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".

FINALLY, FINALLYthe FEARLESS arrived  Cheesy  Cheesy   Her spicey tan was stunning and she was just  Huh GEORGEOUS . The weather was very cloudy and overcast and rains were expected. Winds were in the 20-25 mph with gusts in the 35s  Shocked, so to relieve the twitching of the muscles, had to go out  Cry, Just had to go and fly  Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy .
The Fearless was fearless coming up against the gusts of winds, but being a " Light " , her 3pt frame said to go to the edge of the wind window and play with me  Tongue  Tongue . She was wonderful ....  cascades, JLs , backspins  ,wap do waps and when she went on her back   Tongue   Tongue  fades, multi-lazies ....... then i felt a few drops of moisture on my head , and i decided that on her maiden flight , this was enough, enough , enough !!!  Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy   so i packed up and went home before we both got drenched.  Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy

I need to find some $$$ fast.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
I'm heading out to get the Lotto Max. If I won, I will buy everyone here a Fearless VL or VS. I mean everyone here.  Wink

I see peace coming.  Tongue

After seeing the Fearless VL, I feel like I need to eat a Mango urgently.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Nice Mango !
I considered both yellow and orange for mine, too bad I didn't think of a combination like that, it looks sharp !
Glad to hear you're getting along with it, you're further up the learning curve than me, I'm still tuned to the Sea Devils and having a hard time getting the Fearless feel...

Gusts to 35 mph and a 3PT frame??

I'd have trouble standing, let alone doing tricks in 35 mph winds.

Nice looking kite though.  Smiley

We use km., not mile here in Canada.  Roll Eyes
35km. = 21.74799 miles

Don't panic. There is no sign of War of the Kite World here.  Smiley

Well possibly but then his quote would read:-

Winds were in the 20-25 mph with gusts in the 22s

which makes no sense to 5 decimal places. He was talking about mph.

Very nice kite tempest,
That color combo looks good, I just got a light as well, but not the vented model. Just love it!! I also got a second set of lower spreaders in 5 pt, this gives the kite a little more strength in higher winds. I am thinking about the regular vented model as well, as this will cover the wind range well.Enjoy your new Fearless!!!! Wink Wink Wink

He just mixed up the km/mile thing. I was watching the TV weather report with him in that day. The wind was like 26km and gust to 37km.  Wink
