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".

A bit like dual line compulsories being weighted toward deltas, being overly difficult or impossible on flexifoils or diamonds. Smiley

I'm just saying.
Anyone can make a delta. Flexifoil made several. Even Trlby made them.

Only one company can make a Rev. OK, several companies make "Revs" but.... only one should.

and rev even made a dual line too............

At least two!  One (can't remember it's name) designed by Ron Reich in the mid 90's and the Phase II by Dodd in around 1998

For whoever asked about the pig....It's an asymetrical shape so any kind of precision is pretty sloppy. It's different and fun to play with though. Since a local flier can't seem to forget the movie Deliverance, I usually leave mine at home. So far, nothing seems to beat a Rev.

The one you can't remember was the "Rev Classic", which was a six foot delta with Rev spars. Alan Nagau was also involved in its design.

Allow me to add another solid quad kite, a pretty low-key kite framed in Skyshark, Icarex sail:




Here's video of its maiden flight in Singapore in shifty winds (5mph). I was a bit apprehensive with it, as the handles are different, held more to the center rather than near the top as in regular REV handles.  I think with my practice with it, its a super nice kite with very precise and smooth flight:

That's different. Looks like a Supersonic with spoilers. Do you know the purpose or how it flies?

Not a clue. I just ran across it while looking for something else and thought it might be of interest to others.
