Not expecting any response.....

Will someone pony up the 700 bones and call this guys bluff?

Pretty sure you wouldn't even have to put up the cash since he has never responded to ANY offers. But the supposed link he has on the page goes nowhere...? Before he had the libelous page that had everyone under investigation...

His big plan... There's a page of his somewhere with "rev kite reviews-5025txc" on it, and he's hoping that Google will index that little text line so people can search it up... That's what he'd done with the libel page before I had BlueHost take it down.

So, far, nothing.

Now, this forum page will come up too. Smiley

Friend of mine bought 2 of them, and had never had either out of the bags.    Was hurting for some $ so I bought one from him.  Might as well taken the money and burnt it.   Junk, junk, junk and that's putting it nicely.

That is not a real REV BLAST. How do I know I made the mistake of ordering one. If you notice the logo is on the wrong side
