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".

the Mirage XL that Sam posted was in reality a standard Mirage, not the XL.  Never had any problems with it at all.

Thanks for the clarification.... thought it was just a prior year with different color scheme.

I read on a few reviews that the XL has had issues with things coming apart and having to be re-adjusted after or in flight??

If you can make appreciable adjustments to your kite in flight Huh, I am awed and a little scared .  I generally assumed that required the use of (exceptionally well-)trained falcons.  Wink

Very funny!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

What I meant to partly say was without the "in" on the adjusting part and falling apart on the "in" part. Wink

Here is part of a quote from a review I'm sure some of you have seen in the past somewhere.....

"The sail is made of several panels, the sewing is accurate and of a very good quality. However the standoff fittings needed to be fixed with some glue after losing two of them while flying. The bridle is made of a quite thick material which stretched during this summer making a resetting of the bridle necessary. I attached a pair of 35m, 130 kg Cyclone Extreme, which I think of being enough for only powerkiting".

It sounds like the kite may need some tweeking and will be somewhat cumbersome with the assembling and disassembling process. None the less I have it in my crosshairs.

Thanks for the detailed information on everything too!! Smiley
