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 noticed there are many recommendations for BMK, but where can you purchase a BMK from?  I looked at Chico first, BMK website and googled it but I don't really see where to buy them.  Thanks!

I called Ken when I was ready to buy my Exile & Mantis. Great guy to talk to, and such a privilege to talk to the guy who makes the magic. Smiley

So, you have to call them direct?  Can you share approximate costs, there are not any on the website.

Ken's taking a "working sabbatical" but says he should be resuming production in about another month. But give him a call or send an email. He's always been willing to talk and can give you the straight scoop. As was said, he's a great guy.

Click on the "specs" link on each kite model page for the specs and pricing.

The last time I checked, the link for specs and prices for the MAMBA and the MANTIS was broken. If you check under the "PRODUCTS" tab, then "PARTS", you can find the specs for each kite. No prices though. For that you will need to talk to Ken. Unless the prices have changed, a MANTIS std is about $280US.

BTW the kite pictured to the left for my avatar is a custom coloured MANTIS back lit by the sun. It's a beautiful thing. Wink

If you just started looking at BMK, and are serious, you better start working on the colorizer now! That way you might have a colour scheme nailed down by next spring. Cheesy Cheesy Wink

Specs links for Mamba & Mantis work fine.... Ken is very quick to fix things like that.
